NFL Injury Report:
The Oakland Raiders have announced that quarterback Carson
Palmer suffered cracked ribs and a bruised lung during Sundayâ€™s loss to the Carolina
Panthers and the 33-year-old will not play in the teamâ€™s regular season finale,
reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Raiders coach Dennis AllenÂ announced that his
quarterback suffered cracked ribs and a bruised lung during Sundayâ€™s 17-6 lossÂ in
Carolina. Palmer returned to the Bay Area with the team but spent the night at
a hospital. Fun.
Palmer is due $13 million next season, an amount the Raiders
are certainly not going to pay him. Considering his production this year, 4,018
passing yards with 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, and the lack of
quarterbacks expected to be available, Palmer shouldnâ€™t have a hard time finding
a job this offseason.
That is, if he wants to find a job. The veteran could
instead opt for retirement, something heâ€™s considered in the past.
The Raiders have not yet announced who will start in place
of Palmer. Former first-round pick Matt Leinart replaced Palmer against the
Panthers, but Oakland has said that itâ€™s aiming to get Terrelle Pryor more

The Raiders were held without a touchdown for the second straight week but unlike last weekâ€™s victory against the Chiefs, field goals were not enough against the Panthers who put the Raiders away, 17-6.
The Panthersâ€™ team was not significantly better but, despite being called for 10 penalties for 97 yards they were able to capitalize on their red zone trips and their two...
This piece is the second in a few in which I attempt to predict what things will change and what will stay the same for Dennis Allenâ€™s second year coaching the Silver & Black.Â I hope that my predictions turn out to be more accurate than the Mayansâ€™.Â
InÂ a previous piece I went through the coaching staff and predicted that defensive coordinator Jason Tarver would be...
