Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Ellington, Carson Palmer all injured in Arizona Cardinals win

Wesley Hitt

Key players could be banged up for a huge Week 16 battle in Seattle.

The Arizona Cardinals won on Sunday, but the win came with some injuries. Three very important offensive pieces were hurt in the win -- receiver Larry Fitzgerald, running back Andre Ellington and quarterback Carson Palmer.

Fitzgerald has the most serious injury -- a head injury that could be (and appears to be) a concussion. He suffered the injury on the onside kick the Titans recovered before their game-tying touchdown at the end of regulation. He jumped up high to catch the ball and got his hands on it, but was upended and then took a helmet to his helmet, losing the ball.

He will go through the league's concussion protocol and will have to be medically cleared to be able to play. He will not be able to "tough this one out."

Ellington, according to head coach Bruce Arians, suffered a thigh bruise. It was serious enough that it kept him out of the team's game-winning drive in overtime.

Quarterback Carson Palmer also hurt his ankle early in the game. he did not come out. Arians said postgame that it is a high ankle sprain that he played through with heavy taping.

The first injury report will not come out until Wednesday, so it will be a few days until we know more, unless Arians shares additional information in Monday's meeting with the media.
