Carson Palmer completed 13-of-25 passes for 178 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions in Sunday's 17-10 Week 16 upset at Seattle.

Palmer was predictably horrific in this brutal spot, throwing passes up for grabs and sparring with Bruce Arians on the sideline. He now has two touchdowns and six interceptions in two meetings with the Legion of Boom this season. But Palmer did make one great throw, a jump ball to Michael Floyd for a 31-yard game-winning touchdown with 2:20 left in the fourth. The Cardinals have won three straight games and seven of their last eight heading into another tough Week 17 matchup against the 49ers.

Carson Palmer (ankle) is starting Sunday's game against the Seahawks, as expected.

It's worth noting that the Cardinals have three quarterbacks active Sunday, a sign they fear Palmer could aggravate his sprain. Only truly desperate owners should be using Palmer in this impossible spot against the Legion of Boom.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Carson Palmer (ankle/elbow, questionable) is on track to start Sunday's game at Seattle.

He's expected to have top receiver Larry Fitzgerald (questionable, concussion) in the wideout corps. The Cardinals badly need an upset win Sunday to stay in serious playoff contention. A win for Seattle would clinch home-field advantage throughout the postseason. Palmer is dealing with a low-grade ankle sprain and some sort of elbow soreness. He's a QB2 in fantasy leagues.

Carson Palmer (ankle) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday.

Palmer will be listed as "limited," but he's in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Seahawks. The prohibitive matchup has Palmer as a low-end QB2 for championship week.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians clarified Monday that Carson Palmer does not have a high ankle sprain.

Palmer suffered a low-grade ankle sprain in Sunday's overtime win over the Titans. He played through it and finished out the game, and should be fine for Week 16 at Seattle. Palmer has been a high-end QB2 in fantasy this season. The Cards are in danger of being without Larry Fitzgerald (concussion), however.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians revealed following Sunday's Week 15 win that Carson Palmer suffered a high ankle sprain against the Titans.

The Cardinals gave Palmer a "heavy tape job," and he didn't miss a snap. The injury sounds similar to the one Peyton Manning is currently playing through. Still, we'd be more apt to downgrade Palmer's fantasy outlook, especially as he gears up to visit the Seahawks at CenturyLink in Week 16.

Carson Palmer completed 20-of-30 passes for 231 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Titans.

The Cardinals' passing attack hit the skids in this one against Tennessee's stout pass defense, which was keyed by interior pressure from underrated superstar DT Jurell Casey. Palmer still did enough to keep Arizona competitive, and found Jake Ballard posted up for a six-yard touchdown in the second half to give the Cards a 20-17 lead. Rashard Mendenhall and Antoine Cason accounted for Arizona's other three touchdowns. Palmer will be a low-end QB2 when the Cardinals travel to Seattle in fantasy finals week.
