Cardinals' Stanton sidelined by right knee injury

ST. LOUIS (AP) Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton injured his right knee on a sack midway through the third quarter against the St. Louis Rams, and the team said he would not return Thursday night.

Stanton hopped off the field on one leg after getting medical attention and was carted off for tests.

Ryan Lindley replaced Stanton and completed a 6-yard pass to Michael Floyd that set up a 51-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro for a 9-3 lead. Lindley made his first appearance since 2012 when he started four games for Arizona.

Stanton was 12 of 20 for 109 yards.
