To no one's surprise, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) will not play against the San Francisco 49ers in Glendale on Sunday.
The veteran signal-caller has been dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder and was very limited in practice this week. That means backup quarterback Drew Stanton will once again get the nod under center.
Stanton started his first game since 2010 last Sunday against the New York Giants and managed the game well. Although he threw for only 169 yards and no touchdowns, the Michigan State product did not throw any interceptions and showed solid poise in the pocket.
It looks likely that rookie Logan Thomas will be Stanton's backup.
Elsewhere, halfback Andre Ellington (foot) will start and center Lyle Sendlein (ankle) is listed as probable. Linebackers Kevin Minter (quadriceps) and Larry Foote (shoulder) are both listed as probable for Sunday's contest.
Punter Dave Zastudil (groin) and linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh) have been ruled out of the 49ers game.Read more... Join the Conversation...
