The Cardinals may be without starting quarterback Kyler Murray for some time.

On the second play from scrimmage in the Week 14 “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Cardinals and Patriots, Murray scrambled to his right, and seemed to injure something in his lower half. Murray wouldn’t be able to make it to his feet.

The cart was immediately brought out for Murray, who was surrounded by teammates as he made his way off the field.

ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters reported that Murray was “sobbing” as he made his way off the field on the cart.

Murray was replaced by second-stringer Colt McCoy, who has seen the field already in 2022, while Murray was dealing with a hamstring injury.

Kyler Murray injury update

Murray was carted off in the first quarter of the Week 14 Cardinals-Patriots matchup after suffering a non-contact injury. He would later be listed as out the remainder of the game.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the fear is that Murray suffered a “serious knee injury,” but more tests should confirm whatever that is.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said during the game he was unsure of the severity of the injury, just that he wouldn’t return on Monday night.

The Cardinals would initially list Murray as “questionable” with a knee injury, as he was also undergoing further testing. That later led to Murray being listed as out.

Murray has dealt with a number of injuries through his short NFL career: He has suffered a shoulder injury, multiple hamstring injuries and an ankle sprain. He has already missed two games in 2022 while dealing with a hamstring injury.
