ESPN Says Carson Palmer Will Be Raiders Starting QB Against Chiefs

Well, that was quick.

On Tuesday evening, Oakland Raiders head coach wouldn't publicly say who will be the starting quarterback for the Raiders against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. It would either be Kyle Boller or Carson Palmer, who the team traded for on Tuesday.

On Wednesday morning, Al Saunders went on 610 Sports with Bob Fescoe and Josh Klingler and strongly suggestedPalmer could be ready to play this weekend against the Chiefs.

Later on Wednesday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter that it will indeed be Palmer starting this weekend.

Chiefs head coach Todd Haley was on SiriusXM NFL Radio this morning talking with Rich Gannon and Adam Schein and he said, like the Indianapolis Colts game, they'll have to spend some time preparing for two quarterbacks.

Apparently, they can now put their focus on Palmer.
