HC Bruce Arians expects Palmer to clear concussion protocol on Tuesday, according to azcentral.com.
Bengal RB Jeremy Hill (shoulder) seems to have avoided serious injury but he was knocked out of the Week 5 game after just 15 snaps because of a shoulder injury, after entering the game with a chest injury. However, he’s expected to practice on Wednesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
