Cardinals QB Carson Palmer Has Torn ACL, Heading To I.R.


Cardinals HC Bruce Arians announced Monday that QB Carson Palmer does in fact have a torn ACL and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve, per Mike Jurecki.

  • Arians did confirm that there was no other damage to Palmer’s knee other than ACL, per Kent Somers.

Unfortunately, all indications pointed to a torn ACL for Palmer. Drew Stanton stepped in for Palmer and helped them put away the Rams on Sunday, but there is a chance that they could bring in another quarterback in the coming days.

Jason La Canfora mentioned earlier in the day that the Cardinals could re-sign QB Dennis Dixon, who was with the team just a few weeks ago while Palmer was dealing with a nerve issue in his shoulder.

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.
