Arizona Cardinals: Carson Palmer injured and out
By Scott Allen
Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback Carson Palmer left Sunday’s game in London early due to a left arm injury
This is possible it. Have we seen the last of Carson Palmer in an Arizona Cardinals uniform? He injured his left arm late in the first half against the Los Angeles Rams.
Palmer was seen jogging to the locker room after coming off an interception, a play in which Palmer got hit hard. Drew Stanton entered the game and looked awful.
As for Palmer, the only thing we know officially right now is that he is out for the rest of Sunday’s game with a left arm injury. There are rumors he may have broken his wrist.
If Palmer did in fact break his wrist, then his season and possibly his career is over. There is a chance he could return but with the future needing attention now, chances don’t look good for that.

For now, this is putting the horse before the cart until we know anything officially. If Palmer is indeed out for the season, it would be the second time in four seasons, the Rams have been the team to end it for him. Palmer suffered a torn ACL in November 2014 against the Rams.
Palmer was scrambling for his life again on Sunday. The offensive line reverted back to their old ways but credit Palmer for avoiding several sacks.
The Cardinals all but abandoned the run on Sunday. They opted to start throwing more even when the game was still at 13-0 and they had a chance to get back in it.
We’ll see what happens in the coming days. However it does not seem like good news on Palmer. If Palmer does in fact miss the rest of the season, will it be Stanton or Blaine Gabbert starting?
That will be a discussion we will debate the next two weeks as the Cardinals head into their bye week. They play next at the San Francisco 49ers on November 5th.
