Missing Back-To-Back Practices: Carson Palmer Injured Throwing Shoulder Against The Steelers

It was odd in 2008. During the Bengals 26-23 overtime loss against the New York Giants, quarterback Carson Palmer completed 27 of 39 passes for 286 yards passing and a touchdown. The significance of the game was that Palmer had injured his elbow just enough to cause soreness, forcing him to sit out the following week against the Cleveland Browns after being listed as questionable heading into that weekend. The soreness would eventually be diagnosed as a partially torn ligament and tendon in his throwing elbow and Palmer, after a valiant effort against the Dallas Cowboys, would be benched for the season.

According to Joe Reedy, "Palmer said that he injured his right (throwing) shoulder during one of the four times he was sacked in Monday night’s 27-21 loss to Pittsburgh."

As a result the Bengals "franchise" quarterback has missed his second practice in as many days. Will he play on Sunday?

“I’m definitely going to go but just getting a couple days of rest on it and be ready to roll on Sunday (at Indianapolis),” Palmer said. “I’m just going to rest it up and get ready for Sunday.”

Not that Palmer, or God himself, would turn around the Bengals 2-6 season into a playoff contender. However, that doesn't lessen our want to see the team win ever week and Carson Palmer gives the Bengals the best chances to succeed.
