Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (right elbow) will be questionable on the club’s injury report, but he’s expected to start Sunday’s game at Tennessee, coach Bruce Arians said today, according to multiple media outlets, including the club’s website.

The 33-year-old Palmer has been listed on the injury report with the elbow ailment in each of the last two weeks. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Palmer was exceptional in last Sunday’s win vs. the Rams, completing 27-of-32 passes for 269 yards, including a TD pass to Larry Fitzgerald.

Palmer needs 542 passing yards for 4,000 on the season. He has compiled a QB rating of 112 or higher in three of the last four games.

The 8-5 Cardinals are one game out of a wild-card spot in the NFC.

  1. Getting out of Oakland has done wonders for Palmer. Just like it does everyone else who escapes.

  2. He should rest every week. Came in with no throws all week and completed 84% in the game.

    Thankfully the entire offense is “getting” the new offensive system and INTs are way down.

  3. It sure helps when your teams top receivers are NOT chad ochojohnsoncinco (lazy clown), terrell owens (final NFL season before retirement), chris henry, darrius heyward bey (lazy.), denarius moore, and laveranues coles (final NFL season before retirement).

  4. As Cardinals fans, we would like to thank the Raiders (Carson Palmer), the Falcons (John Abraham), and the Dolphins (Karlos Dansby) for quitting on your “washed up” guys last year.

  5. In defense of the Miami Dolphins… that Karlos Dansby release was related to new head coach Philbin stating his chain of command after Long/Bush/Dansby defended chad ochojohnsoncinco’s attack on his wife (… and salary considerations).

    Little did Philbin know that Ireland’s re-signing richie incognito (BEFORE Philbin became coach) and poor leadership by O-Line coach jim turner would lead to such a low character Dolphins locker room.

    To be clear, as of right now, the Cards are 1.5 games out of a playoff spot, because the Niners hold the head-to-head over them.

    Actually one game as we hold the tie breaker against Carolina if those two teams are tied by themselves at the end of the year! Go Jets, Saints and Falcons beat those Panthers!
