Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer went down in obvious pain when he was sacked today against the Rams.

Palmer dropped back to pass on a third down and Rams safety Mark Barron came on a blitz and grabbed Palmer by the shoulder. Barron didn’t hit Palmer hard, but Palmer fell awkwardly and appeared to be in pain.

After being attended to by trainers, Palmer walked off the field, continuing to look uncomfortable. It wasn’t clear what type of injury Palmer suffered, but he was put on a cart and taken to the locker room. FOX reported during the game broadcast that trainers were looking at Palmer’s left knee.

The Cardinals trail the Rams 14-10 in the fourth quarter. If Arizona is going to come back, it appears that backup Drew Stanton will have to be the one to make it happen.
