Carson Palmer might be out longer than expected

Carson Palmer’s injury in Arizona might be worse than originally thought. Today Ed Werder of ESPN is reporting that Palmer is having a hard time to grip a ball even.

@Edwerderespn: #Cardinals QB Carson Palmer tells me nerve injury in his shoulder prevents him from properly gripping or throwing football right now

Palmer suffered a nerve injury in his throwing shoulder in week one against San Diego Chargers and isn’t sure when he will be able to return.

“They said my shoulder was stretched out and I landed on the nerve, shut the nerve down,” Palmer said, via The Arizona Republic. “It’s just one of those things you’ve just got to wait and hope it wakes up. There’s no, ‘it needs 48 hours. It needs six days, it needs 12 days.’ You just don’t know.”
