TEMPE, Ariz. – Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is set to start Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers after missing two games with a hamstring injury.
“Yeah, looks that way,” coach Kliff Kingsbury said.
Murray went through full-speed reps on Friday, said Kingsbury, who was pleased with what he saw from his quarterback.
Murray “looked sharp,” Kingsbury said.
The Cardinals had discussed holding Murray out until after the bye next week.
“We had talked about it,” Kingsbury said. “But, obviously, he was anxious to get back and he feels great. I mean, he feels 100%. If there was anything less than that we would have maybe waited but he feels full go so we’re gonna get him out there .”
Kingsbury said Monday night’s blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers did not dictate Arizona’s decision to play Murray this weekend. Arizona had this plan in place, Kingsbury said.
Murray missed the last two games with a hamstring injury that he suffered in Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings. He aggravated it the next week against the Seattle Seahawks and then missed the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers games.
