Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has been dealing with an elbow injury that he suffered in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Specifically it happened when Trent Cole stripped sacked him.
Palmer continued to play in the game and did throw for 302 yards. It seems as this injury is not as serious to keep him out of Sunday’s game versus the Rams but it did limit him in Wednesday’s and Thursday’s practices.
According to the Arizona Cardinals team website, Palmer didn’t participate in the regular quarterback throwing drills and only did soft toss passes.
Cardinal fans should not be concerned as it seems that Palmer will try to do some more throwing in practice on Friday.
Other good news for the Cardinals on the injury front is that it seems like wide receiver Michael Floyd and running back Andre Ellington will both be playing on Sunday.
As you remember Ellington did not play last Sunday as he sat out with a knee injury. Him and Floyd both sat out of Wednesday’s practice and were limited participants in Thursday’s practice.
The Cardinals need all three players on the offensive side as Sunday’s game versus the St. Louis Rams is a must win.
