Rams head coach Sean McVay said that quarterback Matthew Stafford will never play a preseason snap as long as he’s making the decisions, but another NFC West team is taking a different approach with their quarterback.

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said at a Monday press conference, via multiple reporters, that Kyler Murray will play against the Cowboys on Friday night. Kingsbury didn’t announce an exact amount of time that Murray will be on the field, but it’s likely safe to think that it won’t be an extended outing.

Kingsbury said that the plan is also to play the team’s other starters as they open the preseason schedule, which makes sense as they wouldn’t roll Murray out behind backup offensive linemen.

The Cowboys havent said anything definitive about Dak Prescott‘s plans, but he’s only moved to light throwing after sitting out for a number of practices with a muscle strain in his right shoulder so he probably will wait for his first game action of the summer.

  1. McVay has all the answers for his team, but Kingsbury has it right. The dynamics between the QB and the other 10 guys is different on game day than it is in practice and it’s smart to get everybody comfortable with each other on the big stage before the games are for real.
