 CINCINNATI (AP) -Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer will limit his throwing during practice this week to rest his sore elbow, hoping to be ready for the New York Jets on Sunday.
Palmer strained his right elbow in a loss to the Giants on Sept. 21, when his arm was hit while he threw a pass. He sat out a 20-12 loss to Cleveland the following week, when backup Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions and fumbled.
He didn't participate in passing drills the first two days of practice last week, giving the elbow time to heal. He threw on Friday and played in a 33-21 loss at Dallas that left the Bengals at the bottom of the NFL with an 0-5 record. Palmer said his elbow came through that game without problem.
``Probably go with the same approach as last week and hopefully be ready to play on Sunday,'' Palmer said Wednesday. ``Throw as little as possible and let it rest as much as possible, and make a decision later in the week and see what the doctors say.''
ption against the Cowboys. Several of his passes were uncharacteristically off the mark. Palmer said the elbow injury didn't affect his throwing, but made him more cautious about what he tried to do.
``There were a couple times where I didn't have the confidence I normally have, just because my arm's not the same as previous to the injury,'' he said. ``As far as throwing balls, I felt like I missed a couple of throws I shouldn't have missed. But the only thing I noticed was just a little less confidence in throwing some. I saw holes (in the coverage) in certain spots that I kind of held back on and moved on to the next guy.''
