He will have surgery when the team returns to Arizona, coach Bruce Arians said after the game. Arians expects Palmer to miss at least eight weeks and might be lost for the season.

Palmer was injured on an interception in the second quarter after taking a hit from Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree just after releasing the ball. The pass was intercepted by Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner.

Palmer was 10 of 18 for 122 yards and the one interception when he left the game. The Rams led 23-0 at halftime and went on to post a 33-0 victory.

Drew Stanton, a 10-year NFL veteran, replaced Palmer.
