Cardinals make QB moves amid Kyler Murray’s injury
The Arizona Cardinals have made some roster changes in the quarterback department amid Kyler Murray’s absence. The team announced on Twitter Tuesday that they signed quarterback Trace McSorley and released quarterback Chris Streveler. They also announced the practice squad resigning of long snapper Beau Brinkley and running back Tavien Feaster.

The Cardinals signed McSorley from the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad and backup quarterback Streveler was released as a result. Streveler last took snaps for the team in their crushing 34-10 loss in Week 10 to the Panthers. He threw for 36 yards and six passing completions from nine attempts.
The most consistent quarterback for the Cardinals recently has been Murray’s backup Colt McCoy. He has taken snaps in the last three games for Arizona and thrown three touchdown passes. In Week 11, McCoy led the team to a 23-13 victory against the Seattle Seahawks.
However, it will be interesting to see what the Cardinals work on in the upcoming weeks and who they focus their offense around. They have a BYE week for Week 12, meaning they have extra time to figure out their quarterback situation. Not only that, but the BYE week gives Murray extra time to heal. Murray has been out of commission since suffering a left ankle sprain in Week 8 against Green Bay. He is listed as questionable for the Week 13 matchup against the Bears.
