With the Cardinals reporting to training camp later this week, backup quarterback Drew Stanton will line up for the conditioning test on Friday with a fully recovered MCL because of time.

“This is just kind of one of those things with the MCL, you just took a little bit more time to let it recover, let it get that strength back so it wasn’t so flexible,” Stanton said. “And really just go from there.”

Stanton injured his knee against St. Louis in Week 15, but wasn’t ruled out for the rest of the season, even leading up to the Cardinals’ wild-card playoff game at Carolina. The recovery process allowed Stanton to fully participate in OTAs and minicamp in May and June.

He filled in for starting quarterback Carson Palmer during 11-on-11 drills in minicamp.

“It’s responded really well,” Stanton said. “Starting way back when and kind of having a process and sticking to it, I haven’t had a day where it felt off or it didn’t feel like it recovered from the day before. It’s been a lot of hard work behind the scenes, but I think it’s paid off.”
