Glazer later reported that Palmer met with the Cardinals in Denver on Saturday after working with a specialist who also helped Peyton Manning recover from nerve issues associated with the QB’s third neck surgery. In Denver, Arizona Sports’ Paul Calvisi tweeted a photo of Palmer throwing during warm-ups.Yes — that’s Carson Palmer throwing from about 10 yards away here pre-game #AZvsDEN pic.twitter.com/DSVHDF1LuF— Paul Calvisi (@PaulCalvisi) October 5, 2014 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Cardinals are a perfect 3-0, 2-0 without their starting QB. Drew Stanton has completed 51.6 percent of his throws for 411 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in two games as the starter. Arizona’s starting QB getting healthy is imperative as they play in the very tough NFC West with five division games remaining.
All that being said, Haskins is still probably buried on the depth chart at running back. If Charbonnet comes back healthy, the trio of Charbonnet, Tru Wilson, and Christian Turner seem likely to eat up most of the carries. But injuries happen, so maybe Haskins slips into a contributing role at some point. He will be battling against the likes of redshirt freshman fullback/tailback Ben Van Sumeren, who played quite a bit in the spring with the absence of Charbonnet. Prediction: Backup running back, special teamer 1 0You need to login in order to vote Hassan Haskins (image via Wolverines Wire) Haskins spent the 2018 season bouncing back and forth between running back and linebacker. It seemed like he was bound for linebacker until the great mass exodus of running backs hit, removing Karan Higdon (senior), Chris Evans (dumb mistake), and O’Maury Samuels (allegedly really dumb mistake) from the roster. Now the dearth of running backs creates a need for someone like Haskins to be ready to contribute, especially because true freshman Zach Charbonnet had knee surgery in the spring.
