Carson Palmer trying everything he can to wake up nerve in shoulder


Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer missed Week Two because of a nerve problem in his right shoulder and he’s still being bothered by it this week.

It’s not for a lack of trying to find ways to alleviate the issue. Palmer told reporters that he has tried methods including electrical stimulation, acupuncture and dry needling in hopes of waking up what he’s described as a dead nerve. While the arm is feeling better, Palmer doesn’t know when it will feel well enough for him to resume a full schedule.

“I wish I had a concrete answer or somebody knew exactly what to do to wake it up,” Palmer said, via the Arizona Republic. “The only answer is time, and I’m hoping it doesn’t take any more time.”

With Palmer still ailing, Drew Stanton is in line to make a second straight start for Arizona when the 49ers come calling on Sunday. The team’s faith in Stanton is high after he led them to a win over the Giants, but they’d gladly send him back to the bench should Palmer stumble on the right therapy for his shoulder.

    Might be his sign it’s time to hang it up. To be honest, I’m not sure why he’s still playing. He has enough money to live well for 10 lifetimes… why not stay healthy enough to enjoy it?

    Unfortunately he won’t be able to take any HGH to help this time.

    Has he tried throwing cold water on it or playing loud music?

    That doesn’t sound good. That actually sounds like an injury that could end a QB’s career, let alone his season, at his age.
