ARIZONA CARDINALS Cardinals’ Carson Palmer early training camp winner

Aug 4, 2015, 12:22 PM

A lot will be resting on Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer’s shoulders (notably, his right shoulder) entering the 2015 season.

That, and his surgically repaired left knee.

Despite the injury concerns, writer Gregg Rosenthal has listed Palmer as one his early winners during training camp so far.

Palmer has been practicing with no restrictions, which is a positive development coming off a torn ACL. It’s also easy to forget Palmer had a shoulder injury which limited his throws while he was on the field last year. Palmer, coach Bruce Arians and multiple reporters say the ball is coming out of Palmer’s hands better in camp thus far.

Palmer went 6-0 last year before injuries ended his season early. He threw for 1,626 yards and 11 touchdowns with three interceptions, and has gone 13-2 in his last 15 starts in a Cardinals uniform.

The 35-year-old quarterback is coming off of his second torn ACL in a career in which he has thrown for 35,365 yards and 224 touchdowns and earned two Pro Bowl nods.
