Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has cleared a hurdle in his return to the field. Per the team's official web site, Palmer can return to practice Wednesday, and barring an unexpected setback will start in Week 6 against the New York Jets.

Palmer missed the Cardinals' Week 5 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football after suffering a concussion the previous week. Backup quarterback Drew Stanton filled in, completing 11 of 28 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns.

Stanton's performance continued the trend of poor play from Cardinals quarterbacks that Palmer established in his four starts.

Palmer has a 58.8 percent completion rate through four games and is averaging 7.5 yards per attempt with six touchdowns and five interceptions. Those figures are all steep drops from the 2015 campaign during which he was a borderline MVP candidate that completed 63.7 percent of his passes at a league-leading 8.7 yards per attempt and tossed 35 touchdowns to 11 picks.

He should have a good chance to get back on track Monday night against the Jets, though. New York ranks 28th in the league in passing touchdowns allowed, 31st in passing yards per game allowed, and last in opponent's yards per attempt, opponent's passer rating, and 40-plus yard passes allowed. And coach Todd Bowles could not confirm Monday whether Darrelle Revis would be available against the Cardinals. All those things work in Palmer's favor in his return.
