Palmer unlikely to start Sunday for Raiders

  • Jim Racalto

OAKLAND, CA.ESPN broke the news today that newly acquired Raider, quarterback Carson Palmer, is “unlikely” to start Sunday against Kansas City.

No immediate reason was given, but some are citing his inactivity and conditioning as the reasons. We are more likely to see Palmer hit the field after the bye week next Sunday, so he has time to get re-acclimated to NFL game speed.

This is surprising, as coach Hue Jackson stated earlier this week: “if he’s breathing, he’s starting.”

This leaves two options for the Raiders Sunday at QB, career backup Kyle Boller and Ohio State rookie Terrelle Pryor.
