Another article for ya... I had Palmer as my back up... so this does suck for me too.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Carson Palmer's (elbow) status for Week 5 against Dallas is "very iffy." Mort says Palmer's elbow is still very inflamed and the Bengals will act conservatively with their franchise QB. It sounds like it might take a near miraculous recovery from Palmer for Ryan Fitzpatrick to not make his second straight start. And that isn't good news for Cincinnnati's receivers.
