Adam Schefter: Carson Palmer likely to start for Arizona Cardinals

After looking like only Logan Thomas would be available, it might be all three QBs will be available.

The quarterback situation appears to be getting better by the minute. In an early Sunday morning report by ESPN's Adam Schefter, Carson Palmer is expected to start at quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals against the Washington Redskins.

Schefter tweeted the decision as to who would make the start wouldn't be made until about two hours before the 4:05 PM kickoff time, but team sources believe Palmer is "likely" to be the guy under center.

Palmer hasn't played since Week 1, when he suffered a shoulder injury and a nerve issue kept him out.

On Friday, head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer was throwing at about 80 percent velocity and the quarterback returned to Denver for a second MAT (Muscle Activation Technique) treatment on Friday.

Early in the week, it appeared that rookie Logan Thomas would get the start. He took the first team reps in practice all week while Palmer recovered and backup Drew Stanton recovered from a concussion he suffered last Sunday against the Broncos.

Stanton was cleared to play on Friday.
