Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is expected to be out at least eight weeks, after breaking his arm during Sunday’s 33-0 loss to the Rams.
The news was announced by coach Brue Arians just after the game.
“Carson will have surgery on his arm,” Arians said. “His arm is broken.”
Palmer left the game with 5:48 remaining in the second quarter after being hit by Los Angeles’ Alec Ogletree while throwing an interception.
Drew Stanton was called in to replace Palmer. Arians later said that he is confident in Station and that he will be their QB going forward:
“Drew’s played and won a lot of games for us,” Arians said. “All the confidence in he and Blaine (Gabbert) to step up and take over the quarterback job.”
