by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Cardinals' head coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer understands the window to win now is getting slimmer, according to

"He knows the clock's ticking," Arians said Tuesday, via the team's official website. "It is for a lot of guys on this team. You get a window to make a run and most of it depends on your quarterback. Right now, it's our window. There is a sense of urgency."

The Cardinals were 8-1 last season before Palmer went down with a season-ending ACL tear.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer kept out of 11-on-11 drills
by Igor Mello |

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was kept out of 11-on-11 drills during the first day of organized team activities on Tuesday, per ESPN.

Palmer, who is six months removed from surgery to repair a torn left ACL, was limited to 7-on-7 drills instead on Tuesday.

"Just felt good to not be around cones and hurdles, and step overs and all the different on-field things that we've been using -- bags," Palmer said. "It felt good to be around other humans and going 7-on-7 and have that competition, that speed, that quickness of the game because I got a lot of work to do, a long way to go."

Palmer added that he'll play the entire season with a knee brace.

"I've been politicking with the trainers and the physical trainers because 12 plays just isn't enough for me and I need more action out there," Palmer said.

Cardinals rookie QB Phillip Sims impressing coaching staff early
by Brandon Wise |

Cardinals rookie quarterback Phillip Sims is showing coach Bruce Arians why he made a good decision to sign him after a tryout, according to

Arians believes Sims can compete for the No. 3 quarterback role with Logan Thomas and Chandler Harnish this offseason.

"He had no problem listening to (the play) and calling it without it being repeated to him two or three times," Arians said. "Most rookies, they'll get the shift and maybe the formation, then they will turn their head around and ask for the play (again) and everything else.

"He was able to get it. His reads were correct. He actually changed a protection once and I was like, 'Whoa, you're up to level five already. These guys can't do that.' And he was very accurate. He got my attention. He's in the mix."
