Carson Palmer Cleared To Practice

Quarterback out of concussion protocol; Linebacker Kevin Minter also cleared


Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was cleared to practice after suffering a concussion against the Rams.

As expected, Carson Palmer will be back for the Cardinals' game against the Jets on "Monday Night Football."

The quarterback – as well as linebacker Kevin Minter – was cleared to exit the NFL's concussion protocol Tuesday. The

Cardinals return to the practice field Wednesday.

Barring an unexpected setback, Palmer will start against the Jets.

Palmer had suffered the concussion late in the Cardinals' Oct. 2 loss to the Rams. He missed Thursday's victory in San Francisco, but coach Bruce Arians has said Palmer was close all along. The Cards had released quarterback Zac Dysert Monday, forecasting Palmer's official return.

Minter suffered his concussion late in the 49ers game. He did briefly return to the game before entering the protocol Friday.

Palmer has thrown for 1,150 yards this season with six touchdowns and five interceptions.
