Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Injury lingers, won't need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that Murray (ankle) still is limping but won't require offseason surgery, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

Murray managed to retake the field despite injuring his ankle during Sunday's 18-7 loss to the Rams, but he clearly was hobbled upon doing so in the fourth quarter. That the second-year pro won't require surgery should bode well for his chances of making a full recovery in time for Arizona's offseason program. The 23-year-old emerged as a bonafide fantasy superstar this season, in no small part due to the 819 rushing yards and 11 scores he accumulated on the ground. Murray also took a step forward as a passer, racking up 3,971 yards through the air and a 26:12 TD:INT across 16 contests.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Retakes field, but held scoreless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) completed eight of 11 passes for 87 yards while rushing for three yards on a pair of carries during Sunday's 18-7 loss to the Rams.

Murray had to exit Sunday's contest after absorbing a sack from Los Angeles' Morgan Fox on the opening drive, and he didn't retake the field until the 14:21 mark of the fourth quarter. Powering through his ankle injury, the first-time Pro Bowler demonstrated toughness in attempting to lead his team back in a must-win situation. Murray and the Cardinals' offense couldn't muster any scores over his final two drives, however, with the team's only trip inside Los Angeles' 40-yard line resulting in a blocked field-goal attempt. Arizona bows out of the season with an 8-8 record and no playoff appearance, while Murray boasted a 26:12 TD:INT with 3,971 passing yards. The 23-year-old's 819 rushing yards and 11 rushing scores stand as elite totals among quarterbacks as he enters his third year under contract with the Cardinals in 2021.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Back in Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) returned to Sunday's contest against the Rams.

After Murray injured his ankle on the first drive of the game, he spent most of the next three quarters in the locker room or on the sideline throwing passes and operating a stationary bike while Chris Streveler generated seven points on the next eight possessions. Murray will look to put together a comeback effort.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Picks up ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's road game versus the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Murray emerged from Week 16 with what was termed a lower leg issue, and he now has left the regular-season finale with an injury in that region. He's questionable to return, but if he doesn't rejoin his teammates on the field, Chris Streveler will lead the Cardinals offense.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Leaves field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (undisclosed) went to the locker room during Sunday's road game against the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray hobbled off the field, which may indicate he aggravated the lower leg injury that he sustained Week 16 against the 49ers. While Murray's status is unknown, the Cardinals will hand over the keys to the offense to his backup Chris Streveler.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Puts in full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (leg) practiced fully Wednesday, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

During the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Murray participated in a scrambling drill, a good sign as he works through the lower leg injury he suffered in Saturday's loss to the 49ers. He proceeded to do enough for him to log an uncapped session, setting him up to helm the Cardinals offense, per usual, this weekend against the Rams. In three career matchups versus Los Angeles, Murray has averaged 220.3 passing yards per game while tossing five touchdowns versus four interceptions and turning 11 carries into 43 yards and one score.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Expecting to play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower leg) expects to suit up Sunday against the Rams in Los Angeles, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Murray managed some reps at Wednesday's practice, taking part in a scrambling drill, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Wednesday's injury report will reveal exactly how much work Murray was able to handle, but he appears to be putting himself in a position to play this weekend after sustaining a lower leg issue in last weekend's loss to the 49ers.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Spotted at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower leg) is participating in the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray was spotted taking reps during a scrambling drill, a hint that the lower leg injury he sustained in last weekend's loss to the 49ers isn't a major concern. How well the star signal-caller holds up in practice this week will no doubt play a major role in determining his availability for Sunday's must-win road game against the Rams.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Expected at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower leg) is expected to participate in practice Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Murray suffered what appeared to be a significant lower leg injury on the final drive of last weekend's loss to the 49ers, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury has since said that he's "hopeful" the second-year signal-caller will be available Week 17. If Murray is indeed able to handle at least limited reps to begin the practice week, it will bode well for his chances of facing the Rams on Sunday.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Injury news optimistic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that he's "hopeful" Murray (lower leg) will "be in position to play" against the Rams in Week 17, Kevin Zimmerman of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Kingsbury didn't provide more specifics of Murray's injury, per Zimmerman, other than calling it a lower leg issue. The second-year pro suffered the injury on the final drive of Saturday's 20-12 loss to the 49ers, and while it initially appeared worrisome, it now looks like he's avoided a severe issue. Arizona requires a win over the Rams on Sunday for any chance of getting into the playoffs, so Murray will no doubt do his best to suit up. Of course, if he's not at full health it could impede his vaunted scrambling abilities.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Seemingly escapes severe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (leg), who suffered an injury on the last drive of Saturday's 20-12 loss to the 49ers and stayed down for several moments, is expected to be okay, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Murray was leg-whipped and appeared to be in some pain before being helped off the field by teammates and staff, though he stayed on the sideline rather than going to the locker room. Before the injury, he struggled while completing 31 of 50 pass attempts for 247 yards (4.9 yards per attempt) with one interception and no touchdowns. He added 75 yards on eight carries but also took three sacks in this disappointing performance. Murray will certainly undergo testing over the next couple of days to determine the severity of the issue, but as of right now he should be expected to suit up for next Sunday's regular-season finale against the Rams.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Notches new career high in yardage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray completed 27 of 36 pass attempts for 406 yards, three touchdowns and one interception while carrying eight times for 29 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 33-26 win over the Eagles.

Murray completed 75 percent of his passes and averaged a stellar 11.3 yards per attempt as he notched a new career high in yardage. He completed five passes of 25 yards or longer and connected with DeAndre Hopkins for the decisive 20-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Murray, who averaged just 195.7 yards per game over the last three while struggling through a shoulder issue, has seemingly gotten back on track. He will look to build on this effort next Saturday against the 49ers.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Modest numbers in easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray completed 24 of 35 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Giants. He added 47 yards on 13 rushing attempts.

Arizona's offense has struggled near the goal line recently, and those issues continued in this game, as Murray capped the team's opening drive with a fourth-down incompletion from New York's one-yard line. He finally guided the offense across the goal line on Arizona's fourth red-zone possession of the first half, finding Dan Arnold in the back of the end zone with a rainbow from seven yards out. New York's defense did a good job of limiting Murray's running lanes, but it was still encouraging to see him come within one rushing attempt of his season high after logging only five in each of the previous three games. The dual-threat quarterback has a 23:10 TD:INT to go with 10 rushing scores heading into a Week 15 home date with the Eagles.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Tosses three TDs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray completed 21 of 39 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Rams.

While he found the end zone three times with his arm, it was otherwise another disappointing effort from Murray, as his INT was taken the other way for a 35-yard TD by Troy Hill late in the fourth quarter while the Cards were trying to mount a comeback. Perhaps more distressingly for anyone with fantasy shares in the second-year QB, he once again produced little on the ground, gaining only 15 rushing yards on five carries. Until his shoulder is closer to 100 percent, Murray's scrambling opportunities will likely remain capped, giving him shaky value heading into Week 14's clash with a Giants defense that just stifled Russell Wilson.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (right shoulder) practiced fully Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Murray is tending to an injury to his right throwing shoulder, which capped his practice reps Wednesday. That said, he handled all of them one day later, allowing him to gear up for Sunday's matchup against a Rams pass defense that has mostly contained opposing quarterbacks this season (203.5 yards given up per game, third in the NFL).

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Puts in limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray continues to get weekly maintenance of his right shoulder after injuring it in a Nov. 19 loss at Seattle. Ahead of last week's loss to New England, he logged limited showings on the first two injury reports before practicing in full Friday. Murray continued his streak of playing every offensive snap in the contest, but he also fell shy of 200 yards passing for the third time this season and failed to throw or run for a touchdown. Assuming he follows a similar practice regimen this week, he'll be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: No TDs in Week 12 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray completed 23 of 34 passes for 170 yards and an interception while adding five carries for 31 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Patriots.

Murray had a would-be touchdown to KeeSean Johnson just before halftime ruled short on replay, and the Cardinals ended up going without points on the drive after another tough spot went against them on the next play. Tipped passes have been a problem recently for the diminutive quarterback, and he was intercepted on such a play in the third quarter, leading to New England's go-ahead touchdown on the ensuing possession. Murray was held to fewer than 200 passing yards for the third time this season, and this is the first time he failed to find the end zone. Bouncing back from this season-worst performance won't be easy with the stingy Rams defense coming to town in Week 13.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after logging limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday. It's still possible the AC joint injury has some impact on his performance, but the Cardinals don't seem too worried about it, nor did Murray when he was asked about his shoulder after last week's loss to Seattle. He's locked in as one of the top fantasy options at QB, with his running ability creating A+ upside even when Murray is imperfect as a passer.

Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals GM Steve Keim expects Murray (shoulder) to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray downplayed the impact of an AC joint injury in his throwing shoulder after last Thursday's loss to the Seahawks, but he's been limited in practice so far this week. It sounds like he's on track to play, even if his arm strength won't quite be at the usual level.

November 26, 2020 04:40 PM
Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Murray toughed out an AC joint injury in his right throwing shoulder during last Thursday's loss at Seattle, but he still managed 269 yards and two touchdowns through the air. On the ground, though, he recorded season lows with five carries for 15 yards. With back-to-back capped practices to begin Week 12 prep, he doesn't seem to be in danger of missing Sunday's game at New England. Friday's injury report could clarify his status.
