Kyler Murray injury update: Cardinals QB limps off field at end of game vs. Packers

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray suffered an apparent leg injury late in the thrilling “Thursday Night Football” game between the Cardinals and the Packers, which the Packers won 24-21.  

Murray was tackled from behind on a run near the end of the fourth quarter and his knees hit the turf as he came down. His right knee appeared to hit the ground first and the hardest. Murray was able to get up and stay in the game, but two plays later he threw an interception in the end zone that effectively ended the game.

Murray limped off the field on his own after the interception. 

There have been no official reports on Murray’s injury or its severity, but Pro Football Focus Injury Analyst Mario Pilato speculated that Murray could have suffered a left high ankle sprain or a PCL sprain of his right knee.

If Murray does have a PCL sprain, he could be out for a week or two if the injury is ruled Grade 1, or least severe. If the sprain is Grade 2, he could be out two to four weeks.

Murray wasn’t the only Cardinal who dealt with injuries Thursday night. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins entered the game with a hamstring injury; he left in the first quarter and appeared to be working on his hamstring on the sideline. He was initially listed as questionable to return but ended up returning in the third quarter. Running back Jonathan Ward collided with the Packers’ Kylin Hill in the third quarter and both players were carted off the field. Running back Chase Edmonds also left the field, but only for four minutes. 

The Cardinals now have 10 days to recover before their next matchup against the 49ers on Sunday, Nov. 7.
