Cardinals QB Carson Palmer told coach Bruce Arians he thinks he may be able to return in "four to six" weeks instead of the initial prognosis of eight weeks to the rest of the season. Arians response: "That'd be great." But, Arians said, "it depends on what the surgeon says. He is a fast healer. He's had it broken before and basically said he was back in five.”

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer will get a second opinion on his broken left arm, coach Bruce Arians said Monday, that should help clarify how quickly Palmer can return and "still be protected with it." Once Arizona gets the results of the second opinion will help Arizona decide whether to put Palmer on injured reserve. If Palmer goes on IR, the Cardinals will save a roster spot for him, Arians said. But, regardless of what the second opinion concludes, Palmer will still need surgery, Arians said.

The Redskins only ran their running backs 13 times for 34 yards in the opener vs. the Eagles. But they do believe they can run on them based on previous games. But in the opener 10 of their runs came on first down. They'll need to be less predictable about when they run.

Ravens wide receivers Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman remain in the concussion protocol, coach John Harbaugh said. "We just have to see how it goes," Harbaugh said. "You can never predict that." It's a quick turnaround for Baltimore, which plays host to the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night.

Bruce Arians on whether the Cardinals will take a look at quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the wake of Carson Palmer's broken left arm: "We've never had more than two on our roster since I've been here. We liked Blaine Gabbert so much that we kept him this year. So, we're really where we always are. We may look for a practice squad arm.”

The Chiefs are so sure backup RB Charcandrick West will be ready for next week's game against the Broncos that they released RB C.J. Spiller for the fourth time this season.

Vikings S Andrew Sendejo is the latest NFL player to be suspended for an illegal hit in 2017. Sendejo joins a list that includes Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict and Bears LB Danny Trevathan. Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch was suspended for leaving the sideline and making contact with an official. Clearly, the NFL is maintaining and in some cases stepping up its efforts to deter what it considers violent acts.
