When the Rams visit the Cardinals tomorrow, they might be without their starting quarterback. Kyler Murray may not play in Arizona’s Week 10 game, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, who also tweets that Arizona could be in the same situation.
Fowler mentions that he will check Murray’s hamstring problem before the game, which is what Murray is currently suffering with. However, there is’skepticism’ that he will be able to play. The 25-year-credibility old’s is officially questioned.
Murray had high expectations going into the 2022 season, his fourth in the league. These were influenced by his five-year, $230.5MM agreement signed this offseason in addition to his expertise and position as a previous No. 1 overall choice in the draft.
That agreement, which initially featured a contentious study clause, arrived shortly after general manager Steve Keim and head coach Kliff Kingsbury were re-upped.
None of the three members’ plans for 2022 have come to fruition. The Cardinals, who have a 3-6 record and are in the middle of the pack in most offensive metrics, are currently last in the NFC West. The team’s inability to establish a rhythm led Kingsbury to acknowledge last month that he might give up his role as play-caller. The mediocre output has been attributed to a number of absences in the receiving corps, notably DeAndre Hopkins’ PED ban and Marquise Brown’s foot injury.
Regarding Murray, the former Sooner has 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions so far this season. His rating of 86.9 and yards per attempt average (6.0) are also career lows. He continues to be productive on the ground, gaining 359 yards and two touchdowns, but his inconsistent play in the passing game has raised questions about the Cardinals’ choice to spend a high sum of money on him.
