Cardinals QB Carson Palmer Expected To Miss 8 Weeks With Broken Arm


Cardinals HC Bruce Arians announced after Sunday’s game that QB Carson Palmer suffered a broken arm and will miss eight weeks following surgery.

Arizona will move forward with Drew Stanton as their starting quarterback for the time being with Blaine Gabbert as their backup.

It would not be surprising to see Palmer placed on injured reserve in the coming days, as this is likely too much time to carry him on the active roster. The Cardinals and always designate him to return later on in the year if they’re still in contention at that point.
