NFL Rumors: Cardinals Quarterback Could Miss Week 11

The Arizona Cardinals survived in Week 10 without starting quarterback Kyler Murray on the field, topping their NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams 27-17. They may need to figure out how to get by without their young passer for at least another week. Murray could miss Monday Night Football's matchup with the San Francisco 49ers, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Murray missed Week 10 with a hamstring injury suffered in the Cardinals' Week 9 31-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Colt McCoy started in his place on Sunday, netting 220 passing yards and throwing one touchdown in the win over the Rams.

Murray has totalled 2168 passing yards and 359 rushing yards for the Cardinals in nine starts this year, but the team should be able to get by without him. McCoy is one of the league's better backups. Including last week's game, he's 3-1 over the four contests Murray has missed since 2021.

Murray joined the Cardinals as their first-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after a Heisman Trophy-winning junior season with Oklahoma. An electric, ultra-mobile passer, Murray has totalled 13648 passing yards and 2145 rushing yards in 55 appearances with the Cardinals, leading his team to a 25-29-1 record. He signed a colossal five-year, $230.5 million extension with the team earlier this offseason.
