Palmer Practices, May Start Sunday


AP Sports Writer

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Carson Palmer shared time with the

first-team offense with Kyle Boller at his initial practice with

the Oakland Raiders.

Coach Hue Jackson says it remains to be seen who will get the

start on Sunday against Kansas City in Oakland's first game since

losing starter Jason Campbell to a broken collarbone and making the

bold trade to acquire Palmer.

Palmer says there is definitely a learning curve after spending

the last few months working out on his own in Southern California

while refusing to report to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Both Palmer and Boller say they are preparing to start Sunday

against the Chiefs. Jackson says he likely won't make his final

decision until after watching a week of practice.
