Carson Palmer

Similar to Mathieu, Carson Palmer is coming off an ACL injury that occurred last season. In his first game back Palmer was 4-for-4 for 77 yards and one touchdown, in the Cardinals loss to Kansas City.

Palmer has look awesome in both training camp and the one preseason game. He has been cleared just before training camp for full contact and has been performing well. He has been able to take occasional days off, but with the season quickly approaching it will be important to see Palmers durability moving forward.

Fans should look for Palmer and the rest of the first team offense to play all of the first quarter. The coaches will be looking for Palmer to have sustained success throughout the first quarter and they prepare for their week one match up against the New Orleans Saints.
