Report: Cardinals Fear Carson Palmer Has Torn ACL

The Arizona Cardinals have the best record in football but maybe in store for an uncertain future after quarterback Carson Palmer suffered a knee injury.

According to NFL.com, the Cardinals fear Palmer may have torn his ACL during Sunday’s 31-14 win over the St. Louis Rams – just days after the former Bengal quarterback signed a three-year, $50 million contract.

Palmer famously tore his ACL in the 2005 AFC playoffs, when Pittsburgh’s Kimo Von Oelhoffen hit the USC product low and caused significant damage to Palmer’s right knee.

The NFC, which was already up for grabs, potentially will settle into a hot mess because of Palmer’s latest injury. San Francisco and Seattle, who are struggling this season, may finally sneak back into the NFC West race as a result.

Arizona may be able to salvage the season but their hopes of becoming the first team ever to host a Super Bowl just took a major blow.
