Cardinals QB Carson Palmer told reporters on Wednesday that he is planning to be back in the lineup for Arizona’s Week 5 match up against the Denver Broncos.
“It felt great,” Palmer said, via AzCardinals.com. “It’s a slow process. Every day I’m going to throw a little more, a little more. The plan is to be firing on all cylinders at least by Wednesday of next week.
“If I can’t (play) Drew is more than ready, he’s proved that. But (Denver) is part of the timetable and I expect to get ready.”
Palmer has been able to do more and more in practice and appears to be making decent progress in his recovery from a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder.
Backup QB Drew Stanton has been solid in relief of Palmer as he has led them to a road win over the Giants and a home victory against the 49ers in Week 3.
On the season, Stanton has completed 51.6 percent of his passes for 411 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
We’ll have more updates regarding Palmer as the news is available.
