Kyler Murray working on side at Tuesday’s practice

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said on Monday that the team would see if quarterback Kyler Murray can “cut it loose” at Tuesday’s practice and it doesn’t look like they were ready to push things that far early in the week.

Murray said his right shoulder was fine after he appeared to hurt it in last Thursday’s loss to the Seahawks, but Kingsbury said he is “working through” it ahead of this weekend’s game against the Patriots. Darren Urban of the team’s website reports Murray was working through things on a side field at Tuesday’s practice.

Urban added that Murray is still set to talk to reporters on Tuesday afternoon, which is usually a sign that a player is expected to play. It will also be an opportunity to hear from Murray about his shoulder.

The Cardinals will not issue an injury report until Wednesday, but they held practice on Tuesday in order to allow for time off on Thanksgiving.

  1. Running qb is hurting. Go figure – lol. People are quick to say that you shouldn’t pay Rb’s because they break down too quickly. Why do we think differently for QBs who run a lot? They are taking hit from all the same defenders as Rb’s, so why is the perception so different. QBs like Murray, Jackson and keck let’s also add a player like Steve Young who was doing it “before it was cool” and the only reason his career was as long as it was, was because he spent significant time on the bench before becoming a starter for SF (yes, I realize he was drafted by Tampa, not SF). The new normal are QBs that can’t really work the pocket or read defenses, can’t work from under center, which puts more stress on o-lines and makes things easier for defenses. What happens when these teams lose their starting qb? The teams lose their leading passer AND runner. And let’s be honest, there’s no easy answer because the NCAA isn’t really interested in grooming QBs for the NFL and there are very few programs running pro style offenses. Therefore the learning curve is ferocious and few going forward will survive it long term. You see an effort to do like Baltimore, to build systems around the new QBs, but so far, the pro style nfl defenses seem up to the task of stopping running QBs
