Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he was "concerned" over Carson Palmer's shoulder injury that kept him out of Sunday's game. He also went on to hint that it could be a minor issue as well. (Source: Rotoworld)

Fantasy Impact: This is not the news fantasy owners wanted to hear out of Arizona. Not only is this bad news for Palmer, but it could prove negative for Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald owners as well. Palmer has shown that he can get his two star receivers the ball, but backup QB Drew Stanton, who filled in for Palmer on Sunday, seemed to struggle against a poor New York Giants defense, only passing for 167 yards. Hopefully we will see Palmer back in action in a week or two.

Updating a previous news item, Palmer's 50% chance to play has dropped to 0%, as he tested his shoulder and cannot go, Drew Stanton will get the start. (Source: Ian Rapoport via twitter)

Fantasy Impact: We'll know more about just exactly what Palmer has been dealing with shortly, right now its being referred to as a shoulder injury. Palmer is still worth rostering, as we don't know just how severe this injury is. However, this news lowers the fantasy ceiling of Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.

Per Schefter's source, Palmer (shoulder) has not thrown a pass since Monday, and is 50-50 to play today. Palmer is listed as questionable on the official injury report. (Source: Adam Schefter via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Nearly every Cardinal that is fantasy relevant (Palmer/Ellington/Fitzgerald) is dealing with some sort of malady this week. While a little more specific than a hockey injury report of "upper body injury", we don't exactly know specifically what is wrong with Palmer, other than it's his shoulder that is holding him back. Head Coach Bruce Arians stated Friday that Palmer is dealing with a "nerve thing", leading ESPN's Stephania Bell to theorize that Palmer is dealing with a pinched nerve. Palmer makes a very attractive plug and play starter in 8-12 team leagues/primo QB2 in 2 QB leagues, if he's healthy.

Fantasy Impact: Carson Palmer looked a lot more comfortable in Bruce Arians offense than he did all of last season. This game was the 33rd time Palmer has passed for over 300 yards in a game for his career. Palmer was also able to put in 4 carries for 29 yards on the ground, something we haven't seen in his arsenal before. Going forward, as long as Palmer has Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to throw too, he will be a very solid QB2 with low QB1 upside. Look for another solid game from Palmer in week 2 as the Cardinals travel to New York to play a Giants defense that was just torched by Matthew Stafford for 346 passing yards.

Carson Palmer's day is done after one series during the Cardinals preseason opener against the Texans. He went a perfect 5-for-5 which included a 7-yard touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald. (Source: TD Monk)

Fantasy Impact: Palmer looked sharp despite the offensive line allowing a sack forcing a third and long situation. He proceeded to throw a 24 yard completion to rookie WR John Brown for a first down and then a 38 yarder to TE Rob Housler before hooking up with Fitzgerald on the touchdown. Palmer projects to be one of the better QB2 options this season.
