Just days after signing a three-year contract extension, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer may have suffered a torn ACL.
According to ESPN.com, the team fears their QB torn the ACL in his left Knee during Sunday’s (Nov. 9) game against the St. Louis Rams. He has to undergo more tests to determine the extent of his injury.
“We don’t know anything about Carson’s injury or the length or whatever it is yet,” coach Bruce Arians said following Arizona’s 31-14 victory. “It is obviously a knee, but he will be evaluated and get an MRI and everything, and we’ll know something more hopefully by Tuesday.”
Palmer was injured in the fourth quarter Sunday after being sacked by Rams safety Mark Barron.
The injury comes two days after he he signed a three-year contract extension worth a reported $50 million, including $20.5 million guaranteed.
