Cardinals QB Kyler Murray on Week 11 status: ‘If I can play, I’ll play’

After a blazing start to the 2021 season, the Arizona Cardinals have stumbled over the last few weeks.

The Cardinals have dropped their last two games, largely due to star quarterback Kyler Murray being sidelined with an ankle injury. As Arizona prepares to play Week 11 action against the Seattle Seahawks, Murray voiced confidence that he will play.

“Understanding what we’re really here for,” Murray said via ESPN. “Obviously, if you can’t go, you can’t go, and then if you can, you let it ride. I’m not putting too much pressure on the decision to play or not. If I can play, I’ll play.”

The Cardinals’ hot start allowed them to take their time with Murray’s injury to allow it to heal properly. He may not be entirely past the ailment, but he’s progressed enough to potentially give it a go against the Seahawks.

Murray practiced on Wednesday, which head coach Kliff Kingsbury noted that the star quarterback moved around well.

“I’ve been hopeful each week that he can kind of turn the corner on it and hasn’t yet completely, but hopefully this is the week,’ Kingsbury said.

The Cardinals will monitor Murray closely over the next few days in practice ahead of Sunday’s contest. If he can’t play, expect the team to turn to backup Colt McCoy to step in as the spot starter again.

McCoy is dealing with a pectoral strain that pulled him out of the Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. However, the injury isn’t serious enough to prevent him from playing against the Seahawks if needed.
