Kyler Murray made his season debut for the Arizona Cardinals after nearly a year, following his ACL injury. He returned in a win over the Atlanta Falcons and speculation about quarterback replacement. Murray is playing to secure his position in Arizona. He looked promising in his return, passing for 249 yards, completing nearly 60 percent, and adding 33 yards rushing. This performance was satisfactory for the Cardinals’ second win.
Despite Murray’s big contract extension, talk about a potential quarterback replacement has persisted. Issues such as his film study, social media conduct, and past on-field performances have raised questions about his future with the team. The Cardinals will be closely monitoring how the offense performs during the remainder of the season, as it will influence Murray’s future.
The team’s record for the season is currently tied for second-worst in the league. With this in mind, there could be an opportunity for Arizona to draft Caleb Williams from USC. Speculation also arises about whether Williams would want to play there. The decision on Murray’s future may be influenced by the team’s performance during the next seven games.
