In the latter part of Week 2's game against the Lions Newton grimaced heavily and since then his production has been on a downward spiral. Coincidence? Probably not. Newton has busted ribs, is healing from ankle surgery and to make matters worse, he has very little offensive talent around him. It looks like Newton won't be a decent play until at least Week 9 against the Saints. Keep Newton on your bench.
Palmer expects to play this week against the Broncos. If he is suited up expect a solid QB2 performance with upside possibility against Denver. If Palmer can't go though, Stanton will get the nod.
