Carson Palmer might throw during bye week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday quarterback Carson Palmer's injured right shoulder continues to improve, and he is hopeful the veteran quarterback will be able to throw this week. The Cardinals are on a bye Week 4.

Drew Stanton leads second-half comeback Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw two second-half touchdown passes to rookie receiver John Brown, leading Arizona to a 23-14 comeback win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Stanton completed 18 of 33 passes for 244 yards, while rushing for 16 yards on six carries.

Stanton didn't have a very productive first half, completing just 8 of 17 passes for 83 yards as Arizona trailed 14-6 by the break. Stanton then threw touchdown passes of 21 and 24 yards to Brown in the third quarter, and the Cardinals never looked back.

Stanton came close to throwing a third touchdown to Brown in the second half, but he overthrew Brown, who had run past his defender down the left sideline. It would have resulted in a 45-yard touchdown had Stanton hit Brown in stride. 

The Cardinals head into a bye Week 4 before returning to play Week 5 at Denver. If Carson Palmer (shoulder) is healthy, he is expected to resume the starting quarterback job.


Drew Stanton starts again in place of Carson Palmer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was inactive for a second straight game Week 3 vs. San Francisco because of a shoulder injury. Drew Stanton once again started in Palmer's absence.

Palmer was listed as questionable after being a limited participant in practice all week.


Cardinals planning to start Drew Stanton vs. 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer's status hasn't changed and that backup Drew Stanton is in line to start Sunday against the 49ers, reports the Bay Area News Group. Palmer has a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder.

Stanton completed 14 of 29 throws for 167 yards in the Week 2 win at the Giants.


Carson Palmer not any better Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who missed the Week 2 win at the Giants with a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder, showed no improvement Monday, according to the team's website.

"Hopefully any minute it starts working," Palmer said. "We'll see."

If healthy, Palmer will start Week 3 against the 49ers, even if he is unable to practice all week. Drew Stanton will make his second straight start if Palmer can't play. There is no timetable for Palmer's return.

"We're doing every kind of research we possibly can," coach Bruce Arians said about Palmer's injury. "He's getting every kind of treatment known to man. He's got more needles sticking in him half the day than most of us in our lifetime."


Drew Stanton leads Cards to win in place of injured QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw no touchdowns Sunday against the Giants. However, he was able to play turnover-free football and that was good enough to lead Arizona to a 25-14 win Week 2, despite starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined due to a shoulder injury.

Stanton completed less than half of his passes (14 for 29), finishing with 167 passing yards. He was sacked four times and rushed for minus-2 yards. Stanton was credited with an 8-yard passing touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald on the opening drive of the game, but it was called back as Fitzgerald was ruled down at the 1-yard line after an official review.

Stanton, who was making his first start since 2010, improved to 3-2 in five career starts. The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 against the 49ers and Stanton could make a second consecutive start, as coach Bruce Arians indicated after Sunday's game that Palmer could be out until after the team's Week 4 bye.


Drew Stanton starts for Carson Palmer Week 2


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was officially ruled inactive Week 2 at N.Y. Giants due to a shoulder injury. Drew Stanton drew the start in Palmer's absence.

Nerve issue in shoulder has Carson Palmer questionable


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is dealing with what coach Bruce Arians referred to as a "nerve thing" in his throwing shoulder, and is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants in Week 2.

Palmer has been limited throughout the week in practice, and the Arizona Republic reports he hasn't thrown much throughout the week. Still, despite being listed as questionable, Arians said he expects Palmer to play. 


Carson Palmer looks 'very frisky'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer showed surprising mobility in Monday's win over San Diego, rushing three times for 30 yards before a kneeldown at the end. He had three yards rushing all of last season.

"He was very frisky," coach Bruce Arians said of his 34-year-old quarterback. "He looked younger."

Palmer said the scrambles "felt great. It's been a long time since I've done that. High school, probably." Palmer also used his legs to buy time and avoid sacks.

If Palmer keeps it up, he has a chance to break his career high of 93 rushing yards set in 2009.


Carson Palmer should pick up where he left off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) It took a while for Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer to fully absorb coach Bruce Arians' system. Once he did, the results were eye-popping. In Arizona's 7-2 finish last year, Palmer threw 16 touchdowns against nine interceptions and surpassed 300 passing yards four times, including two games with 400-plus.

Over the second half of the season, Palmer ranked fourth in the NFL in passing yards. He finished with a career-high 4,274.

Palmer, 34, should post his fifth 4,000-yard season with ease. He's playing for an aggressive, pass-happy coach, and he's never had better weaponry: receivers Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Tedd Ginn and rookie John Brown, running back Andre Ellington and tight end John Carlson.

Palmer opens Monday night against the Chargers, who ranked 20th in Fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks (19.6 per game) last year. Consider him a borderline QB1 who can be started in deeper leagues.

Carson Palmer picked off once, can't find the end zone Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer struggled to move the ball against Cincinnati's first unit Sunday night in preseason play.

Palmer was picked off by Terence Newman in the first quarter. He played the entire first half and was unable to find the end zone. He compiled 92 yards through the air while completing only 9 of 17 passes. He is 18 of 30 for 267 yards with a touchdown and an interception this preseason.

Carson Palmer has near-flawless opening drive in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer enjoyed an impressive performance during Saturday's preseason opener against the Texans.

Palmer worked the opening drive with the first-team offense and fired a 7-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald. He was pulled for Drew Stanton in the ensuing drive. Palmer completed all five of his pass attempts for 84 yards, averaging 16.8 yards per attempt. He was sacked once and finished with a 158.3 passer rating.

Carson Palmer far more comfortable in Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is enjoying his second year in Bruce Arians' offense, reports ESPN.com. Last season he said he was "just swimming. Inside your head, you’re thinking about 80 different things."

Now, Palmer said he's only focused on "my first progression, my second progression, my third progression."

Tuesday's OTA "was actually enjoyable," Palmer added. "It wasn’t frustrating and all the motions you go through when you’re learning a new offense. I’ve had an entire offseason to study this offense and study our guys in this offense, and it was fun."


Carson Palmer: I feel like I'm 26


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) As the Cardinals finished last season on a 7-2 run, quarterback Carson Palmer ranked in the top 10 in completions, completion percentage, passing yards, yards per attempt, touchdown passes and passer rating. “My body feels great, like I did when I was 26,” Palmer told the Arizona Republic. “I was built to take hits, stay in the pocket and make throws. That’s always been one of my strengths.”

Palmer, 34, said he watched tape of the 2013 season and "it was like watching two different seasons, two different teams. It was amazing how much better we got across the board, from technique to execution, from the offensive line to the running backs to the routes run by wide receivers. What happens if we pick up where we left off?”


Arians remains confident in Carson Palmer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians remains high on quarterback Carson Palmer and doesn't expect him to slow down in 2014 even though he'll be 34, reports the San Francisco Chronicle

"There is no doubt he has plenty of juice left in the tank," Arians said. "He's in great condition. I would think he could play until 36, 37 easily."


Carson Palmer threw deep ball better as year progressed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was much more accurate on long throws later in the season, reports the Arizona Republic, which expects the 34-year-old to be the 2014 starter. Palmer was the only Arizona quarterback to take a snap this season.

He threw eight touchdowns against 13 interceptions over the first seven games. Over the final nine games, however, Palmer threw 16 touchdown passes with eight picks. The paper noted Palmer played through elbow and ankle injuries and should be better in the second year in Bruce Arians' system.


Carson Palmer throws for 400-plus yards in season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer bounced back from his recent struggles with a 400-yard passing performance during Sunday's season finale against the 49ers in Week 17.

Palmer was picked off by NaVorro Bowman in the opening quarter but got back on track with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jake Ballard on a 4th-and-goal play in the second quarter. He then hooked up with Andre Roberts for a 34-yard touchdown strike with 3:28 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Palmer completed 28 of 49 passes for 407 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception in a 23-20 defeat. He has passed for at least 300 yards five times. He finished the season with a career-high 4,274 passing yards, with 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

Carson Palmer way too risky to trust Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer will try to get back on track in a must-win home game against the 49ers in Week 17.

Palmer is seeking his first postseason birth since 2009 when he was a member of the Bengals. He was held to 178 passing yards, with one touchdown and four interceptions in a Week 16 win at Seattle. In his previous meeting, Palmer completed 25 of 41 passes for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The 49ers have allowed only 209.1 passing yards per game, which is the fourth fewest allowed in the league this season. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 14.80 Fantasy points per game this season. Palmer is also battling injuries to the ankle and right elbow, which makes him an even riskier play. Consider him a low-end option for the final game of the regular season.

Carson Palmer overcomes four picks with game-winning TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer overcame a roller-coaster performance as he bounced back with a game-winning touchdown to clinch a 17-10 win over the Seahawks in Week 16.

Palmer hooked up with Brittan Golden for a 67-yard gain but was intercepted by Kam Chancellor in the back of the end zone during the opening drive of the game. He was then picked off by Richard Sherman in the first quarter and again by Malcolm Smith in the second quarter. Palmer was picked off by Sherman again in the end zone in the fourth quarter.

Palmer led his team on a 10-play, 80-yard drive for the game-winning score. He hooked up with a leaping Michael Floyd, who made an acrobatic 31-yard catch in the end zone for a touchdown with 2:13 remaining in the game.

Palmer completed 13 of 25 passes for 178 yards, with one touchdown and four interceptions. He was sacked two times and finished the game with a 48.8 passer rating. He'll try to get back on track against the 49ers in Week 17.

Carson Palmer dealing with ankle injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) There was good news and bad news on the Carson Palmer injury front Wednesday. The Cardinals quarterback reported his elbow is feeling "much better," but now he's dealing with an ankle injury, according to the team's website. Palmer was limited in practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Seattle.


Banged up Carson Palmer has rough Week 16 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer entered Week 15 with an elbow injury. By the time it was over, he had also suffering a low ankle sprain (which coach Bruce Arians said is not serious). Now, for Week 16, Palmer has to face off against the Seattle Seahawks, who have allowed just 10 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, the lowest average in the league. 

The Seahawks haven't allowed a quarterback to score 20 points since Week 5. Last week, Eli Manning scored -3 points against Seattle. Five other quarterbacks have failed to hit double digits against the Seahawks this season, including Drew Brees (nine in Week 13). In Week 7, Palmer threw for 258 yards and a touchdown against Seattle. 

The case for Palmer is tough -- his owners essentially have to hope that he throws three touchdowns despite the varied injuries. But it's going to be tough. Palmer had a really nice run from Weeks 11 to 13, but a string of unfavorable matchups and injuries have essentially pushed him out of the top 20 among quarterbacks. 

Palmer can be benched in most formats. 


Carson Palmer diagnosed with low ankle sprain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer played through an ankle injury during Sunday's overtime win at Tennessee, but it appears he avoided a serious ailment. Coach Bruce Arians revealed Monday Palmer suffered just a low ankle sprain.

Carson Palmer quietly efficient in Week 15 win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer stayed away from mistakes in the Week 15 overtime win at Tennessee. He completed 20 of 30 throws for 231 yards and a touchdown, with no turnovers.

Palmer threw a 6-yard score to tight end Jake Ballard in the third quarter, giving him nine touchdowns against three turnovers in his last five games. He moved into 27th place on the NFL's all-time list for career passing yards.

Palmer has a brutal matchup Week 16 at Seattle. The Seahawks intercepted Palmer twice in Week 7, holding him to 5.7 yards per attempt, his second lowest average this season.


Carson Palmer ready to go


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who was questionable with an injury to his throwing elbow, is active for the game at Tennessee. Palmer put in limited practices last week and has not missed a game this season despite the injury.

Carson Palmer a risky start in Week 15


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/13/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is expected to start in Week 15 at Tennessee despite dealing with an elbow injury, but it's a tough matchup for him against the Titans.

The Titans were abused by Peyton Manning last week, which isn't much of a surprise since he can dismantle any secondary. But give credit where it's due, and the Titans have shut down most other passing attacks with Matt Schaub in Week 2 the only quarterback along with Manning to score 20 or more Fantasy points, including matchups with Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Andrew Luck twice.

Palmer did a nice job playing through his elbow injury last week against St. Louis, but he snapped a string of three games in a row with 24 or more Fantasy points and five games in a row with multiple touchdowns. With a tough matchup and a bad throwing elbow, we'd be cautious with him this week and consider other options.
