Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) advised not to have surgery

Fox Sports 910 - [Full Article]

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer visited Los Angeles-based orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins for additional information regarding the nerve issue in his shoulder. He's suffering from "axillary nerve contusion" a numbness over part of the outer shoulder, shoulder weakness, especially when lifting the arm up and away from the body. He’ll should be able to continue his current rehab with the team.

Fantasy Impact: 

It does not sound as if Palmer has much (if any) chance of playing this week, so plan on Drew Stanton getting the start. Palmer can be cut for better options on the waiver wire. Stanton's presence under center is a downgrade for the Arizona passing game, though he looked comfortable in Week 3 against the 49ers.
