Carson Palmer could play Thursday

Knocked out of two preseason contests with an ankle sprain, Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer could play in the September 3 preseason finale against the Colts.

According to the Associated Press, Palmer threw passes for 30 minutes in practice Monday.  Per the report, Palmer moved around without problem on his injured ankle.

Of course, we knew that Palmer was fine as of Sunday night.  Because new unofficial PFT correspondent receiver Chad Ochocinco told us, Twitter style.

Coach Marvin Lewis said an appearance from Palmer against the Colts is possible, even though starters rarely participate in meaningful fashion in the final preseason game.

Bottom line?  If Palmer can stay healthy this year, the Bengals could be a dangerous team.

    With a motivated Ocho, a well-behaved Chris Henry, newly acquired Laveranues Coles, and a reasonable performance from Cedric Benson, Palmer could easily return to top 5 status. He HAS to stay healthy and get good protection from the O-line, though. Otherwise, he’s get injured again and the Bengals season is done.

    Watch for Chris Henry to emerge as an elite receiver in the NFL this year. The big question for these Bengals is the O-Line. They have the talent but don’t have the experience as a Unit. The O-Line should hit its stride by the 4th or 5th game once Andre Smith is installed as a starter at RT.

    The Bengals have an excellent defensive front 4 rotation and 3 excellent linebackers not counting Rey Malaluga. Then they have two recent first round picks at the corners and very good safeties. The D should be there to keep their O on the field more than at any time in the Marvin era. The question is can that make shift Oline pass block better than last years WORST IN THE NFL Oline?

    When you let all of those writers go after your NBC move, did you release your proofreader?
    Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.

    Even when Palmer was healthy this team still stunk it up. No one fears the Bengals. Even the BROWNS have a leg up on them.
    SYNTAX CORRECTION- “Bottom line: If Palmer can stay healthy, the Bengals could be a dangerous team this year. “
