The veteran signal-caller has been dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder since Week Two of the NFL season. Whether he can start (or even play) against the Broncos at this point remains up in the air.
The 3-0 Red Birds had their bye week last week and Palmer seemed to be encouraged after throwing some passes last Wednesday. However, the USC product has not made as much progress as he would have liked since then.
