Carson Palmer (elbow, questionable) is "determined to play" Sunday in Dallas, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Mort is worried about Palmer's ability to finish the game, but sounds pretty optimistic about his ability to start. The Bengals and Cowboys don't square off until 4:15PM ET, but Palmer is worth waiting for in most settings.

Looks like he's going to start...

Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer practiced Friday and could play Sunday at Dallas but was listed as questionable on the injury report.

"He did well," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. "We'll see how it is in the morning (today). If things continue as they have, it's all systems go."

Palmer practiced fully Friday and threw all of his passes.

"He threw long ones, short ones, middle ones, outside ones," Lewis said.

Palmer missed last Sunday's loss at home to Cleveland because of an inflamed right (throwing) elbow. He does not have ligament damage and has undergone extensive physical therapy. He had his arm grabbed by a pass rusher against the New York Giants Sept. 21 while his arm was moving forward to throw the ball.

"I feel fine," said Palmer, whose streak of 51 consecutive starts was snapped against the Browns. Ryan Fitzpatrick started at quarterback and threw for one touchdown and three interceptions, lost one fumble and was sacked three times.

"I was still taking snaps in the run game (during the week)," Palmer said. "Every rep that Ryan took, I took mentally. I went through the same week of preparation, film and game plan."

Palmer played his best game of the season in an overtime loss to the Giants, totaling 286 passing yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. For the season, he has one touchdown, three interceptions and 514 yards for a 63.9 passer rating.

Bengals inactives: QB Jordan Palmer (3rd), S Dexter Jackson, RB Reagan Maui’a, LB Corey Mays, WR Andre Caldwell, WR Jerome Simpson, DT Pat Sims, DT Jason Shirley.

Analysis: QB Carson Palmer is active and will start against the Cowboys.
