Stanton was the Cardinals’ No. 2 quarterback, but he was elevated to starter after Carson Palmer broke his arm. Blaine Gabbert is the backup to Stanton, and he would be in line to start in Week 11 if Stanton cannot play. Barkley would be the team’s third-string QB.
Barkley spent the 2015 season with Arizona.
