Bruce Arians: Carson Palmer will continue to lead Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians made a special Veterans Day appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s “Late Hits.” Arians joined Alex Marvez and Bill Polian, and of course the topic of the day was quarterback Carson Palmer.

With Palmer out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, the starting reigns are handed back off again to Drew Stanton. Arians told Marvez and Polian that it’s status quo in the locker room. He said “nobody blinks in our locker room,” with the change from Palmer to Stanton.

Arians said that Palmer is “devastated” by the injury, because of how hard he worked to get ready for the season and how hard he worked during the season. Arians told Marvez and Polian just what he told the media on Monday about Palmer’s upcoming surgery: that it will happen once the swelling in Palmer’s knee goes away.

Arians also said that Palmer could return in time to take part in some OTAs. Arians believes the latest Palmer could return is sometime next July.

Arians also said that once Palmer begins his rehab, he’d continue to lead the team as he did before the injury, which will include going out with the other Cardinals captains for the coin toss before the games.
