Cardinals Injury Update: Carson Palmer defeats Redskins in return

By on 10/13/2014 09:00:00 PM

Carson Palmer returned to action Sunday for the first time in three games.  Palmer injured a nerve in his right shoulder during the season opener against the San Diego Chargers and was having difficulty throwing the ball up until this point.

Palmer was announced as the starter just before kickoff and went on to throw for 250 yards and two touchdowns; one to Michael Floyd and the other to Larry Fitzgerald.  He was 28 of 44 and did not throw any interceptions leading the Cardinals to 30-20 victory over the Washington Redskins.  The injury Carson Palmer sustained was an axillary nerve contusion, which causes a "dead arm" feeling.  Palmer had been going to specialists looking for a cure for the shoulder but none is available, only time will help.  Palmer and the coaching staff felt good about his chances after his second treatment this week and decided to give him the go.  The Arizona Cardinals, who are 4-1, were able to move up to first place in the NFC West with the win.
