Quarterback Kyler Murray returned to practice for the Cardinals on Friday, but no call will be made about his return to the lineup against the Panthers at this point.

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury called Murray a game-time decision and said he wants to see how the quarterback’s ankle does after the return to practice before making a decision. Murray did not play against the 49ers last Sunday and Colt McCoy was able to pilot the Cardinals to a win in his absence.

While Murray was able to return to practice, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins remained out with a hamstring injury. Hopkins did not practice at all last week either and joined Murray on the inactive list against the 49ers.

Kingsbury said Hopkins will also be a game-time decision. Wide receiver Rondale Moore (neck, concussion) may also miss the game, but Kingsbury said safety Budda Baker (concussion, knee) should be good to go.

  1. After hearing Murray basically say he is going to play Sunday talking about how quickly he has healed or is healing my money is on Murray and Hopkins playing on Sunday. Being they’re playing Carolina AZ might hold them back giving them one more week to ensure they’re fully healthy as a deep playoff run is what they have to keep focused on. There isn’t a chance at all they won’t play the following week versus SEA, AZ will be fully healthy for that game and should easily beat SEA and then they get a much needed bye week before coming back for the final 5 games. No matter how this week plays out AZ isn’t losing more than 2 to 4 games this year. AZ will finish somewhere between 13-15 wins and will in all likelihood be the NFC’s #1 seed earning a playoff bye week and definite home playoff game.
