Carson Palmer faces different ACL tear recovery eight years after first injury

TEMPE, Ariz. — The recovery and rehabilitation Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer remembers after tearing his ACL in 2006 isn’t the same as what he’s about to embark on for the next eight or nine months.

Orthopedic philosophies and rehab techniques have changed in the past eight years, but the toughest part of Palmer’s process, experts say, may be dealing with a second ACL injury at age 34.

“There’s no question that our ability to recondition after an ACL reconstruction will change as we get older,” said Brian Cole, team physician for the Chicago Bulls and Chicago White Sox.
