Cardinals’ Kyler Murray Likely Suffered Torn ACL



Kyler Murray

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was carted off the field during Monday Night’s game against the New England Patriots with a noncontact knee injury less than 90 seconds into the game, and is scheduled to undergo further testing on Tuesday, including an MRI.

According to ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss, there is “little doubt that it’s torn” indicating that the belief is that Murray suffered a torn ACL.

Following the game, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Murray’s injury “doesn’t look good, but we’ll know more in the morning.”

“Obviously, it didn’t look good,” Kingsbury said. “I’ve never seen him in that type of shape, so I assumed it wasn’t good.”

“Anytime you see a noncontact injury, you know it’s worse right away,” Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said of Murray’s injury.

“That hurt. Kyler put a lot into this. He’s been preparing his butt off to get back after the hamstring [injury that kept him out of Weeks 10 and 11], so for that to happen, I hate that for him. I know he’ll recover and get back to himself.”

Murray has thrown for 2,359 yards, 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season for the Cardinals.
