Carson Palmer will not play against 49ers on Thursday

Oct 5, 2016 at 11:40 AM--


The Arizona Cardinals have declared quarterback Carson Palmer out for Thursday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers. In his place, the 49ers defense will face Drew Stanton at quarterback.


Head coach Bruce Arians said that Palmer will not travel with the Cardinals to Santa Clara. The quarterback had made progress this week while in the concussion protocol, but the team does not want to take any chances. Palmer did not practice this week.

Stanton, 32, was the quarterback in 2014 when the Cardinals beat the 49ers 23-14. He passed for 244 yards and two touchdowns in the September matchup.

Stanton is 7-5 as a starter, but has completed just 54-percent of his passes and thrown 18 interceptions compared to 12 touchdowns.

'I know he can play': Carson Wentz excited about 49ers rookie Trey Lance's first start

Trey Lance was 17-0 as a starter at North Dakota State. Before him, Easton Stick was 49-3 as a starter. Before either of them, Carson Wentz impressed pro scouts during his 20-3 collegiate run. Five years after Wentz's first NFL start, Lance is getting his chance. A calf injury has sidelined Jimmy Garoppolo, so the No. 3 overall pick will start Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. One former Bison quarterback is excited for the other. "I definitely did get to know Trey a little bit over the last couple of years, and even going into the pre-draft process," Wentz told Rich Eisen today. "Great kid. Great kid.

On the surface, it may seem like 49ers quarterback Trey Lance took a bit too much punishment in his first NFL start, having carried the ball 16 times while being on the other end of two sacks and seven quarterback hits. But thankfully, Lance got out of the game unscathed and assured reporters afterwards the hits he took weren't as bad as they looked. Lance spoke to reporters following the 49ers' 17-10 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, during which he ran for 89 yards while also throwing for 192 yards and one interception on 15-of-29 passing. He downplayed any concerns about the amount of hits he took, saying that most of them didn't exactly leave him in pain. "I didn't really think I took too many shots. I'm sure I'll see how I feel tomorrow. A lot of them were

Golden Nugget Award: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel continues dominating play in loss to Seahawks

Each week, I present the Golden Nugget Award to a San Francisco 49ers player who had an outstanding game or managed to defy the odds. Week 4's award goes to third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The other nominees for this week's award were quarterback Trey Lance for coming off the bench and displaying why the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to draft him, defensive ends Dee Ford and Nick Bosa for showing dominance along the defensive line, and running back Trey Sermon for his 19 carries for 89 rushing yards against the Seattle Seahawks. Samuel, whose real name is Tyshun, received the nickname Deebo, the name of the notorious bully from the movie "Friday," from his father Galen, because he always took things away from people as a toddler.
