Palmer 7-for-11 in Preseason Loss to Saints 17-7

Carson Palmer, playing for the first time since an elbow injury sidelined him early last season, completed seven of 11 passes for 133 yards in Cincinnati’s loss to New Orleans.

Palmer’s only mistake came on Jonathan Vilma’s interception. Palmer left the game late in the first quarter, moments after his quick sideline throw to Chad Ochocinco produced a 55-yard gain. Palmer was playing with a mild left ankle sprain at that point, but he said afterward the injury was minor.

Jeremy Shockey caught his first touchdown pass as a Saint, a 22-yarder between two defenders from Drew Brees. Mark Brunell also threw a scoring pass for the Saints, a 64-yarder to Robert Meachem.
