Arians said after the Washington loss that Blaine Gabbert would start. “It is no fault of Blaine.”

After looking good since taking over for Stanton when he got hurt, Gabbert really struggled in Week 15. He didn't throw a TD pass but did throw an interception among fumbling three times (losing one). Urban added in another tweet that Arians still thinks Gabbert can play but Stanton gives the team the best chance to win Sunday. This could put in doubt Gabbert's future status with the Cards as reports said the team was interested in bringing him back to at least provide some stability at the position with Palmer's status unknown.
