Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury mentioned on Wednesday that Arizona will need Colt McCoy next year given that Kyler Murray is likely to be out for a significant portion of the season.

Murray also gave an update on his status, posting on social media that he had undergone successful ACL surgery.

“[T]hank you for all the love and prayers,” Murray wrote. “I appreciate the support and positivity more than I can express, I’ll be back.”

According to NFL Media, Murray also had some meniscus repair work done on his knee.

Murray suffered his torn ACL at the beginning of Arizona’s Week 14 loss to New England.

In 11 games this season, Murray completed 66.4 percent of his passes for 2,368 yards with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 418 yards with three TDs.

Via Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ website, head coach Kliff Kingsbury exchanged texts with Murray.

“I know he was excited to get it done and get moving forward,” Kingsbury said on Wednesday.

  1. This guy is tone deaf. No one cares about his ACL surgery. Think of the timing of his announcement and what happened to another player. I swear this guy is one class-less act.

  2. At least he is going to get his. Jackson in Baltimore threw the dice one too many times.

  3. The injury was a blessing in disguise for Kyler. More Call of Duty, less film study.

  4. Tone deaf guy….. The NFL doesn’t shut down for nothing, 24 7 365 days a year. Just think of all the revenue, betting is at stake here. Do u know why the NFL stayed on for so long Monday night after play stopped? To get in all the commercials

  5. Failed GM on medical leave, running QB has knee surgery and lame duck coach looking to go back to college as an OC.

    Future so bright…
