The Arizona Cardinals have promoted quarterback Zac Dysert from their practice squad to regular roster spot. Starting quarterback Carson Palmer suffered a head injury last Sunday and there are NFL rumors that Palmer could be on his way out of the Arizona’s roster.
There are also reports that signing Dysert will be just for the short-term. The Cardinals have a quick turnaround this week. They lost to the Los Angeles Rams, 17-13 last Sunday and will face the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football.
A trade of Palmer would depend how the Cardinals recover this regular season.
Adam Schefter of ESPN.com stated that the Cardinals have “doubts” on Palmer’s readiness to play versus 49ers.

Palmer left the Rams game with a head injury and he could be suffering from a concussion that’s why Arizona is not rushing him back to the field. However, Arizona has lost three of their firs four games of the season and Palmer was not playing well as the starter for the Cardinals.
After the 49ers on Thursday, the Cardinals will face the New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers. Two of those teams are playoff teams and Arizona may be in danger of missing the postseason this year after winning the NFC West last season.
Against San Francisco, the Cardinals will use backup Drew Stanton as starter with newly-promoted Zac Dysert as the No. 2 QB.
