Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer out this week

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has gone back and forth this week, but he just made it official.

Quarterback Carson Palmer won’t play this week because of a concussion, and isn’t making the trip to San Francisco, per Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.

Palmer suffered a concussion in last week’s loss to the Rams, and has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist.

That leaves Drew Stanton at the helm Thursday night against the 49ers, in a matchup of 1-3. They promoted Zac Dysert from the practice squad so they’d have an active backup to Stanton.

    Stick a fork in the Cardinals, they’re done!

  2. danceformemarionetteboy says: Oct 5, 2016 2:36 PM

    It was a good run Cards.

    Back to reality.

  3. swortybounce says: Oct 5, 2016 2:37 PM

    If Stanton lights it up, Palmer may still be suffering concussion symptoms for the following game.

  4. jackedupboonie says: Oct 5, 2016 2:42 PM

    When teams really don’t do much on field work til Wednesdays….but the league has Thursday games. Smh

  5. ctiggs says: Oct 5, 2016 2:45 PM

    So we have Stanton Vs 3rd and 4 pass for 2? 49ers need to start Kap now.

  6. getonyourkneeskissthefiverings says: Oct 5, 2016 2:46 PM

    The Niners will put an official end to their season.

  7. ctiggs says: Oct 5, 2016 2:48 PM

    We (the 49ers) are the most popular team in the league, but since we are not playing to our fully capabilities the ratings will be done again this week.

  8. mongo3401 says: Oct 5, 2016 2:49 PM

    I think Buffalo out an official end to their season.

  9. mandings36 says: Oct 5, 2016 2:49 PM

    ****flushing sound****

  10. hawksfansince77 says: Oct 5, 2016 2:51 PM

    But BA is the second coming of Lombardi….so it will be fine.

  11. djvh2 says: Oct 5, 2016 2:51 PM

    When the ratings are down again, is it because Palmer is out making the game uninteresting or because of Kaepernick? It’ll be the same reason as before, but now the media has another excuse for it.

  12. minson15 says: Oct 5, 2016 2:52 PM

    Can’t wait for the Cardinals and 49ers to end in a tie because neither team is good enough to win a game.

  13. pittsburghdamned says: Oct 5, 2016 2:53 PM

    Good thing Arizona is a sad retirement home. Palmer will have lots of shuffleboard and bingo nights to look forward to.

  14. jackedupboonie says: Oct 5, 2016 2:55 PM

    Can you atleast do away with the San Fran reference….they no longer play anywhere near that city. It’s 50 miles away, in Santa Clara.

  15. stipez says: Oct 5, 2016 2:57 PM

    Stand up shuffleboard is the bomb, you watch your mouth.

  16. spotsdad says: Oct 5, 2016 3:07 PM

    Karma for negative Brady comments, and yes, it is always all about the Patriots, so deal with it.

  17. guadalahonky says: Oct 5, 2016 3:09 PM

    Thursday Night Football sucks regardless, but it’s Drew Stanton vs. Blaine Gabbert?

    And people are wondering why ratings are down?

  18. NFLexpert says: Oct 5, 2016 3:13 PM

    Cards need to move back to St. Louis where they belong. Whoever heard of a Cardinal in the desert?

  19. rcali says: Oct 5, 2016 3:18 PM

    This is yet another night where I catch up on my DVR. Happening a lot lately with the NFL.

  20. profootball13 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:20 PM

    San Francisco……I am not familiar with a team IN San Francisco……….huh…..

  21. ndnphx says: Oct 5, 2016 3:21 PM

    The Cardinals will go as far as Palmer will take them. Which now is officially nowhere.

  22. sameer1138 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:22 PM

    Sadly, I think my Niners are still the underdogs😦 Never fear, Captain Checkdown will lead us to 200 yards of total offense, while going 3-of-10 on third down.

  23. jmethane says: Oct 5, 2016 3:22 PM

    Could Drew Stanton play any worse than Carson Palmer has the last 4 weeks. I don’t think so this might not be that huge downgrade.

    Stanton might actually play better because Carson was horrible. Either way the cards are completely done.

    Go Hawks!

  24. profootball13 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:30 PM

    Arizona’s QB plan……Do the exact same thing that previously failed miserably, and expect a different result…..smh…..

  25. mongo3401 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:30 PM

    Actually the Sonoran desert , Arizona, has one of the largest cardinal populations in the country.

    In regard to the 9 ers no longer being in SF. The Jets and Giants don’t gen play in the state they are advertised

  26. chicagosportsfan11 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:32 PM

    Still have the Cards beating the one dimensional 49ers 24-14.

  27. fwippel says: Oct 5, 2016 3:41 PM

    Too bad we won’t be able to find out if Palmer could have been ready by Sunday.

    Of course, it’s more important for the NFL Network to showcase itself with live football games than it is to actually protect the safety of the players, and preserve the integrity of the game.

    This is why people laugh at Roger Goodell every time he talks about how important player safety is.

    You mean like the New Jersey Giants and Jets?

  29. ariani1985 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:45 PM

    since most seahawk fans are new to the NFL these cardinals are in your division.

  30. imodan says: Oct 5, 2016 3:46 PM

    Some may argue Carson hasn’t showed up the last 4 weeks. His psyche is shot from his last game from last year.

    ————————————–
    It’s the distance. Jets and Giants aren’t 50 freaking miles from New York. They are 11 give or take. You can be in a high rise, and see the stadium from NYC. Which is a 15-20 minute drive not over an hour.

  32. therealtrenches says: Oct 5, 2016 3:48 PM

    Arians is unable to devise game plans that might protect his QB. And this is the result. And this is where the coach’s arrogance becomes crippling.

  33. tb12x4 says: Oct 5, 2016 3:53 PM

    karma for doggin’ brady

    Bridgewater for a 1st. Bank on it….

  35. schmitty2 says: Oct 5, 2016 4:06 PM

    If there ever was any doubt how lame some of the comments are on PFT look no further than this article. The article is about a QB not playing in a game and yet it has turned into a stadium geography and bird habitat pissing match.

  36. dwoofer says: Oct 5, 2016 4:10 PM

    Cards #1 draft pick not holding up the right side of the line for Carson. Not good.

  37. oreo51 says: Oct 5, 2016 4:10 PM

    Carson Palmer should get his bathrobe and slippers and join Peyton Manning on the couch.

  38. fumblenuts says: Oct 5, 2016 4:21 PM

    The big bell ringers are A LOT harder to come back from the older you get……..

  39. silvernblackpride says: Oct 5, 2016 4:28 PM

    Carson your opponent this week is old age ….you cant scramble with a wheelchair . I’m a happy Raider fan he’s long gone.

    This should tell you how much anyone cares about whether a washed up QB plays tomorrow.

    The question is:
    Will Jed York realize how terrible the 49ers roster is when Drew freakin Stanton beats the niners?

    Jed you mutually parted the wrong guy

  43. idiedpretty says: Oct 5, 2016 5:03 PM

    Palmer has been a turnover machine all season. No big loss here.

  44. draculalambert says: Oct 5, 2016 5:12 PM

    this is shaping up to be a very different year for the cardinals than last year,,,,,palmer may be finished anyway.

  45. bert1913 says: Oct 5, 2016 5:41 PM

    at least the cardinals aren’t waiting until the end of the season to implode

  46. skawh says: Oct 5, 2016 6:29 PM

    Least Carson can hold his head high for not being a proven CHEATER! Brady can’t say that

  47. ChickenTurkeySaurus says: Oct 5, 2016 6:49 PM

    Cardinals haters should know that Drew Stanton went 5-3 the last time Carson went out because of injury. They should also know that Seattle is still in second place, just like they’ve been for the past year and a half.

    And if you are rooting for the Cards to fail, that’s pretty shortsighted. After all, the worse record they have the better the QB they will draft.

    ——————————————————–
    You do realize Palmer played for Pete Carroll don’t you? A.K.A get out of Dodge before the sheriff rides in and takes back his national championships.
    Brady can hold his head high as a four time SB winning QB, 3 time SB MVP, the one and only QB to lead his team to 6 SB’s and the victim of a shameless frame job that failed miserably yet because in the NFL fair and right don’t count because the commissioner can do whatever the heck he wants. Carson can claim to be the second coming of the biggest choke artist in NFL playoff history. No need to name names, we all know who he is.

    _________________

    The only thing the NFL proved was that the language in the CBA trumps neutral scientific evidence and their own commissioner’s blatant lies and that they would go to any lengths to secure the legal precedent that case gave them. Knowing what we all know now assailing Brady is just a cheap salve to the wound of your team not repeating. It won’t help. No amount of venom changes the fact that your team lost the SB to them little 12. Try to have a little class.

    Just a little perspective from a fan of a team that has beaten New England in the SB, twice.

    ================================
    Sure. As soon as we dump that silly New York reference for the Jets and Giants, the Dallas reference for the Cowboys and the Los Angeles reference for the future Inglewood Rams. 🙂

  52. jag1959 says: Oct 5, 2016 7:36 PM

    So we can avoid having them all pointed out individually here are the ‘misnamed’ teams matched with their real locations:

    Orchard Park Bills
    East Rutherford Jets
    Miami Gardens Dolphin
    East Rutherford Giants
    Arlington Cowboys
    Landover Redskins
    Santa Clara 49ers
    And coming soon the Inglewood Rams

    For the nitpickers, save it. Glendale is in AZ, Nashville is in TN, Minneapolis is in MN, Charlotte is in one of the Carolinas and Foxboro is in New England

    ______

    Not just from his last game, but from his last 2 games of last year. The final regular season game, Seattle went into AZ and laid an absolute smack down on the Cards. It was 30-6 at half time when they pulled Palmer because they knew they had no shot of coming back. They followed that up by laying an egg in Carolina and have looked pretty bad overall since.

    It’s still early though. The Seahawks started the year 2-4 last year and looked pretty bad. Then won 8 of the last 10 with most of those wins being blowouts. The Cards have talent, but until Arians can learn some humility, stop being a blowhard and doing things like publicly throwing his players under the bus, they’ll probably continue to look like a mess.
