Cardinals QB Carson Palmer admitted to reporters following Sunday’s game that he was never close playing, despite the fact that HC Bruce Arians said he had made progress in recent days.
As far as Palmer’s timetable for a return, the veteran quarterback said it’s hard to pinpoint a return date given that he’s dealing with a nerve issue in his shoulder.
“They said my shoulder was stretched out and I landed on the nerve, shut the nerve down,” Palmer said, via Kent Somers of AzCentral.com. “It’s just one of those things you’ve just go to wait and hope it wakes up. There’s no, ‘it needs 48 hours. It needs six days, it needs 12 days. You just don’t know.”
Drew Stanton was able to step in a lead the Cardinals to a road win as he completed 14 of 29 for 167 yards, but didn’t throw a touchdown.
At this point in time, it appears as though the Cardinals will continue to prepare Stanton to be their starter in Week 3 and continue to evaluate the progress of Palmer in the coming days.
We’ll have more updates as the news is available.
