Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer won’t need surgery to repair his injured elbow. Palmer had an MRI near the end of the season, and Benglas PR director Jack Brennan said that it revealed that the healing process had started on its own.
“We did get back those late exam results that (Palmer) had made reference to, and the word is that — as Marvin had stated he expected — the results continue to indicate No. 9 will heal without surgery in time for full 2009 offseason work,” said Brennan.
Palmer injured his elbow during a September 21st loss to the Giants and last played on October 5th against the Cowboys. He began throwing a football in early December and should be ready to go when training camp begins this summer.
