Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald sit out Wednesday


The Cardinals began on-field work for their important Week 16 game at Seattle without starting quarterback Carson Palmer (ankle) and top wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) on the practice field.

Palmer and Fitzgerald were among four Cardinals starters to sit out on Wednesday, with tight end Rob Housler (groin) and free safety Rashad Johnson (ankle) the others. However, according to Kyle Odegard of, Palmer has indicated he should be ready for Sunday’s game at CenturyLink Field. Also, coach Bruce Arians has said Fitzgerald is also expected to be available.

Palmer has been on the injury report the last three weeks with a right elbow ailment, but he was listed no worse than a limited practice participant in that span. He suffered the ankle injury in Sunday’s win at Tennessee, a game in which Fitzgerald was also injured.

Wideout Michael Floyd (ankle), running back Andre Ellington (thigh) and safety Justin Bethel (wrist) were all limited with injuries on Wednesday.

The 9-5 Cardinals are one game out of the final wild-card spot in the NFC.

    They aren’t as young as they used to be.

    I predict Carson Palmer starts but does not finish the game. Hope Larry is ok and keeps an eye out for Kam Chancellor. Biggest hitter in the game today.

    Man it would be nice if my Cards could pull off this win in Seattle. It would be one hell of an upset. I think it’s a long shot, but I’m not ready to give up on them like the media has…

    The hawks wont lose this game… Had they beat San Fran a couple of weeks ago they may have let this one go just to keep the whiners out of the playoffs. Since that didnt happen they are going to be playing like there is no tomorrow just to lock up the west.

    As a side note though I would have much rather seen the cards in the playoffs over SF.
