KFFL Breaking News
Doctor says Palmer's Knee Injury was Devestating; but notes Palmer could be ready for Season Opener

Updating ongoing reports, Associated Press reports the knee injury suffered by Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer (knee) could be career threatening. His surgeon said Thursday, Jan. 12, that the injury was "devastating and potentially career-ending," involving numerous ligament tears, a shredded ligament, damaged cartilage and a dislocated kneecap. "It's not just like it was a torn ACL," Dr. Lonnie Paulos said Thursday, Jan. 12, in a phone interview from Houston.

"It's a magnitude more difficult to recover from and repair. It can and has ended careers, without a doubt. However, I feel very comfortable with Carson as an athlete and the heart that he's got. In the end, that's the bottom line. I can see the look in his eye already. He's ready to get going." The surgeon said the injury was off the chart. "On a scale of one to three, it was a four," he said. "It was off the chart. It was pretty badly damaged - shredded is the better term." If rehabilitation goes well, Palmer could be running in a couple of months and might be able to play in the first regular season game, Paulos said

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Poor guy. I feel bad for him. I also feel bad for the Bengals. I guess I see them as what the Saints could have been this season compared to the last few years. I hope he fully recovers
