Ian Rapoport on Twitter - [Full Article]

QB Carson Palmer is believed to have torn his ACL, per source. Tests to confirm coming.

Fantasy Impact: 

Palmer went down virtually untouched and immediately reached for the knee. reported the injury is to the same knee Palmer shredded so severely in 2006 that his surgeon deemed the damage a "four" on a "scale of one to three." Palmer had just signed a three-year, $50 million contract extension (with $20 million guaranteed) Friday to provide extra security in the twilight of his career. Drew Stanton takes over as the starter, but it's a hit to the fantasy value of WRs John Brown, Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. Stanton should provide QB2 value for those in need at the position.
