Carson Palmer Leaves Game with Apparent Knee Injury

Just days after signing a three-year, $50 million extension, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer exited the team’s game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon with an apparent knee injury.


Despite Palmer clutching his ankle, reports from Fox indicates that it’s some sort of knee injury. After returning to the sideline, Palmer was carted off to the locker room for further evaluation.

Drew Stanton replaced him in the lineup.
