Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie expects Carson Palmer (cracked ribs, bruised lung) to be ready for OTAs.

Palmer still has some recovering to do, but the latest medical reports on him are "good," and the injuries were never concerning long term. Palmer, who turned 33 in December, finished the 2012 season with a 22:14 TD-to-INT ratio and 4,018 passing yards, the latter statistic skewed heavily by frequent pass-happy comeback mode. He's expected to return as Oakland's starter in 2013.
