Insider Releases Promising Little Report On The Status Of Cardinals Kyler Murray.
On the night of November 13, an NFL insider posted an injury update regarding a prominent Arizona Cardinals figure.
Correspondent Ian Rapoport of the NFL NetworkThe Cardinals is “pessimistic” that quarterback Kyler Murray will play the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. Veteran Colt McCoy would start in his place.
Arizona will give Murray a shot as he wants to do it “on a seasonal basis.”
Murray attended the Friday portion of the practice that was open to the media. It was Murray’s first appearance since his ankle injury in the final series of the Week 8 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
NFL insider Mike Garafolo returned to Murray’s office on Friday but that “there is still work for him to improve” and agrees with Rapoport that McCoy will start over.
Sources said Adam Schefter, ESPN NFL reporter That doesn’t sound promising for Murray. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will be the least likely to play due to a hamstring injury and Rondale Moore will be the most likely to play, struggling with neck injuries/concussions.
On November 10, Cardinals reporter Darren Urban first reported that Murray had made “insane” progress on his ankle and was confident of playing the Panthers in Week 10.
While the Cardinals are giving Murray a chance to play in Week 10, the situation looks the same as it did last week. That said, their Week 9 win over the San Francisco 49ers shows they can handle the pressure again.
His path to another victory begins with a 35-year-old quarterback.
The team responded emphatically without their best receiver and quarterback on the road against the 49ers and won 31-17.
They will try to end their five-game streak against the Panthers with McCoy. Arizona can repeat its similar approach to make McCoy’s life easier by coaching soccer and finding creative ways to keep the boys open.
McCoy was near perfect in his first start for Arizona, posting a career-high 84.6% of his passes in the win. Now it will start two games in a row for the first time since 2018.
“He is the only one who dines with the coaches from time to time because he treats him like a coach.”
The 35-year-old signed with the Cardinals in GM Steve Keim’s offseason to back Murray, joining his fifth career NFL team and third in as many seasons.
When Keim saw the backup quarterback market, McCoy was his favorite. “Colt has a good reputation as a leader, a guy who’s great in the locker room,” Keim said. “Adding an experienced player who can hopefully have that kind of influence not just in the locker room but also in the quarterback. Kyler is the guy we look forward to. The improvements you made from year one to year two, and now taking the next step into year three, are crucial. Having a guy like Colt McCoy could be beneficial to Kyler, not just on the practice field, but even on game days, what he sees there, the coverage he gets, how the defense plays against us. ”
Unlike last week, McCoy is now available to AJ Green, who was activated from the reserve / COVID list on November 11. Even without Hopkins, Zach Ertz, Green, Christian Kirk, and Rondale Moore are a formidable bunch.
There is one player you can’t forget who can have another shocking day.
