By James Walker

CINNCINNATI -- Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer said he is scheduled to have surgery to repair ligament damage in his left thumb next week.

The Bengals' season concluded with a 24-14 loss to the New York Jets.

Palmer wore a protective glove on his left hand after injuring the thumb in the fourth quarter of a 17-14 win over Baltimore in October.
