, Ariz. (AP) Blaine Gabbert will get his
first start for the Arizona Cardinals when they play the Texans in Houston on
Sunday.

Coach Bruce Arians announced the decision after Friday’s practice.

”It’s a big opportunity for him,” Arians said, ”but he’s been around the
block a few times.”

knee early in the Thursday night loss to Seattle last week. He stayed in the
game but has been limited in practice all week.

”Drew has made really good progress,” Arians said Authentic

, ”so it will probably be a game-time decision
as to whether he’s the backup.”

If Stanton can’t go, Gabbert’s backup will be recently signed Matt
Barkley.

Gabbert will be making his 41st NFL start. He has a 9-31 record. He signed
with Arizona last offseason and was the third quarterback until Carson Palmer
broke his arm against the Los Angeles Rams in London and was lost for the
season.

Gabbert, drafted 10th overall by Jacksonville out of Missouri in
2011 Authentic

, started 27 games in four seasons with the
Jaguars before being traded to San Francisco, where he started 13 games the last
two seasons.

Gabbert has said he is on the eighth head coach and seventh offensive
coordinator in what has been a difficult career.

Arians said he’s pleased with Gabbert’s ”understanding of what we do and how
we do it.”

Gabbert has completed 56 percent of his career passes for 7,351 yards and 38
touchdowns with 37 interceptions.
