Carson Palmer QB ARI 1 Day
Carson Palmer (elbow) confirmed to NFL Network's Mike Silver via text message that he'll play Sunday against the Rams.
Asked whether he's good to go, Palmer replied, "Yessir." Palmer hurt his right (throwing) elbow last Sunday against the Eagles and was limited in practice all week. He has a tasty matchup against the Rams this week. But at less than 100 percent, he's hard to trust. Palmer is our No. 17 quarterback for Week 14.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Carson Palmer (elbow, questionable) took all the snaps at Saturday's walkthrough and is expected to start in Week 14 against the Rams.
Palmer was limited in practice all week with an elbow injury, but is on track to play Sunday in a must-win game for Arizona. Despite his recent hot streak, he won't be a recommended streaming option in standard fantasy leagues at less than 100 percent. Palmer is averaging 345 passing yards and has seven touchdowns over his last three games. Rotoworld ranks him as the No. 17 quarterback for Week 14.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters Friday he's "confident" Carson Palmer (elbow, questionable" will play Sunday versus St. Louis.
Arians officially described Palmer as a "game-time decision," and also expressed confidence in backup Drew Stanton "if it came to that." The Cardinals are clearly planning for Palmer to start despite his very-limited week of practice. Due to the injury, Palmer will not be a recommended streamer in standard fantasy leagues. He'll be more of a two-quarterback-league start.

Palmer has been extremely limited in this week's practices, attempting only "soft throws" in Thursday's session. It's certainly a concern heading into Sunday's game against the Rams, but for now, Palmer appears likely to start. What he's able to do on Friday will be key.

Carson Palmer remained limited in Thursday's practice, and "didn't throw as much" as the other quarterbacks in the portion of practice open to the media.
According to AzCardinals.com, Palmer attempted "nothing but soft throws," while Drew Stanton spent some team with the first-team offense. Palmer was wearing his helmet, which is typically a good sign. For now, owners shouldn't take Palmer's status for granted, but he still sounds more likely than not to suit up. His status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon.
