Carson Palmer: "I'm not thinking about my knee"-- Thu Jul 16 6:15 pm --
Completing rehab from ACL tear, building rapport with John Brown
As it was last year, Carson Palmer has brought WR John Brown to southern California to live with him and work out. And as it was last year, Palmer feels he is throwing well, sharpening his mental game - and feeling no problems with his knee. ďIím not even thinking about my knee,Ē Palmer said. ďIím still rehabbing just to be on the safe side of things but I donít need to be at rehab. Iím full go in the weight room, full go on the field, and until itís brought up, I havenít thought about what Iím not doing because Iím doing everything I was doing.Ē(azcardinals.com)
FF Today's Take:The report is as much a thumbs-up on Palmer's state of mind as it is another reminder that Brown is poised for a breakout season if his close friend can stay healthy. Palmer, who was limited to six games in 2014, could have thrown for 4,336 yards and 29 touchdowns had he maintained his per-game average over 16 contests. Brown went 20-315-3 in Palmer's six games under center, suggesting he will have no problem building upon his 48-696-5 line as a rookie.
