The “holiday bug” that bit Kyler Murray hasn't quite let go of the Arizona Cardinals quarterback. Murray missed practice on Thursday for the second straight day with an illness, putting his status for Sunday's matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles in greater jeopardy.

Murray didn't practice with the Cardinals on Wednesday, but head coach Jonathan Gannon—in his first season with Arizona after previously serving as the Eagles' defensive coordinator—didn't seem too concerned about the fifth-year pro's illness while speaking with reporters before his team took the field.

“Kyler's under the weather,” Gannon casually told reporters, per Tyler Drake of Arizona Sports. “Got the holiday bug, so he will not be out there.”

Murray has given the Cardinals offense a much-needed jolt since making his 2023 debut after missing the first nine games of the season while continuing to recover from a torn ACL. He's thrown for 1,305 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions while completing 62.3% of his passes in the last six games, also adding 187 yards and three scores on the ground.

Arizona, just 3-12 on the season at large, is 2-4 with Murray under center. The team has averaged 20.7 points per game over that stretch, an unspectacular number still far better than its 16.8 average during the first nine games of 2023.

Kyler Murray's official status for Week 17 is currently unspecified. If illness prevents him from playing, expect rookie fifth-round pick Clayton Tune to start against the Eagles.

Arizona and Philadelphia are set to kickoff on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. (PT) from Lincoln Financial Field.
