Carson Palmer Unlikely To Start For Raiders In Week 7, According To Report

The Oakland Raiders acquired Carson Palmer in a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday and shortly after that multiple media reports came out indicating that Palmer was likely to start on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs

Raiders head coach Hue Jackson has been consistent in saying that a decision hasn't been made although it was widely believed that Palmer would likely start.

Apparently, it's now unlikely he starts against the Chiefs. ESPN's Adam Schefter cites two people familiar with the situation who believe Palmer is unlikely to start against the Chiefs.

Jackson said he will likely make a decision on Friday night, though that doesn't mean he'll announce that decision publicly. It could be that we don't know Oakland's starter until Sunday morning, a few hours before they host the Chiefs.

Perhaps that's part of Oakland's strategy

Stay tuned to SB Nation's Silver and Black Pride for the latest on Palmer's status for Sunday.
