Arizona's shaky quarterback situation might be even more uncertain after Tuesday's practice.

Drew Stanton (knee) split first-team reps with Blaine Gabbert during the practice, coach Bruce Arians told reporters on Tuesday, per Darren Urban of the team's official site. Stanton needs to prove he can stay out of harm's way for him to be ensured the starting job this weekend, Arians explained.

We saw Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford struggle with a knee injury and how it all but eliminated his ability to scramble away from pressure during Minnesota's Week 5 win over the Chicago Bears. Arians doesn't want to see something similar from Stanton.

In preseason action, Gabbert gave Stanton a push for the backup job early, but couldn't sustain such play before Stanton pulled away in the competition. Now, with Carson Palmer sidelined, who takes the starter's reps is up in the air.

Other injuries we're tracking on Tuesday:

1. The Washington Redskins put running back Rob Kelley on injured reserve because of ankle and knee injuries. The 'Skins also made a bevy of other roster moves, including placing linebacker Will Compton (Lisfranc sprain) on IR, waiving defensive lineman Brandon Banks, releasing defensive lineman Tavaris Barnes from their practice squad and signing defensive lineman Caraun Reid and running back Byron Marshall.

2. The Cleveland Browns placed linebacker Jamie Collins (MCL) on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season.

3. The Panthers are shutting down receiver Curtis Samuel (ankle) and plan to place him on injured reserve, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported.

4. In non-injury news, the Philadelphia Eagles signed offensive tackle Will Beatty.

5. The Seattle Seahawks made a flurry of roster moves Tuesday, placing cornerback Richard Sherman (Achilles) and running back C.J. Prosise on injured reserve. In corresponding moves, the Seahawks signed veteran corner Byron Maxwell and promoted running back Mike Davis to the 53-man roster, the team announced.
