Cardinals News; Murray on PUP | McCoy Cut

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will be sitting out at least the first four games of the 2023 NFL season as he continues to recover from last year's ACL injury. This was reported by the NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Monday. Murray suffered the knee injury on December 12th and will remain on the team's reserve/physically unable to perform list to start the season. This move guarantees that Murray will miss at least the first four weeks of the year.

Additionally, the Cardinals also announced the release of Colt McCoy on Monday. Earlier this offseason, McCoy was thought to be the leading candidate to be the team's Week 1 starting QB. With his release, it appears Arizona and first-year head coach Jonathan Gannon will go with either the recently acquired Josh Dobbs or rookie Clayton Tune as their starting quarterback.

Murray's injury was a huge blow to the Cardinals last season, as he was having a breakout year before his injury. He was in the running for the league's MVP award and was a huge part of the Cardinals' success. However, with his recovery progressing well, it looks like he will be back on the field soon enough.

The Cardinals will have to make do without Murray for the first few games of the season, but they have some capable options at quarterback to fill in. Dobbs has had some success in his limited NFL career, and Tune is a promising rookie who could surprise people.

Overall, the Cardinals will have to navigate a tough start to the season without their star quarterback. However, with the team's depth and talent, they should be able to weather the storm and stay competitive until Murray is back on the field.
