Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was stripped of the ball on a sack by Trent Cole on the third play of last Sunday’s loss to the Eagles, but he went on to play the remainder of the game without any reports of injury.
As it turns out, Palmer injured his right elbow on that play and the injury has been bad enough to keep him limited in practice on both Wednesday and Thursday. Palmer said, via the Cardinals’ website, that he “threw a little bit, not much” during Thursday’s session and that he hopes to do more on Friday.
There’s no talk that Palmer will have to miss Sunday’s visit from the Rams as a result of the injury, but Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports the quarterback said he did feel the effects of the injury during the Eagles game. He finished the day 24-of-41 for 302 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
Assuming Palmer does play, it looks like they’ll have a good chance of having both wide receiver Michael Floyd and running back Andre Ellington in the lineup along with him. Both players joined him as limited participants Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday.
