Carson Palmer misses practice, wears a boot

Carson Palmer, Brian Leonard, Jairus Byrd

It’s a short week for the Bengals, who face the Jets on Thursday night.  And the Bengals practiced on Monday and Tuesday.  And quarterback Carson Palmer practiced on neither day.

To make matters worse, he’s sporting a walking boot on his left foot.

“[It’s] just a sore foot and they just stick you in the boot just to be cautious,” Palmer said Tuesday, according to Kevin Goheen of the Cincinnati Enquirer.  “Today’s Tuesday, essentially, our off-day.  So [it’s] just a precautionary thing.”

Right.  Tuesday’s usually the Bengals’ off day.  But this year the Bengals are getting ready to play on Thursday, and they need to prepare properly.  To prepare properly, they need their quarterback out of a boot and on the practice field.

We’d say it’s cause for concern, but it won’t matter whether the quarterback is Carson Palmer or Jordan Palmer or Arnold Palmer or Robert Palmer in his current condition, the Bengals will have their work cut out for them against the Jets.

    Big Ben wouldn’t have missed that practice I bet… maybe Owens should call out Palmer for being “soft”?

    Cool, a Robert Palmer reference.

    He should be wearing more than a boot playing with Beavis and Butt Head as his wideouts. How about a pair of earplugs and a heavy dose of sedatives. He will certainly need pain killers against the Jets.

    Now if only they could lure UFL and former Browns coach Chris Palmer over to revamp the offense…

    Where is that idiotic Bengals fan who said I made the craziest prediction at the beginning of the year when I predicted they would go 4-11-1 and said Palmer would get injured. Who knew I was giving this team of misfits too much credit saying they would win 4 games.

    Ben can’t miss practice. Gotta keep him busy otherwise his little buddy likes to come out and play. Palmer on the other hand is a classic family man and would never be off raping drunk college chicks. Yeah Ben is soft simply b/c of what he likes to do in his free time. Take advantage of young, drunk girls.

    T.O. looks like your QB is SOFT!

    Funny, I thought the Bengals off day was on Sundays.

    Not one person posted how Palmer is the worst QB in his division. Not one person stated how he has only had one good season in his career despite playing with Pro Bowl caliber talent on the offense his ENTIRE career.

    Wait, you mean the same Ben Roethlisberger who has been called out by his own players and coach in the past for skipping practices with “unknown ailments” or that “sore finger” that was his excuse every time he threw a pick in ’09?

    Really? So then tell me, who were the “pro bowl caliber” talent Palmer played with last season?

    And if you think he has only had one good season, you clearly don’t know much about Palmer or the Bengals. The story of this franchise is Palmer can have great seasons, see ’06 and ’07, and the team still lose thanks to poor defense and coaching.

    Colt McCoy is the worst in the division.

    and gets the boot? oh, wears a boot.

    Ha! I like that …

    Anyways with all of this “worst quarterback in the division” talk, I think you have to give it to Colt McCoy or Carson Palmer … Either way good for our division to all have a pretty solid option at quarterback … I mean we could all be fans of the NFC West where their best Quarterback option is the inexperienced rookie.

    Palmer had a great season in 06 huhn? You mean 28 TD’ and 13 INT’s? That year the defense allowed 8 teams over 20 points and in al 8 loses Palmer had either a fumble or INT. Yeah great season for Palmer.

    And the 07 season is where Palmer really shined with 26TD and 20 INT. Throwing at least 1 pick in every game played. Yeah he had a great season that year as well. Despite having Ochocinco and Howsyourmomma. The only season he has had that was great was 05 32TD and 12INT yards mean nothing if you are a detriment to your team.
