Palmer has not played since injuring a nerve in his throwing shoulder in the season opening win over San Diego. He flew to Denver for more treatment on Friday.
All three quarterbacks were active for Arizona. Drew Stanton, the starter in the previous three games, was listed as questionable after sustaining a concussion in last Sunday's loss at Denver. Rookie Logan Thomas was the only healthy Cardinals quarterback in practice last week.
As expected, defensive end Calais Campbell (knee) was inactive for Arizona.
