The Arizona Cardinals enter the 2015 season with some of the greatest expectations in franchise history.

Fresh off their first playoff berth since 2009, there remains one major question among national pundits: Can quarterback Carson Palmer stay healthy?

CBSSports.com writer Pete Prisco said Palmer’s health was the biggest burning question for the Cardinals this season.

How healthy is Carson Palmer?

Palmer, the team’s starting quarterback, looked good in the OTAs and mini-camp and appears to be back from his second torn ACL. But that’s still a big hurdle to get past when things start for real. Palmer is a pro’s pro, and he seems all the way back, but this camp will give the Cardinals a better indication of just where he is now.

Palmer, 35, went 6-0 in six starts last season, a campaign that was cut short due to a torn ACL against the St. Louis Rams. He is 13-2 in his last 15 starts for Arizona.

The two-time Pro-Bowler has thrown for 35,365 yards and 224 touchdown passes in his 12-year NFL career.

Arizona went 11-5 last season en route to a wild card berth, where they lost in the wild card round to the Carolina Panthers.

Cardinals training camp begins Saturday, Aug. 1, in Glendale.
