Palmer suffering from flu-like symptoms

Carson Palmer is suffering from flu-like symptoms, writes ESPN's James Walker, quoting a "source". This is the second practice that Palmer has missed in a row due to, what's been considered, an undisclosed illness. Joe Reedy said he began feeling sick between "Saturday’s two practice sessions."

However, head coach Marvin Lewis said that Palmer "should be well enough to practice tomorrow." The Bengals are quick to point out that Palmer's absence isn't related to his elbow.

In the meantime, the offense is being run by backup quarterbacks J.T. O'Sullivan and Carson's younger brother Jordan. Yikes!
