Week 8’s matchup between the Cardinals and the Packers didn’t disappoint…but Kyler Murray did. While Murray did put up 274 yards on 22/33 passing, he also threw no touchdowns and 2 interceptions, including the game-sealing one with 12 seconds remaining in the 4th quarter. Although, that last one looked like a miscommunication with his receiver. Either way, Murray was struggling at the end of the game, largely in part due to a Grade 1 ankle sprain he suffered on the Cardinals final drive. After the game, Murray was seen in a walking boot leaving the game on Thursday. While we have predicted his Healthy to Return Date to be Week 10, Cardinals Coach Kliff Kinsbury has added that “He [Murray] has played in games where he wasn’t able to really do his entire repertoire, if you will, to showcase his talents,” which means we could see him in Week 9 when the 7-1 Cardinals travel to San Francisco to take on the 3-4 49ers. Murray did not practice on Wednesday and may continue to sit all week, but he’s a guy who can start on Sunday without taking any practice reps.
