Palmer said he wasn't worried about his health moving forward.
"Nah. Nah. Just cramping," Palmer told reporters. "A number of long, long-play drives, just a little dehydration, a little cramp."
The Arizona starting quarterback completed 23 of his 34 throws along with the one touchdown. His solid performance gave the team a much-needed boost following a 2-3 start.
It's fair to wonder if Palmer could have returned if it was a tighter contest. With the Cardinals up four possessions in the fourth quarter, there was no need to risk putting him back in.
