Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray said his shoulder was good after he appeared to hurt it in last Thursday’s loss to the Seahawks, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury wants to see Murray in practice before making any proclamations about the quarterback’s condition.
“We’ll see how he feels tomorrow when we get out on the grass and see where we’re at practice-wise if we need to make any adjustments or if he can cut it loose,” Kingsbury said, via Tyler Drake of 98.7 Arizona Sports.
Kingsbury said that Murray is “working through” his shoulder issue and the team will see how practice goes on Tuesday before deciding if they need to alter anything about his workload this week, the story said. The Cards play in New England on Sunday.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson has been crystal clear that he will not bench starting quarterback Carson Wentz for rookie Jalen Hurts. But Hurts might start to get more snaps as a gadget player on offense.
“I think I can get him in the game a little bit more,” Pederson said.
Of course, Hurts only played one snap on Sunday against the Browns, so playing Hurts “a little bit more” wouldn’t necessarily mean giving him a significant role in the offense, the story pointed out. So far this season Hurts has 12 carries for 56 yards and one catch for three yards. He has yet to throw a pass. Hurts was a surprising second round pick by the team, so the QB controversy is real in Philly right now.
The story said further evaluation of his injury won’t happen until he does return. Michel is rumored to be back soon and would join Harris and White in the Patriots backfield assuming Burkhead is going to miss some time.
