We learned on Thursday that the Cardinals will open the season on the road against the Commanders in what will be Jonathan Gannon’s first game as an NFL head coach.

It’s unclear who will be at quarterback for Arizona in that game. Kyler Murray continues to recover from last season’s torn ACL and no one is setting any timetable for that process right now.

On Friday, Gannon was asked about Murray’s status and said that there’s a long road ahead for all involved.

“He’s doing good. He’s doing good,” Gannon said, via Bo Brack of PHNX Sports. “You can ask him about the rehab, but I know he’s making strides. He’s a long way away, but we don’t play for a long time, either. So I feel good where he’s at.”

Colt McCoy, fifth-round pick Clayton Tune, David Blough, and Jeff Driskel will be the Cardinals quarterbacks until Murray is cleared to return.

  1. Blough and Driskel are good mannequins for camp and practice squad. If they see the field during the season, you know your season is tanked.

  2. Huge season coming up for him. Coming off injury, learning a new offense, new GM and coach neither of whom have any ties to him. The days of sleeping during film may well be over if he wants to remain a starter.

  3. AZ is the worst franchise in all of sports and its really not close. Kyler is going to be killing them with his awful contract for years to come.
