In the second half of last Sunday’s 17-10 win over the 49ers, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray‘s right arm was getting attention from members of the team’s training staff when the defense was on the field.

Murray remained in the game and hit wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for a key fourth quarter touchdown pass, but that doesn’t mean the issue was resolved. Murray was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and the Cardinals list him with a right shoulder issue.

Murray injured the A/C joint in his right shoulder last November and saw his production drop over the final weeks of the regular season.

Hopkins didn’t practice because of an illness. Center Rodney Hudson (ribs, shoulder), linebacker Jordan Hicks (toe), cornerback Byron Murphy (ribs), defensive lineman Corey Peters (rest), linebacker Tanner Vallejo (hand), and cornerback Marco Wilson (ribs) were also out.

Offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum (ribs), tight end Darrell Daniels (illness), and running back Chase Edmonds (shoulder) joined Murray in the limited category.

  1. Evidently he injured himself while prematurely patting himself on the back. This team is not as good as their record – cannot wait until they implode – which they will with him as QB or if his blanket, Hopkins, is injured.

  2. He is an exciting player and I kind of wish he was on the 49ers, but it’s an open question ho long a QB of his size can last in the NFL. He’s small enough that he makes Russell Wilson look like Ben Roethlisburger in comparison.

  3. Giant sized QB’s like Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, etc., get hurt all the time. But when a little guy like Kyler Murray gets hurt, it’s because he’s small? Drew Brees had to have played in a lot of football games to accumulate as many all time passing records as he has. He’s not much bigger than Murray. Hey, in the NFL, just about everyone gets hurt. Whether you’re 6’6 320 lbs, or 5’9 175 pounds. Some of the all time NFL records are held by smaller players. Some of the biggest guys are always on the IR.
