Jason La Canfora reports that the Cardinals are in the process of mulling over their options at quarterback following the loss of starting QB Carson Palmer, who appears to have suffered a major knee injury.
Multiple reports indicated that Palmer’s 2014 season is almost certainly over after he went down with a non-contact knee injury on Sunday.
La Canfora mentions that one possibility for the Cardinals is to re-sign QB Dennis Dixon, who was with the team just a few weeks ago while Palmer was dealing with a nerve issue in his shoulder.
Drew Stanton will obviously be their starting quarterback for the foreseeable, but it wouldn’t hurt to add some depth at the position in the coming days.
Dixon, 29, was signed to the team’s practice squad back in October, but he lasted just a few days with the team before he was eventually released.
Dixon is a former fifth-round pick of the Steelers who has bounced around a bit since entering the league. Bruce Arians actually spent time with Dixon while in Pittsburgh, so there is some familiarity with what he brings to the table.
He last appeared in an NFL game during the 2010 season.
