 Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer expects to be limited in practice this week by a sore elbow on his passing arm, but insists he'll be ready for the next game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Palmer sat out a 20-12 loss to Cleveland on Sunday, the first game he missed since the end of the 2004 season. He hurt his elbow a week earlier in a loss to the Giants, but stayed in that game and practiced for two days last week despite pain in the elbow.
The Bengals decided to sit him out for a game on doctors' advice, giving the elbow time to heal. Palmer indicated Monday the injury isn't serious enough to require surgery.
The Bengals struggled on Sunday behind backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who hadn't thrown a pass in a regular-season game since 2005. The Bengals are 0-4 for the first time in six years, with their next game Sunday in Dallas against a team coming off its first loss.

Coach Marvin Lewis is going day by day with his franchise quarterback. He'll see how Palmer's elbow feels on Wednesday, then decide whether to let him practice.
The Bengals expect to get a roster exemption for receiver Chris Henry, who has completed a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's conduct policy. Henry would be allowed to practice with the team this week, but wouldn't have to be added to the active roster.
Bills
Cornerback Terrence McGee needs more tests on his sprained left knee, leaving his status uncertain for the undefeated Bills' upcoming game at Arizona.
Coach Dick Jauron said McGee was having difficulty walking on Monday, but it was too early to determine whether the starter would miss any playing time. The AFC East-leading Bills (4-0), off to their best start since 1992, return to practice Wednesday.
McGee was hurt making a tackle in the first quarter of Buffalo's 31-14 win at St. Louis on Sunday. The injury forced the Bills to use nickel back Ashton Youboty and rookie first-round draft pick Leodis McKelvin to fill in opposite starter Jabari Greer.
