This will be Carson Palmer’s first game back since tearing his ACL last season against the Rams. Palmer was putting up good numbers as he held the Cardinals atop the monstrous NFC West early on in the season.

While Drew Stanton held the fort down pretty well for the Cardinals who went on to enter the playoffs, there’s no doubt the Cardinals would’ve been scarier contenders with a healthy Carson Palmer.

Although the team has stated that Palmer will only be in for one series, it will still be exciting to see him back out there healthy, and it’s no doubt a good call to not risk injury by keeping him in any longer than needed.
