Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer came into Sunday’s game with a right elbow injury that has limited him in practice the last couple of weeks and he left it with another part of his body aching as well.
Palmer was hit low by Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley early in the game, drawing a flag for roughing the passer and forcing Palmer to get a hurried tape job on his left ankle when he returned to the bench. Palmer never came out of the 37-34 overtime victory, but coach Bruce Arians said after the game that the quarterback had suffered a high ankle sprain that impacted the Cardinals’ offensive approach.
“He’ll be pretty sore tomorrow … that took a lot of our game plan, a lot of our play-action passes from us,” Arians said, via ArizonaSports.com. “He’s a tough customer. He wasn’t coming out of there.”
Palmer finished the day 20-of-30 for 231 yards and a touchdown and didn’t throw an interception for the fourth time in the last five games, so the injury wasn’t too big a stumbling block for him on the day. We’ll find out this week how Palmer’s ankle fared once the tape came off and whether he’ll be in the lineup when the team goes to Seattle in Week 16.
