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