Last week, Ian Rapoport tweeted, “#AZCardinals QB Carson Palmer is slated to have surgery today to repair his broken arm, source said. He hopes for shorter than 8 weeks.” Palmer was placed on injured reserve a few minutes later. With the thought that this might his final NFL season, the veteran is pushing to get back on the field late in the year if the Cardinals are still in the playoff chase. Coming off a bye week, the pressure will be mounting for Drew Stanton to play well in Palmer’s stead.
On Sunday morning, Jay Glazer reported that Andrew Luck’s shoulder is still causing him pain and Luck is seeking further opinions to figure why. Any hope of the star quarterback coming back this season can be extinguished. Further, dynasty owners need to decide whether this is a time to buy or a time to sell. Luck’s dynasty price is depressed due to the shoulder injury but there is no guarantee that the pain will eventually cease.
