Cardinals: Carson Palmer will be cut, not cut in by Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is not going to be cut during the regular season.

He is, however, expected to miss at least a week of practice and games with a sore right shoulder, coach Bruce Arians said Thursday.

Palmer, who had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Dec. 14, is expected to undergo a full recovery and will be eligible to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

“We’ll see where we go with it,” Arians told reporters.

“He’s going to miss some practice and some games, but he’s going [to be] ready to go when the season starts.”

Palmer is coming off an 11-game winning streak.

He threw for 4,845 yards, 35 touchdowns and 10 interceptions during the Cardinals’ 13-3 run in the NFC West.

Arizona is hoping that the return of the quarterback and the return to full health will give the team a boost heading into the second half of the season.

Palmer had been dealing with an ankle injury for the past few weeks.

He said Thursday that the injury is a “work in progress” and he plans to return in the fall.

“I’ve been working on it every day.

We’ll see what happens,” Palmer said.

“It was just a work in progress.

I was feeling better but still getting it.

I don’t know if it’s something else, just a little bit sore.”
