Cardinals Get Great News With Latest Kyler Murray Injury Update
The Arizona Cardinals were dealt their first loss of the 2021 NFL season on Thursday in a 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers. To make matters worse, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray limped off the field following the loss, leading some to speculate if he suffered an injury.
Fortunately, there's good news for Arizona fans. Murray told reporters after the game that he's feeling okay and that another player "rolled up on me."
Kyler Murray Injury Update
The Packers did a good job at holding Murray in check on Thursday. The third-year QB went 22-for-33 (66.7%) on his passes for 274 yards while throwing a pair of interceptions. It was also just the second time this season that he finished without a passing touchdown.
While the loss to the Packers is disappointing, Murray has 10 days to shake off the loss and move forward. He's been Arizona's MVP so far this season, completing a career-best 72.7% of his passes for 17 TDs to 7 INTs. That isn't even to mention his 49 rushes for 147 yards and a trio of scores.
Murray is also one of the favorites to be named 2021 NFL MVP. His +600 odds rank fourth-best, trailing only Josh Allen (+300), Tom Brady (+460) and Dak Prescott (+500), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Cardinals will have a chance to get back on track in Week 9 when they face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Nov. 7.
