Carson Palmer has not practiced this week due to the sore arm he suffered after Monday Night match-up with the San Diego Chargers. But reports out of New York by NFL insider Ian Rapoport are good new regarding the condition of the Cardinals QB.
Palmer goes about his work professionally. Just because he hasn’t practiced this week doesn’t mean he hasn’t prepared.

If Palmer can play he should have a big day against a New York Giants secondary that got carved up by Matthew Stafford last week. The Lions were able to rack up over 400 yards in offense and the Cardinals could do the same because they have offensive weapons similar to that of Detroit.
A win today would get the Cardinals off to a quick 2-0 start which would be helpful with two key divisional match-up on the horizon.
A healthy Carson Palmer would also mean good things for Larry Ftizgerald and Micheal Floyd who have developed a rapport with their veteran signal caller.
In the event Carson Palmer is unable to go back-up Drew Stanton will get the start.
