The 34-year-old slinger was lauded for his durability in 2013 , where he didn’t miss a single start. But a nerve injury to his right shoulder in the second quarter against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1 has sidelined Palmer since.
Palmer was excused from practice Wednesday so that, Arians said, he could see another specialist.
“And see if he can find an answer,” the coach said.
It is a disappointing turn of events for the quarterback, who just last week expressed confidence that he would be ready to play in Denver this weekend. He had progressed and even threw upwards of 30 and 40 yards Thursday and Friday, but Arians said the veteran regressed over the weekend.
