An already disaster season for the Arizona Cardinals got worse on Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots.
On the third play of the game, Cardinals QB Kyler Murray went down to a non-contact knee injury. The former No. 1 overall draft pick scrambled but fell to the ground after his right knee buckled on the way to the turf. Murray was carted to the locker room and replaced by veteran backup Colt McCoy.
The early indications weren’t good and now there’s a belief that Murray suffered a torn ACL, according to Mike Jurecki:
An MRI and additional tests will be done to confirm the severity of Murray’s injury. A torn ACL would sideline Murray for the remainder of the season and potentially part of the 2023 season depending on the damage done to the knee. A full recovery typically takes nine to 12 months.
