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.
Just a gut feeling here, but the Lions secondary is still really beat up and with the Bills moving in Orton's direction for Week 5, I am sure they will be testing Orton out. Especially against the Lions formidable line. Could be a sneaky play this week with upside potential.
