The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday that they are placing Carson Palmer on season-ending injured reserve after he tore his ACL during Sunday’s game.
- Arizona also announced that they have signed QB Ryan Lindley off the Chargers’ practice squad on Tuesday.
Palmer was expected to be placed on injured reserve, so this news is really more of a confirmation than anything else.
Palmer, 34, just signed a brand new three-year contract worth over $50 million in total and includes $20.5 million guaranteed, which will be paid out through the 2015 season.
Palmer’s 2014 season ends with him throwning for 1,626 yards while completing 62.9 percent of his passes to go along with 11 touchdowns andthree interceptions over the course of five games.
Drew Stanton will obviously be the team’s starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.
Lindely, 25, was taken in the sixth round by the Cardinals during 2012 NFL draft. He appeared in six games for Arizona during his rookie season and completed 52 percent of his passes for 752 yards to go along with no touchdowns and seven interceptions.
