News: Palmer has no timetable for a return, placing his availability Sunday against the 49ers in question, the Cardinals' official site reports. Regarding the nerve issue in his shoulder, he said, "I wish I had a concrete answer or somebody knew exactly what to do to wake it up, but that's not known. It's just time. The only answer is time, and I'm hoping it doesn't take any more time." Impact: Palmer hopes to play in Week 3, but his availability is tied to the nerves in his right shoulder waking up. Meanwhile, his practice participation Wednesday was limited to footwork drills with backup quarterbacks Drew Stanton and Logan Thomas, as he has yet to throw since attempting to do so before Sunday's eventual win against the Giants. Expect Stanton to get the nod once again in Week 3, unless Palmer's recovery efforts finally allow him to throw effectively.(RotoWire, )

News: Palmer's fate for Sunday's game against the 49ers is contingent upon how quickly his shoulder improves, the Cardinals' official site reports. "I just have to stay on the rehab and hope [the nerve] wakes up," he said. Impact: According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Palmer's shoulder wasn't close to healthy enough to allow him to take the field Sunday in New York. With an undetermined return date, the schedule lines up nicely for Palmer to rest in Week 3, as the Cardinals' bye week immediately follows the upcoming divisional showdown with San Francisco. If he takes a seat, Drew Stanton will again be under center, after a performance versus the Giants in which he limited his mistakes (zero turnovers and four sacks taken) en route to 14-of-29 passing for 167 yards and no touchdowns.(RotoWire, )

News: Palmer says he's tried everything under the sun to try to heal his ailing right shoulder. But whether it responds to any of the treatment in time for him to play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers remains to be seen. Impact: Palmer injured a nerve when he collided with San Diego's Eric Weddle and fell to the ground in Arizona's season-opening win over the Chargers. He missed last Sunday's 25-14 road victory over the New York Giants.(STATS, 10:44am)
Sep 14, 2014
News: Palmer (shoulder) is inactive Sunday versus the Giants at New York, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Impact: After testing out his right shoulder in pregame warmups, Palmer was unable to fill his typical role effectively, thereby yielding snaps under center to Drew Stanton. Stanton will make his fifth career start, but first since Dec. 19, 2010 with the Lions.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Palmer (shoulder) will reportedly not play Sunday versus the Giants at New York, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Impact: A 50-50 proposition to take the field due to "nerve issues" in his right shoulder, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix, Palmer is expected to uphold his standard of no throwing this week by donning a headset and clipboard. If Palmer is indeed inactive, which will be confirmed in advance of Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff, Drew Stanton will helm the Cardinals' offense in Week 2.(RotoWire, )

News: The Cardinals expect Palmer (shoulder) to play Sunday against the Giants, assuming his arm responds well pre-game, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: Meanwhile, ESPN's Adam Schefter suggests that the QB may be more in the "50-50" range. In any case, we'll have confirmation of the status of Palmer, who is backed up by Drew Stanton, one way or the other, in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.(RotoWire, )

News: Palmer (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Impact: Palmer was listed as a limited practice participant all week, but he didn't throw the ball in front of media. He seems like he might be a game-time call for Sunday, which is a bit concerning for the stock of Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Palmer (shoulder) didn't throw in the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Palmer's right throwing arm is ailing, after a 24-for-27, 304-yard performance Monday against the Chargers. His true activity level won't be known until drills conclude, but his ultimate status for Week 2 against the Giants in New York may not emerge until the release of Friday's injury report.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Palmer (shoulder) was again a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Impact: Despite failing to throw, at least in the media portion of practice, Palmer was able to fit in some reps for a second day in a row. There's been no indication that his Week 2 availability is in jeopardy, but he's slated to face a juicy matchup against a Giants secondary that yielded 346 yards and two touchdown strikes to the Lions' Matthew Stafford on Monday. Expect clarification on Palmer's status before the week concludes.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: Palmer was limited in practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Impact: In Monday's opener, Palmer completed throws to 11 different receivers en route to 24-for-37 passing for 304 yard and two touchdowns. Moreover, he was sacked twice in the contest, but the Chargers otherwise failed to tally a QB hit. As a result, it's unclear when he suffered the injury, or its severity, so be sure to keep a close eye on his practice participation as the week goes on.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Palmer finished with 304 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's victory over San Diego, capping his performance with a scoring pass with 2:25 left to finish an 11-play, 91-yard drive. Impact: Palmer seems to be a nice fit for Arizona's pass-heavy offense and should be considered for a starting spot in your lineup each week.(STATS, 5:17pm)
