Palmer (ankle) unsure about return
Palmer sprained his left ankle in the first preseason game and has sat out the last two. He said Saturday that the ankle is improving, but he doesn't know what he'll be allowed to do leading up to Thursday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Palmer says he would like to play but the decision is up to the training staff.
The Bengals expect him to be ready for the season opener on Sept. 13 against the Denver Broncos.
