TEMPE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals are viewing Carson Palmer’s nerve injury as a week-to-week issue, with the belief that it could “wake up” at any given time and allow the quarterback to resume his role as the team’s starter.

Until then, however, the job will continue to belong to Drew Stanton. And behind Stanton, rookie Logan Thomas waits.

In a perfect world, neither would have taken a snap in 2014. But that’s not how things work, and until Palmer is ready to go, the team will continue to rely on a quarterback who before this season had not thrown a regular season pass since 2010. And, should something happen to him, they will turn to a quarterback was as raw a prospect as you could find in last May’s draft.

It’s not exactly how the Cardinals drew it up, but it’s the reality they are dealing with. And that’s fine.

“Everybody has all the confidence in the world in Drew, and Logan’s getting better,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said.
