Cardinals GM Steve Keim won't rule out Carson Palmer for OTAs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Keim noted that Palmer, who underwent surgery in November, is ahead of schedule on his rehab from a torn ACL. Coach Bruce Arians specifically indicated that he's three-to-four weeks ahead of his timetable on Thursday.

The Cardinals went 6-0 with Palmer under center last season. He threw for 1,626 yards and 11 touchdowns before suffering a season-ending injury just days after signing a contract extension with the team. He is due a $9.5 million roster bonus if he is still on the roster by March 12.

Palmer tore his ACL just days after signing a contract extension with the team.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Palmer, who signed a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total just two days before sustaining another season-ending injury, is expected to have a long road back in his rehabilitation process. He is targeting a return at some point near the end of Arizona's OTAs in June.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

He is expected to undergo surgery in a "couple of weeks" once the swelling on his knee goes down.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer average before injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer turned in an average game before leaving with a knee injury. 

Palmer completed 25 of 36 passes, but did not toss any scores. He was picked off once and fumbled, but did not turn the ball over on the fumble. Palmer wound up leaving the game early in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. He wasn't really touched on the play, and wound up going down after trying to set his feet. He was able to walk off the field and was carted to the locker room. The fear is that Palmer tore his ACL, but that isn't confirmed at this time. 

The Cardinals will take on the Lions next week, but it's unclear if Palmer will play.

Palmer did not return, and will have more tests to determine the severity of the injury. 


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer departs early with injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer left Sunday's game against the Rams with a left knee injury.

Palmer was able to eventually walk off the field, but did so with a noticeable limp. He attempted to put weight on his leg once he reached the sideline, but that didn't go well. He was taken to the locker room on a cart a few moments later. Palmer is questionable to return due to the injury.


Carson Palmer agrees to three-year extension with Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Carson Palmer has agreed to a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Palmer was set to be a free agent after the 2014 season. He was earning a base salary of $9 million, with $1 million in roster bonus before the announcement of the extension. The team has not revealed the exact nature of his guarantees, but given his history of injuries, the contract will likely include some protections on a year-to-year basis.

Palmer was acquired by the Cardinals via trade from Oakland before the start of the 2013 season. He has led Arizona to a 7-1 record and has yet to lose a game while under center this season. He's compiled 1,385 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions in five games.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

He remains under contract with Arizona until five days after the Super Bowl. After stints with the Bengals and Raiders, he has led the Cardinals to a 7-1 record and has yet to lose a game while under center this season. He's compiled 1,385 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions in five games.

Carson Palmer comes through


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer did Fantasy Football analyst Jamey Eisenberg justice as the CBSSports.com Start of the Week for Week 9 at Dallas, throwing for three touchdowns in a game that turned out to be not so high-scoring with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sidelined by a back injury.

It was Palmer's first game with three touchdown passes but his fourth straight with at least two. Or really, his fifth straight. He also had two in Week 1 before missing the next three games with a shoulder injury.

Clearly, this offense favors him, and he has the weapons in wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to keep it up. Neither of them were even responsible for any of the touchdowns in this one, which goes to show how much of it is Palmer himself.

With a favorable matchup Week 10 against St. Louis, Palmer is looking like a must-start in Fantasy.


Carson Palmer produces first three-touchdown game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw an early pick-six Week 9 against the Cowboys, but he more than made up for it. Palmer finished 22 of 34 for 249 yards and three touchdowns, his first three-touchdown effort this season.

Palmer is up to 11 touchdowns and two turnovers in five games played.

Palmer fired two scoring throws in the second quarter, hitting tight end John Carlson from 7 yards out and wideout Jaron Brown with an 11-yard strike. Palmer's 1-yard touchdown toss to running back Andre Ellington put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter. Palmer might have thrown for 300 yards if not for several drops by his receivers.

He'll look to stay hot Week 10 against the Rams.


Carson Palmer goes over 300 yards passing for 34th time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed fewer than half his throws Week 8 against the Eagles, but he connected on two long touchdown throws to put him over 300 yards for the 34th time in his career.

Palmer finished 20 of 42 for a season-high 329 yards and two scores with no interceptions. It was his second 300-yard game in four starts this year.

Early in the third quarter, Palmer hit Larry Fitzgerald on a slant and the 31-year-old wideout took it 80 yards for a touchdown. With 90 seconds left and his team trailing 20-17, Palmer lofted a perfect over-the-shoulder throw that rookie John Brown caught for the winning 75-yard score.

Palmer has thrown two touchdown passes in each of his four starts while committing just two turnovers in those games. He'll visit the Cowboys in Week 9.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer over nerve problem


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said Wednesday that he is no longer dealing with a nerve problem in his right shoulder, the Arizona Republic reports.

"Yeah, I'm there right now," Palmer said. "I'm actually able to lift with my upper body, which I wasn't able to lift for five weeks or whatever it was. I definitely had a lot of atrophy, so I'm starting to get some strength back and put a little extra weight up top, which is good. You get sick of going into the weight room and not being able to do things. There was a month of that and it's good to be able to get back in there and do something."

Palmer missed three games earlier in the season but has performed well in the two games since returning, completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 503 yards with four touchdowns and one interception.


Cardinals' Carson Palmer tosses two touchdowns Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw two touchdowns Week 7 against the Raiders.

Palmer completed 22 of 31 attempts for 253 yards and two scores. He was consistently able to find his targets down the field, posting 8.2 yards per attempt. It wasn't all perfect, as Palmer turned the ball over once on an interception, and took one sack. For the most part, though, Palmer was solid. He was able to find Andre Ellington on shorter gains, while also hitting Michael Floyd and John Brown on longer plays. 

Palmer will look for more Week 8 against the Eagles. 


Cardinals' Carson Palmer good to go Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is active Week 7 against the Raiders.

Palmer is still dealing with a right shoulder injury. He was able to play through the issue last week, and was considered probable coming into Week 7.


Cardinals include 12 players on final injury report for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Cardinals have listed 12 players on their final injury report for Week 7 at Oakland. As expected, defensive end Calais Campbell (knee) and tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) were ruled out for Sunday.

Deemed questionable were tight end John Carlson (knee), inside linebacker Glenn Carson, defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) and defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu (illness). Meanwhile, wide receiver John Brown (hamstring), Andre Ellington (foot), wide receiver Michael Floyd (groin), outside linebacker Alex Okafor (quad), quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) and Patrick Peterson (ankle) were all labeled as probable on the report.


Palmer, Ellington, Floyd listed probable for Cardinals in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) As expected, the Cardinals will have their top three offensive stars for Week 7 against the Raiders. Quarterback Carson Palmer (right shoulder) was ruled probable for Sunday's game against his former team. Palmer returned to action last week and threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns against Washington.

Running back Andre Ellington was a limited participant in practice all week because of a lingering foot injury. Wide receiver Michael Floyd was a full participant Thursday and Friday despite dealing with a groin injury. Both players were deemed probable on the final injury report.


Cardinals receivers looking for more success


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Cardinals passing game had new life breathed into it with Carson Palmer's return, and Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will look to continue reaping the rewards Sunday at Oakland.

Both Floyd and Fitzgerald found the end zone Week 6, and they should find success again. The Raiders haven't been terrible overall against wide receivers this season but have fallen apart over the last two games. Dolphins and Chargers wideouts have averaged 26.5 Fantasy points, with three touchdowns and 379 yards combined.

The downside to this matchup? The Raiders have not been particularly competitive this season, so opposing quarterbacks don't need to put the ball in the air much. Only one team has had fewer passes attempted against it than the Raiders at 30.0 per game. Still, consider both players solid Fantasy options for Week 7, with Floyd still getting the edge. 


Carson Palmer practicing fully Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was a "full go" at Wednesday's practice, reports the team's website. Palmer's arm is not 100 percent yet but it's "more than serviceable," coach Bruce Arians said.

Palmer missed three games with a nerve problem in his throwing shoulder before returning Week 6 against Washington. He'll start Sunday at Oakland.


Carson Palmer looks healthy enough to use


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was plenty productive Week 6 against Washington, completing 28 of 44 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in a rather abrupt return from a shoulder nerve issue that caused him to miss three games.

That makes Palmer 2 for 2 in throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns this season. You'll take that in Fantasy.

Coach Bruce Arians' comments Monday make Palmer even more attractive in Fantasy. He said 44 attempts will be the norm for him with the way defenses stack the box against the Cardinals. With wide receiver Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald at his disposal, Palmer certainly has the weapons to make the most of all those throws.

He won't play mistake-free football all season -- he threw 22 interceptions last year, to put it in perspective -- but if you feel like your starting quarterback is bringing you down, he's in a situation to put up consistent numbers if his shoulder continues to feel good.

You have to like his matchup Week 7 at Oakland. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both have him in their top 12 for the contest. Though the Raiders rank a modest 11th against the pass, that's just because they're so busy getting beat by the run. They've allowed the fourth-highest passer rating of any team this season.


Bruce Arians: 44 pass attempts the 'norm'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Carson Palmer's 44 pass attempts Week 6 should be considered "the norm," reports ESPN.com.

"When we have it that many times and they stack the box like that to stop the run, then we're going to throw the football," Arians said. "When he says he's OK, we're going to go with it."

Palmer had missed the three previous games with a nerve problem in his throwing shoulder, but reportedly felt great after Sunday's win over the Redskins. Palmer threw 37 times in the season opener, his only other outing this year.

The Cardinals averaged 35.9 pass attempts last year. They ranked 10th in the league by throwing 60.5 percent of the time.
