Cardinals QB Kyler Murray’s injury status ahead of Patriots clash, revealed
As part of a conference call with the media on Wednesday, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury was asked to provide an update on quarterback Kyler Murray, who was injured in last Thursday’s overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
“We’re going to see today how he progresses,” Kingsbury said in a conference call with New England reporters, via nesn.com. “I feel positive, but we want to make sure he’s feeling able to play his game and play at a high level and do the things that he feels comfortable doing out there. So we’ll see how today goes and kind of take it from there.”
Murray is recovering from a shoulder injury. A defender fell on the former Oklahoma standout awkwardly in the first quarter. The Cardinals star was later seen wincing in pain as he warmed up on the sideline, but he remained in the game.
Kyler Murray completed 29-of-42 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals’ 28-21 loss to the Seahawks. Larry Fitzgerald led the team in receptions with eight for 62 yards. Kenyan Drake was Arizona’s leading rusher, with 11 carries for 29 yards and one touchdown.
Murray was limited in Tuesday’s practice session, but he says he feels fine:
“I feel good,” Murray said, via the Cardinals’ official website and nesn.com. “Obviously got nicked up a little bit the past couple weeks, but I feel good. I feel fine.”
Though he’s recovering, Murray is expected to be available for the Cardinals’ upcoming game against the New England Patriots. Kick-off is set for 1:00 p.m. ET, with FOX having live broadcast coverage.
