Cardinals adding Zac Dysert to active roster

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he was more optimistic about quarterback Carson Palmer’s chances of playing against the 49ers on Thursday night, but that’s a quick turnaround for a player with a concussion and the team has moved to add another quarterback to the roster.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported during halftime of Monday night’s game between the Giants and Vikings that the Caardinals would promote quarterback Zac Dysert from the practice squad. Agent Mike McCartney also tweeted out congratulations to his client about the promotion.

Dysert signed to the Cardinals practice squad after spending the summer with the Dolphins. He’s also been a member of the Bills, Texans and Broncos since Denver drafted him in the seventh round of the 2013 draft, but has never appeared in a regular season game.

The Cardinals would likely prefer that doesn’t change on Thursday night, but Dysert would be the man behind Drew Stanton if Palmer remains in the concussion protocol.

    Might as well make him starter. He’s better than Stanton

    A really good QB during the games he played for Denver in Exhibition seasons. Wish we still had him. If needed, he will do well for the Cards.

    Absolutely ludicrous to even consider playing someone concussed on a Sunday on the following Thursday. Truthfully, ludicrous to play them within the next month or two or more. Put it this way. When I was badly concussed the neurologist forbade me to do anything that had significant risk of concussion for TWO YEARS. The risks of reinjury and making symptoms permanent is just too high. The brain becomes “brittle”, akin to scar tissue, and bruises easily.

    So that’s what you do if health is the primary motivator here…. obviously it is not.

    So injured quarterbacks don’t just put up 300 down there? Hmm that seems weird. Things are rough in the desert. Oh well, it’s not like anybody down there cares about football unless the Cowboys are in town anyway.

    All I know is that Zac Dysert apparently was killing it in Franchise Mode of Madden ’15

    As long as he is not mesmerized by the spotlight, he will do well.
