The Huddersfield prop was penalised and put on report by referee Richard Silverwood following the challenge that left the ball-carrying Gardner unconscious shortly before half-time.
The game was held up for eight minutes while medical staff administered oxygen to Gardner who was carried from the field on a stretcher with his head in a neck brace.
Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson told a post-match press conference that Gardner had fallen into Mullally's tackle after losing his footing on the newly-laid turf.
And, on Tuesday, the Rugby Football League's match-review panel agreed with Anderson.
A statement issued by the RFL read: "The player makes a legitimate attempt to tackle by wrapping his arms around his opponent who falls significantly into contact."
The 29-year-old Gardner recovered quickly in the dressing room at half-time and was able to travel back to St Helens on the team coach.
A St Helens spokesman said he "will be monitored" and will need to pass the regulation medical tests before being considered for Sunday's home game against Bradford.
