Kyler Murray Back On Practice Field As Cardinals Open 21-Day
Kyler Murray Returns To Practice
Kyler Murray returned to practice for the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, after tearing his ACL in December 2022. Murray was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list at the start of training camp and was not removed ahead of the start of the regular season, ensuring he missed at least the first month of the season.
The Cardinals have designated Murray to return from the PUP list, which means he has a 21-day practice window before the team must place him on the active roster. If Murray is not activated within the 21-day window, he will be ineligible to return to the field this season.
Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said that Murray will be "full go" in practice and has no limitations. Gannon also said that Murray is the one who decided he was ready to practice.
Murray’s Return Is A Boost For The Cardinals
Murray’s return is a major boost for the Cardinals, who have struggled in his absence. The Cardinals are currently 1-5 through six weeks of play.
Murray is a dynamic dual-threat quarterback who can beat teams with his arm and his legs. He is also a leader on the field and helps to elevate the play of his teammates.
With Murray back in the lineup, the Cardinals have a chance to turn their season around. They have a talented roster, and Murray gives them a chance to win every game they play.
Murray’s Return Timeline
It is unclear when Murray will be activated to the active roster. Gannon said that the Cardinals will take it "day-by-day" and evaluate Murray’s progress in practice.
Murray is likely to need at least two weeks of practice before he is ready to play in a game. He may need all three weeks of the practice window to get up to speed.
The Cardinals have a bye in Week 8, so that could be a target date for Murray’s return. However, the Cardinals could also choose to wait until Week 9 to activate Murray, giving him an extra week of practice.
Murray’s Impact On The Cardinals’ Offense
Murray’s return will have a significant impact on the Cardinals’ offense. Murray is a dynamic playmaker who can create offense in a variety of ways.
Murray’s arm strength and accuracy allow him to make all the throws on the field. He is also a dangerous runner, and he can scramble for yards or take off on designed runs.
Murray’s mobility also makes him a threat in the red zone. He can extend plays with his legs and create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates.
Murray’s Impact On The Cardinals’ Defense
Murray’s return will also have a positive impact on the Cardinals’ defense. Murray’s ability to make plays with his arm and his legs will force opposing defenses to respect the Cardinals’ passing and running games.
This will open up things for the Cardinals’ defense, which has struggled at times this season. The Cardinals will be able to blitz more often and pressure opposing quarterbacks more effectively.
Murray’s Impact On The Cardinals’ Playoff Chances
Murray’s return gives the Cardinals a legitimate chance to make the playoffs in 2023. The Cardinals have a talented roster, and Murray is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
The Cardinals are currently in third place in the NFC West, but they are only one game behind the first-place San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals’ schedule also softens in the second half of the season.
If Murray can return to form, the Cardinals have a good chance of making the playoffs and making a deep run.
Murray’s Contract Situation
Murray is entering the final year of his rookie contract. The Cardinals have the option to pick up Murray’s fifth-year option, but it is unclear if they will do so.
Murray is one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, and the Cardinals are already facing some salary cap constraints. The Cardinals may choose to wait until after the season to negotiate a new contract with Murray.
If the Cardinals do not pick up Murray’s fifth-year option, he will become a free agent after the season. Murray would be one of the most sought-after players in the NFL, and he could command a top-of-the-market contract.
Murray’s Future With The Cardinals
Murray has said that he wants to stay with the Cardinals, but it is unclear if the Cardinals will be able to afford him. The Cardinals have a number of other important players who are also up for
