The Arizona Cardinals came back to the defeat the St. Louis Rams 31-14 but may have lost QB Carson Palmer for the season. Palmer is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left knee Monday but the Cardinals fear that Palmer has a torn ACL which would end his 2014 campaign.
Backup Drew Stanton, who started three games earlier this year, came in and rallied Arizona but the win would certainly come at a cost should tests confirm the injury. Palmer suffered the same injury to the same knee back in 2006 with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Earlier this week, the Cardinals signed Palmer to a three-year contract extension that included $20 million guaranteed.
