Palmer is back from a season-ending torn ACL suffered in a game last November. He took snaps and made throws in 11-on-11 drills on Tuesday, the first day of the Arizona Cardinals' three-day minicamp. Palmer admitted to feeling rusty, though he did make some strong and accurate deep throws. He felt effects from the long layoff and a lack of action in his footwork, particularly on running plays, and facing pass rush pressure and coverage.
The Cardinals went 11-5 last season and made the playoffs, but with Palmer as the starter they were 6-0. The knee injury came in a non-contact situation in the fourth quarter against the St. Louis Rams.
