SJ - November 6, 2021
Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray suffered an ankle injury during the team's first loss of the season to the Packers last week. You know, the game where A.J. Green's controller got disconnected or whatever happened to him.
Murray was unable to practice all week due to the injury and will be a true game time decision on Sunday when the Cardinals take on the 49ers. Arizona's general manager Steve Keim made it clear that even if Murray can go, he might be held out of the game.
"I know Kyler can play, he extremely tough, and I don't think there are any questions in our organization internally about his mental makeup or his willingness to play through anything," Keim said during an appearance on the "Burns and Gambo" show on 98.7, Arizona's Sports Station. "We have to be smart whether he is going to play or not and think about the big picture. We have to make sure we don't re-aggravate something or do something that is going to hurt us later in the season. I know we will do the right thing and go through the checks and balances process and make sure the right decision is made."
If Murray is unable to go the NFL world will be treated to a Colt McCoy game. That's right, he's still in the league and he's the Cardinals backup.
I hope Murray's okay, but I'm also rooting for a Colt McCoy game. The league is more fun with Colt on the field.
