The Arizona Cardinals were dealt a massive blow on Monday night after Kyler Murray went down with a non-contact knee injury. It's now been confirmed Murray suffered a torn ACL on the play, which ends his 2022 season and will likely extend into the 2023 campaign.

Down a QB for the rest of this year, Arizona added a signal-caller on Wednesday.

The Cardinals are signing David Blough to their active roster. He was signed off of the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad, so he'll immediately join Arizona's 53-man group.

Blough originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2019. He spent three years with the Detroit Lions, appearing in seven games and making five starts. Blough threw for 1,033 yards, 4 touchdowns and 7 interceptions during his stint in Detroit.

This addition gives the Cardinals someone with starting experience to serve as the new backup at the very least. Former QB2 Colt McCoy will now take over as starter once again after filling in for Murray for two games earlier this year.
