Carson Palmer is hopeful he can return from his broken left arm in 4-6 weeks.

He's going for a second opinion on Monday. Palmer's initial timeline was eight weeks, so 4-6 weeks would be a significant improvement. The injury is to Palmer's left (non-throwing) arm, perhaps giving him a better shot at a sooner-than-expected return. The Cardinals insist they will be riding with Drew Stanton in the meantime. We would humbly suggest they give Blaine Gabbert a longer look.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the team will "stick with" Drew Stanton as their starting quarterback.

Carson Palmer suffered a broken arm Sunday which will sideline him at least eight weeks and possibly the rest of the season. Stanton completed just 5-of-14 passes for 62 yards with zero scores in over a half of work in relief against the Rams, and he has struggled to move the ball throughout his career. Arizona should strongly consider giving Blaine Gabbert a shot.

Jermaine Gresham caught 1-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Gresham had more penalties than catches in this one. He hasn't seen more than three targets in game since Week 3. Gresham isn't on the fantasy map.
Oct 22 - 5:38 PM

J.J. Nelson caught 2-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

He's a non-factor in fantasy with all of the Cardinals' receivers healthy. And Nelson will be even more useless with Drew Stanton under center.
Oct 22 - 5:31 PM

Jaron Brown caught 2-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Brown's 37 yards led the team on a day Carson Palmer broke his arm and was replaced by an inept Drew Stanton. Brown won't be fantasy relevant with Stanton under center. This offense will struggle to score points.
Oct 22 - 5:23 PM

John Brown caught 1-of-4 targets for six yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

He didn't catch a pass in the second half, as Drew Stanton managed to throw for just 62 yards on 14 attempts after replacing Carson Palmer in the second quarter following Palmer's broken arm. Brown and the rest of the Arizona offense needs to be downgraded significantly following the loss of Palmer.
Oct 22 - 5:15 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

He wasn't even targeted in the second half. The Cardinals got creamed 33-0, and Drew Stanton couldn't move the ball whatsoever after Carson Palmer broke his arm in the second quarter. Stanton will likely lean on Fitzgerald as the starter moving forward, but it's really hard to be excited about anyone in this offense with Stanton touching the ball every play. Fitzgerald will be more of a WR3 when the Cardinals come out of their bye in Week 9 at the Niners.
Oct 22 - 5:01 PM

Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 21 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

He was targeted four times in the pass game, catching just one for 12 yards and dropping a pair. Peterson had a monster debut with the Cardinals in Week 6, but he crashed all the way back to Earth in this one, especially with the Cardinals falling in a deep hole and losing 33-0. Now with Carson Palmer (arm) out for eight weeks, the Cardinals will try to lean on Peterson on the ground. But with Drew Stanton under center, defenses are going to jam up the running lanes.
Oct 22 - 4:52 PM

Drew Stanton completed just 5-of-14 passes for 62 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Carson Palmer broke his left (non-throwing) arm in the second quarter and needs surgery. He's out for eight weeks and possibly the remainder of the season. Stanton came on in relief and was flat-out awful. His interception was thrown literally right to LB Mark Barron in the middle of the field. Stanton's play is inexcusable for an 11-year veteran. He's never been able to move the ball in his time with coach Bruce Arians. Stanton will be the starter moving forward, ahead of Blaine Gabbert. For now. Arizona heads into its bye before then going to San Francisco.

Carson Palmer suffered a broken left arm Week 7 against the Rams and needs surgery.

He's going to miss eight weeks, so this is a potential season- and career-ender for Palmer depending on his plans for 2018 and beyond. Drew Stanton was absolutely horrid in relief against the Rams, going 5-of-14 for 62 yards and a mind-numbing interception. The Cardinals' offense is one to avoid moving forward. Stanton simply isn't -- and never has been -- capable of moving the ball.
Oct 22 - 4:20 PM

Carson Palmer exited Week 7 against the Rams with a left hand or wrist injury.

Palmer took a hit on his second-quarter interception and appeared to be nursing something with his left arm after the hit. The Rams quickly scored a touchdown, and Drew Stanton came into the game as Palmer jogged to the locker room. Before leaving, Palmer was 10-of-18 for 122 yards and the pick.
Oct 22 - 2:21 PM

Cardinals declared RB Andre Ellington, QB Blaine Gabbert, WR Chad Williams, RB D.J. Foster, OL Daniel Munyer, DL Olsen Pierre, and TE Ricky Seals-Jones inactive for Week 7 against the Rams.

Ellington is battling a quad injury. Adrian Peterson will again get all he can handle.
Oct 22 - 11:35 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he "would love" if Adrian Peterson saw 25 carries per game.

He added they could get Peterson involved in the passing game now that he has more of the playbook down, something they may need with Andre Ellington unlikely to play against the Rams. Peterson is a must-start this week in a great matchup.
Oct 22 - 10:58 AM

Andre Ellington (quad) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Rams.

Ellington was optimistically listed as questionable, though his chances of playing were always slim after sitting out practice on both Thursday and Friday. His absence is a boost to Adrian Peterson, who should see more work on passing downs Sunday at Twickenham Stadium in London. With AD looking like an every-down back, Ellington can probably be dropped in most leagues.
Oct 22 - 8:27 AM

Andre Ellington (quad) is questionable for Week 7 against the Rams.

Ellington hasn't practiced the last two days and is probably a long shot to play Sunday against the Rams. Adrian Peterson should be close to an every-down back if Ellington can't get the green light.
