Palmer completed 29 of 49 passes for 342 yards with another eight yards on one carry in Sunday's 6-6 tie against Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals ran 90 offensive plays in a 75-minute game, outgaining Seattle 443 to 257 in total yards. Palmer's hamstring didn't appear to be a problem, but the Arizona offense stalled whenever it reached Seattle territory, failing to cross the 19-yard line until the closing minutes of overtime. The 36-year-old quarterback has thrown just two touchdown passes over the past four games, after tossing five through the first two weeks of the season. While some difficult matchups have surely contributed to the slump, Palmer simply hasn't been the consistent high-end fantasy option that he was for the entirety of last season. He at least has a good chance to get back on track in Week 8 against a struggling Carolina pass defense.

Palmer (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Six days removed from sustaining cramps in his hamstring, Palmer will direct the offense in this key NFC West matchup against a Seattle defense that has contained opposing quarterbacks to 59 percent passing and four touchdown tosses across five games this season.

Palmer (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dealing with a shortened week after playing on Monday night, Palmer sat out Wednesday's practice but returned to limited sessions both Thursday and Friday. Head coach Bruce Arians said his quarterback was able to make all the necessary throws at Friday's practice, thoughthe team did run more plays from pistol formations in an effort to limit Palmer's movement. Given his long-standing reputation as a strong-armed statue in the pocket, Palmer shouldn't be too bothered by a slight loss in mobility, so long as he's able to complete his drop backs and step into his throws. He seems to be trending in the right direction, but Sunday's 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff still isn't ideal for worried fantasy owners. Palmer may also be missing a key weapon or two, as John Brown (leg) is doubtful and Jaron Brown (knee) is questionable.

Head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer (hamstring) was able to make all the necessary throws at Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Arians also said Palmer should be his normal self Sunday, though it's possible the veteran QB will have somewhat limited mobility. Considering he rarely ventures from the pocket even when healthy, Palmer shouldn't be too affected by his minor hamstring injury. Another update will be available Friday afternoon when the Cardinals release their final injury report for Sunday's game against Seattle.

Palmer (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

During the part of drills open to the media, Palmer worked with the training staff on a side field, which inspired the belief that he wouldn't practice. With some practice reps now in his back pocket, he appears as if he's on the road to active status Sunday versus the Seahawks, but his hamstring issue could conspire to dampen his activity level Friday as well.

Palmer (hamstring) received a planned day off Wednesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Less than 48 hours removed from a win on Monday Night Football, Palmer's absence isn't a shock due to his veteran status and the fact he left the game with cramps in his hamstring. According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Palmer expects to throw at Thursday's practice, which would be his first step as he readies to face the Seahawks on Sunday evening.

Palmer (hamstring) downplayed his exit from Sunday's 28-3 win over the Jets, saying afterward that he merely dealt with cramps, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The injury never appeared serious, as Palmer stayed on the sideline after exiting midway through the fourth quarter of a blowout. His post-game comments suggest he should be ready for Week 7 against Seattle, but his practice status will still be worth monitoring as the Cardinals prepare for the game.

Palmer was removed from Sunday's blowout win over the Jets with a hamstring strain in the fourth quarter, Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

EDGE Analysis

Palmer left after throwing his only touchdown pass of the night to give the Cardinals a 28-3 lead with just over eight minutes remaining. He stayed on the sideline and watched Drew Stanton finish out the rest of the game -- as opposed to heading back to the locker room for an evaluation -- which suggests the injury isn't initially thought to be serious. His practice status will still need to be monitored heading into a Week 7 tilt with the division-leading Seahawks.

Palmer (concussion) was officially a full practice participant Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals took the practice field Wednesday, after which head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer handled every rep, but they weren't required to submit an injury report with a Monday night game on the schedule in Week 6. Putting his concussion behind him, Palmer will look to exploit a Jets pass defense that has conceded at least three touchdown passes in three of five contests this season.

Head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that Palmer (concussion) logged a full practice Wednesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a Monday night appearance on tap, the Cardinals aren't required to release an injury report until Thursday, but Arians' word on Palmer all but clears him of concussion symptoms. If he indeed completes all drills this week, Palmer will continue to right the ship against a Jets defense that has yielded 302.4 passing yards per game, good for second-worst in the NFL.
