It will be Martin's first missed game of the season if he indeed cannot suit up Sunday. Joplo Bartu would figure to see an increased workload providing depth at inside linebacker if Martin is sidelined as expected.
Stinson was able to practice in a limited role on Thursday, but was sidelined the rest of the week at practice. This will mark his third consecutive game missed due to a toe injury.
Dealing with a short week after playing on Monday night, Brown missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, then managed a limited showing Friday. His availability takes on added importance with fellow wideout John Brown (leg) listed as doubtful and potentially facing a multi-game absence. If neither Brown is able to play, J.J. Nelson would likely have a regular spot in three-wide sets alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.
Recent blood tests revealed that Brown is suffering from leg pains caused by sickle-cell trait, not the hamstring injury that was previously reported. This may explain why he's been hampered by lower-body issues on and off for the past couple years in addition to struggling with his conditioning earlier this season. He didn't practice at all this week, which essentially ensures he'll miss Sunday's game. Michael Floyd and J.J. Nelson figure to take on added snaps and targets -- especially if Jaron Brown (knee) is also unavailable. Given the nature of (John) Brown's health concern, he may be facing a highly variable timetable to return.
Dealing with a shortened week after playing on Monday night, Palmer sat out Wednesday's practice, but he returned to limited sessions both Thursday and Friday. Head coach Bruce Arians said his quarterback was able to make all the necessary throws at Friday's practice, though the team did run more plays from pistol formations in an effort to limit Palmer's movement. Given his long-standing reputation as a strong-armed statue in the pocket, Palmer shouldn't be too bothered by a slight loss in mobility, provided he's able to complete his drop backs and step into his throws. He seems to be trending in the right direction, but Sunday's 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff still isn't ideal for worried fantasy owners. Palmer may also be missing a key weapon or two, as John Brown (leg) is doubtful and Jaron Brown (knee) is questionable.
