Source: #Cardinals QB Carson Palmer will not play today. He tested his shoulder out and couldn’t go. It’s Drew Stanton.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 14, 2014
Backup quarterback Drew Stanton will start for the Cardinals. Stanton has not played in an NFL game since 2010. In his seven-year career he has played in 12 games, starting four.
Palmer had been listed as questionable in the official injury report on Friday. He did come out to warm up, but apparently decided the shoulder would not allow him to throw.
This is a familiar scenario for the Giants, who won several games last season against opposing backup quarterbacks. It also makes winning Sunday even more critical for the 0-1 Giants.
