As the afternoon slides toward 4:05 p.m. ET and kickoff of the Chiefs-Raiders game approaches, there’s an interesting twist to the question of whether Carson Palmer will start at quarterback for Oakland.

Colleen Dominguez of ESPN reported earlier today that the question of whether Palmer will get the nod will be resolved by Palmer himself.

The report comes after days of reports that Palmer would start, and that he wouldn’t start.

Either way, we’ll find out soon whether Palmer will play after only five days with the team — and more than nine months after he last played for the Bengals, at Baltimore.
