The Facts: Palmer said he thinks "every second of every day" about trying to come back and play this season for the Cardinals. "I could potentially be available the last two weeks of the season," Palmer said. "Who knows? I don't know where I'll be (with rehab) at that point. I don't know where we will be as a team at that point. I just try to be as ready as I can as quick as I can."
Diehards Line:The quarterback, speaking publicly Saturday for the first time since he broke his left arm against the Rams in London Oct. 22, said he has talked to running backs David Johnson and T.J. Logan about having a casted arm and dealing with the loss of muscle and hand strength. The idea is that he could return from injured reserve, although the earliest he could play would be the Dec. 24 home game against the Giants. The uncertainty stretches to his future and the 2018 season as well. Palmer is under contract for next season, although retirement could be an option.
