Palmer's Knee Injury Worse Than First Thought
Three Ligaments Torn; Tendon Dislocated
CINCINNATI -- Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer's knee injury is worse than previously thought, News 5 Sports Director Ken Broo reported.
Dr. Lonnie Paulos, who operated on Palmer in Houston, said the quarterback tore three knee ligaments, not just two, and dislocated his patella tendon, which keeps the knee cap in its proper place.
Paulos thinks Palmer can beat the nine-month goal to get back on the field but admitted that it'll be tricky.
"This is a big deal," he said. "I mean, it's many times a career-ending injury for some athletes. … You can put things back together, but they have to heal and rehab properly."
Palmer will work on rehabilitation in Los Angeles.
