Although quarterback Carson Palmer finished his Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, he likely did so in some pretty severe pain.

Arizona placed Palmer on the injury report for the Cardinals’ Week 14 matchup, which was a shock to some since Palmer did finish the game and didn’t seem to be dealing with an injury at any point. Yes, some balls were severely underthrown, but those were assumed to be poor throws.

However, they could have been more than that as posted a picture of Palmer’s elbow bending awkwardly backwards, which is likely the reason that he appears on the injury report.

Palmer appeared to be cocking his arm forwards to throw a pass, but had his arm hit from behind, causing the strange bend:

That’s how the Cardinals injury report on Wednesday read. The report was distributed after players and coach Bruce Arians were available to media, so the seriousness of Palmer’s injury is unknown.

His status for Week 14 is undecided, though the team isn’t overly concerned with the injury.
