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.


Cardinals' Carson Palmer feels good Monday after return to lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer was feeling good Monday after attempting 44 passes during a win Sunday against the Redskins. Palmer returned to the lineup Week 6 after missing three games due to a shoulder injury.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer tosses two TDs in victorious return


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed 28 of his 44 attempts for 250 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 30-20 win over Washington in Week 6.

Palmer showed a lack of arm strength in his first game since Week 1 due to a shoulder injury, averaging only 5.7 yards per attempt, but unlike the opposing quarterback, he was able to play mistake-free football while leading the team to a win and sole possession of first place in the NFC West. Provided he comes out of Sunday's win healthy, Palmer is set up for a nice matchup in Week 7, when the Cardinals head to Oakland.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer active, set to start vs. Redskins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) is active and slated to start Sunday against the Redskins.

Palmer will be seeing his first action since Week 1, when he threw for 304 yards and two touchdowns while completing 64.9 percent of his passes in a win over the Chargers. Drew Stanton (concussion) is also active and will return to a backup role. Third quarterback Logan Thomas is active as well.

Cardinals Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton questionable Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Cardinals quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton are questionable heading into Week 6.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals mum on Carson Palmer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Cardinals did not issue an official update on quarterback Carson Palmer Thursday.

Palmer was able to do some light throwing during practice, but his status was addressed following the outing. Palmer's been dealing with a nerve issue in his shoulder, though he seemed to be inching closer to a return. He's definitely made progress, but it's unclear if he'll be available Week 6.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer showing 'pretty significant' improvement


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is showing significant improvement in his right throwing shoulder, according to the consultant who is working with the veteran quarterback. Greg Roskopf, the founder and CEO of Muscle Activation Techniques, told ESPN he worked with Palmer over the weekend and said there was "pretty significant" improvement to the nerve injured he injured in the season opener.

Even though Palmer threw Wednesday, his status for Week 6 against the Redskins remains up in the air. He will meet with Roskopf Friday to undergo another evaluation. Roskopf said he used a palpation technique to stimulate the sensory receptors in Palmer's shoulder.

"It's woken up," Roskopf said. "It has to wake up and stay awake. It's a very delicate line. If he exceeds his tolerance level at the time, then it almost puts it back to sleep. It shuts it down again.

"If he doesn't have any setbacks through the week, I think he's on his way. I never know how well somebody's doing until they throw themselves into the fire. He left doing so much better."


Cards QB Carson Palmer throws; shoulder questions remain


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cardinals QB Carson Palmer practiced Wednesday, with the club hopeful he can return from an nerve injury in his right (throwing) shoulder, which has kept him out the past three games.

He threw at Wednesday's workout, but there are questions about whether he can go Sunday vs. Washington.

AzCardinals.com reported the club hopes he can practice fully Thursday or Friday. At the same time, Palmer said he will likely fly back to Denver on Friday afternoon to revisit the MAT (Muscle Activation Technique) work he was put through when he went there last weekend.

That would not preclude Palmer from playing, the team site reported. But it speaks to the uncertainty he and the team is going through with his injury.

“I just have to be able to throw a ball,” Palmer said. “Let loose and throw it hard. That’s basically it.”

Logan Thomas, who relieved injured backup Drew Stanton last Sunday at Denver, took the first team snaps Wednesday. Stanton also practiced Wednesday.


Cardinals QBs Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton expected to practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Cardinals quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton are expected to be limited participants in Wednesday's practice, according to the team's official website.

Palmer is expected to do some throwing and could be healthy enough to return Week 6 against the Redskins. Stanton has not been medically cleared from a concussion, but can still do some throwing on Wednesday, according to the site.

If both quarterbacks can't play Sunday, the team will likely turn to Logan Thomas for the start against Washington.


Bruce Arians: Carson Palmer threw Tuesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer did some throwing Tuesday, and Wednesday will be a critical day as the staff evaluates his progress, coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio. Palmer has missed three straight games with a bruised nerve in his shoulder.

If all goes well, Palmer could practice Thursday or Friday, Arians added. Arizona hosts Washington on Sunday.


Austin Davis, Carson Palmer the best of a bad waiver-wire crop


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Jamey Eisenberg isn't thrilled about the crop of quarterbacks available for pickup ahead of Week 6, as he notes in his Waiver-Wire column Tuesday.

Eisenberg considers Rams quarterback Austin Davis the best of the bunch for Week 6's matchup against the 49ers, coming off consecutive three-touchdown, 300-yard games. It is not a great matchup for Davis, considering the 49ers have allowed just 20 Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks over the last two games, but Davis is playing well enough that he may be able to overcome that.

If you don't need a quarterback too badly for this week, Carson Palmer remains a fine long-term option, and is still available in 35 percent of leagues. Palmer might still be forced to sit out Week 6 as he continues to deal with a shoulder nerve issue, but the team appears optimistic about his chances for returning before long. 


Cards coach feels Carson Palmer or Drew Stanton might play Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday he feels either quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) or quarterback Drew Stanton (concussion) will be available Week 6 vs. Washington. Arians won't know until Wednesday, but if both players are out, then Logan Thomas will start Sunday.

Palmer has missed the last three games, while Stanton was injured Sunday against the Broncos.

Report: Cardinals Carson Palmer shouldn't miss entire season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer should be able to return from his recent shoulder issue.
