Cards QB Drew Stanton is recovering from a concussion and the nerve issue in Carson Palmer’s shoulder has yet to fully resolve itself, leaving the team with rookie Logan Thomas as their only healthy quarterback. On Monday, coach Bruce Arians said that the team expects one of the veterans to be healthy enough to start this week even if he isn’t sure which one it will be.
“We feel like one of those two will be back,” Arians said, via the Arizona Republic. “If not, then obviously we have to move on to door Number 2 and get somebody in to back up Logan Thomas.”
The story went on to say that Palmer spent the weekend in Denver seeing a specialist and thinks they may have found something to solve the problem of his shoulder. The story added that he still needs to go through a full practice before Arians will give him the green light to play in a game. There’s no guarantee that will happen given the nature of the injury. It's a very nice matchup against the Redskins defense.
