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.

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.

Report: Carson Palmer set to sit Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has been ruled out for the Week 2 game against the host Giants with a shoulder injury, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport has reported. Palmer tested the shoulder before the game and was declared a no-go.

His absence thrusts Drew Stanton into the starting role. Stanton has not thrown a pass in the NFL since 2010 with Detroit.


Report: Carson Palmer '50-50 at best' to play


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) A source said Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is "50-50 at best" to play at the Giants on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. Palmer hasn't thrown a pass since Monday as he deals with a "nerve thing" in his shoulder. Coach Bruce Arians expressed optimism in Palmer's availability according to the Arizona Republic

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 limited due to shoulder


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was limited Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.

Palmer ran more often than usual Monday, and wound up taking a couple hits during those plays. Despite that, he didn't seem hindered during the contest, so the limited practice comes as a bit of a surprise. If Palmer can show improvement throughout the week, he should be good to go.


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 goes over 300 yards for 33rd time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer overcame a slow start Monday night and surpassed 300 passing yards for the 33rd time in his career. Palmer completed 24 of 37 throws for 304 yards, including a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns, in an 18-17 comeback win over the Chargers.

He also ran three times for 30 yards after not rushing for more than 9 yards in any game last season. In fact, Palmer, 34, never had run for 30 yards in any career game. He did lose a fumble on a blindside hit from linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu.

Palmer scrambled to buy time on his first scoring pass, a 5-yarder to running back Stepfan Taylor with 12:30 remaining. Palmer then led a 91-yard touchdown drive to put Arizona ahead for good, capping it with a 13-yard slip screen to rookie wideout John Brown.

Palmer targeted Michael Floyd a team-high seven times and connected only once with Larry Fitzgerald. Palmer will try to get Fitzgerald more involved when Arizona visits the Giants in Week 2.


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 leads touchdown drive vs. Vikings


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer went 4 for 8 for 91 yards and gained eight yards on one rush in Saturday's 30-28 preseason loss to the Vikings.

Palmer did major damage on the team's first offensive drive, leading the Cardinals 93 yards on nine plays that included a 20-yard strike to Larry Fitzgerald, a 51-yard catch-and-run by Jaron Brown and a 16-yard toss to running back Andre Ellington. Palmer played just one more series before giving way to the second stringer. He's been able to move the ball in two straight preseason games, and he'll look to make it three straight in the offense's dry run for the regular season next week against the Bengals, the team that drafted him.


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 happy with offseason work


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is pleased with how the offense looks heading into training camp, reports ESPN.

"I'm extremely happy with where we are," Palmer said. "We have a long way to go. I couldn't be happier to see the growth from the film we watched this offseason of us playing in games, and to see where we are now and to see the future's bright because you see mistakes made and you see the potential of the scheme, the potential of these plays."


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."


Logan Thomas goes to the Cardinals in fourth round


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the 120th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected quarterback Logan Thomas from Virginia Tech.

Thomas, the sixth quarterback taken in the draft, looked sharp at the Senior Bowl, which helped his draft stock. Standing at 6-foot-6, 248 pounds, Thomas passed for 2,907 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2013. He also rushed for 344 yards with four touchdowns.

Thomas will likely compete with Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley on the depth chart, behind veteran Carson Palmer.

Carson Palmer OK if Cardinals draft quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer would be OK if the team drafted a quarterback in the NFL Draft, reports the team's official website.

Palmer, 34, said if the team drafts a quarterback it would make sense.

"If you are in a position to draft the best player on your board, and that's the best position to be in as an organization, and (a quarterback) is the best player on the board, you are not only making your team better by creating competition but you are helping out the future," Palmer said. "I know I'm not going to play forever. It’s hard for us players to admit that. The older you get the harder it is to admit it. You don't see it happening. You still feel good, you still feel confident, you still feel healthy. But that's the reality. That's the business. It doesn't matter how you feel about it, whether it irks you or you don't care. That’s the game."

Palmer is coming off a solid season in 2013. He threw for a career-high 4,274 yards with 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.


Arians expecting 'big jump' for Carson Palmer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/31/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects quarterback Carson Palmer to continue playing at a high level in 2014.

Arians said Palmer, 34, still "has more than a couple of years left" playing at a high level.

"I have not seen a drop-off skill wise since the Cincinnati days," Arians said in an interview with CBSSports.com at the NFL owners meeting. "He still throws it as efficiently, and his deep ball is one of the best I've ever seen. He works out like a maniac. His body is in great shape. If anything, I'm expecting a big jump this year because of the second year in the offense. He's got it now. The rest of the guys around him now have got it. We're adding some things with Andre Ellington and some stuff. It's harder to take a vet and school him than to brainwash a rookie. It took a while for that learning process to take place."

Palmer passed for 4,274 yards, 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions in his first year playing for Arians in 2013.


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.
