After these comments by coach Kingsbury, it has been reported (but not confirmed) that Murray likely tore his ACL.
For the rest of the 2022 NFL season, the Cardinals will likely be led by long-time NFL veteran Colt McCoy.
In relief of Murray last night, McCoy was 27-40, resulting in 246 yards and one interception.
The Cardinals lost this game to the New England Patriots, 27-13.
What’s Next For Murray And The Cardinals?
After losing to the Patriots last night, the Cardinals have a 4-9 record on the season and are all but officially eliminated from the playoffs.
With upcoming games against the Denver Broncos, Tampa Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons, and San Francisco 49ers, the Cardinals have a chance to play spoiler to teams still looking to claim their playoff tickets.
For all intents and purposes, the Cardinals are looking ahead to the 2023 campaign.
With any luck, Murray will be back, and fully healthy to start next season.
When on the field, Murray has proven that he is a worthy starter in the NFL.
In his four seasons in the league, Murray has thrown for 13,848 yards, 84 touchdowns, and 41 interceptions.
He has also added 2,204 yards and 23 touchdowns with his rushing abilities.
The Cardinals produce their best product when Murray is on the field.
Will he be able to turn it around after what looks like a torn ACL injury?
