The Arizona Cardinals are heading into Week 10 with one player who has a concerning injury.
While the injury is minor, the injured player is a critical component for Arizona.
So which Cardinals player is hurt and how bad is their injury?
Ian Rapoport Gives Scoop On Who’s Dealing With An Injury In Arizona
Ian Rapoport announced on Wednesday that Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is dealing with a hamstring injury.
#AZCardinals QB Kyler Murray is considered day-to-day with his hamstring injury, source said. Not nothing. But not catastrophic. Stay tuned this week.

Some are shocked by the announcement, but it’s serious.
With this injury, it’s possible Murray could miss some playing time.
While Murray’s injury is “day-to-day,” it can change if he feels his injury isn’t minor.
However, the Cardinals might be better off resting Murray in during their Week 10 matchup.
With the Los Angeles Rams putting quarterback Matthew Stafford into the concussion protocol, the Cardinals will be on even footing without Murray.
While Rapoport says the injury isn’t “catastrophic,” it’s still a concern to monitor.
With the Cardinals’ season going poorly, they need a healthy Murray to give them opportunities to win games.
It’s clear the young QB is the franchise’s best hope on offense.
However, given the situation with their opponent going into their matchup, resting Murray might be the best option.
They can’t afford to lose their franchise QB for a longer period, much like they did last year.
That’s why this injury can easily turn into a nightmare if the team doesn’t handle it properly.
