It looks like quarterback Carson Palmer’s absence from the Cardinals lineup will be a one-week state of affairs.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday that the expectation is that Palmer will be cleared from the concussion protocol well ahead of their Week Six game against the Jets. The last step in the protocol is for Palmer to go through a full practice without a recurrence of any symptoms of the concussion he suffered against the Rams in Week Four.

“He looks great,” Arians said, via

In a further sign that the team is confident about having Palmer back in the lineup, they waived quarterback Zac Dysert on Monday. Dysert was promoted from the practice squad to serve as a backup to Drew Stanton.

The Cardinals started Stanton against the 49ers last Thursday in a 33-21 win that snapped a two-game losing streak and leaves their record at 2-3 heading into the meeting with the 1-4 Jets.

    Just in time for Wilkerson and company!! Both starting guards injured and Palmer coming off concussion?? This may not end well for Big Red

    The Cardinals window has closed. Palmer is done, and they have no viable alternative to go to. Maybe they still have Kevin Kolb’s phone number? (PS – about 3 years ago I bought an official NFL Cardinals ‘Kolb’ jersey at Marshall’s here in Phoenix for $4.95. Too bad the Cards weren’t able to sign him for that.)

    PPS – the ‘Kolb’ jersey goes nicely with the ‘Leinart’ jersey I previously bought at the same Marshall’s for $7.50

    Did they sell out of Max Hall and Jon Skelton jerseys?

    The money shot is the Ryan Lindley jersey.
