The Arizona Cardinals are expecting QB Carson Palmer to start on Sunday’s game against Washington, according to both ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
This is doubly good news for the Cardinals, who did not have medical clearance for either Palmer or backup QB Drew Stanton following last Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos. Stanton, who had started the previous 3 games for the Cardinals and has a 2-1 record on the season, suffered a concussion during the game and could not finish it, leaving rookie QB Logan Thomas to face the wrath of the Denver defense.
Palmer, who led the Cardinals to a 10-6 record in 2013 – their first winning record since 2009 – started the season 1-0 but suffered a nerve injury that put him on the shelf for an entire month.
