Palmer came into the game with a knee injury, but his exact injury is still uncertain, but it did look like a knee. He will likely be replaced by Quentin Johnston while he is being attended to.

Palmer had the best game of his career last week against the Chiefs when he caught 5-of-7 targets for 133 yards. And ever since Mike Williams’ season-ending injury, Palmer has played well, topping 60 receiving yars in his last four games.
