Carson Palmer's little brother, Jordan, entered last week's game completing three passes for 18 yards during the final minutes with the Bengals dealing with an unexpected 18-point deficit against the Buffalo Bills. It was the first time that Jordan completed a pass in a regular season game since 2008 when he replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick during the team's super-competitive 35-3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on December 7.

The question was asked on Tuesday if Jordan replaced Carson Palmer due to an injury. Along with missing Monday and Tuesday's practice this week with a foot injury, Carson Palmer is reportedly in a boot for precautionary reasons. He said no.

"Just a sore foot and they just stick you in the boot just to be cautious," he said.

Joe Reedy summarizes Carson Palmer's recent string of injuries this year.

Over the past four weeks, Palmer has missed practice due to an injured hip, sore throwing shoulder and now the foot.

Before some of you start daydreaming of the day that Jordan Palmer or Dan LeFevour will start, Carson Palmer and Marvin Lewis have both said that Carson is starting this Thursday against the New York Jets.
