- All you Carson Palmer fans may be in for a disappointment this Sunday as it appears that the veteran QB will not be making the start against the Kansas City Chiefs. Palmer was acquired from the Bengals on Tuesday and it seems has not shed the rust that built up from inactivity. The Oakland Tribune reported that Kyle Boller took the first-team reps during Friday’s practice and that is a strong indicator of who will start on Sunday. Adam Schefter of ESPN.com also reported that sources told him that Palmer feels he doesn’t have the necessary zip on the ball to say nothing of having just a few days to learn and feel comfortable in the offence. Last week in a relief of the injured Jason Campbell, Boller was 8-for-14 for 100 yards. If he starts Sunday his main job will be handing off to RB Darren McFadden.
- It appears as if the Vikings will be without the services of cornerback Chris Cook for Sunday’s game against Green Bay following his arrest for domestic assault. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Cook was booked into jail Saturday for a variety of charges. “The Minnesota Vikings are aware of the incident involving Chris Cook,” the team said in a statement. “We take this matter very seriously and are still gathering all the details of the incident.” Cook is being held without bail and has a court appearance scheduled Monday.
- Word out of Oakland also has for former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor possibly making his NFL debut today. According to profootballtalk.com, the Raiders have installed plays specifically for Pryor against K.C. today.
