QB Palmer says hamstring issue was cramping

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Carson Palmer left Monday night’s 28-3 win over the New York Jets in the fourth quarter with a hamstring issue the team initially described as a strain but which the Arizona quarterback later attributed to cramping.

Palmer blamed the cramps on the Cardinals’ extended time of possession.

“A number of long, long-play drives,” Palmer said. “Just a little dehydration, a little cramp.”
