Arizona Cardinals injuries: Carson Palmer feels good, AZ comes out of win 'clean'

A look at the injury situation for the Arizona Cardinals.

After the loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 5, there was a laundry list of injuries, including two players who went on injured reserve.

After their Week 6 win over the Washington Redskins, it is a much different story.

Head coach Bruce Arians told the media (via Arizona Sports) "we came out of the ballgame really clean." There were no injuries that should cause players to lose any time.

He noted on the radio on Arizona Sports that Frostee Rucker's calf and Andre Ellington's foot are the really the only significant "bumps and bruises," but those injuries will be an issue all season.

Perhaps the most important question was how Carson Palmer was feeling a day after throwing 44 times in the win after not having played several weeks. Arians said Palmer was "real good."

"I was concerned until I saw him today," Arians said when he was asked about his concern for his starting QB's health after the game. "Now he feels great, so we should be able to just get better and better and get stronger."

Palmer will be able to do "hopefully everything" in practice this week as the team prepares to face the Oakland Raiders, Palmer's former team, on Sunday.

Defensive end Calais Campbell, who was slated to miss one to three weeks with an MCL strain, likely won't be able to play this weekend. Arians said, "There's a chance, but it's a very slim one, I think."

It's good to see the Cardinals finally stay healthy after a game. Hopefully we can have a few more weeks like this one.
