Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is having one of the worst seasons of his career so far as his team sits at the bottom of the NFC West. As the league enters Week 10, problems have risen for the Cardinals.
Murray has been listed as questionable after the team's week 9 loss against the Seattle Seahawks. He is suffering from a hamstring injury and did not take part in Wednesday's practice session. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but even if it is a hamstring strain, he will likely miss Sunday's game.
Kyler Murray hasn't missed a single game this season. In nine games, he has thrown for 2,168 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions and has attempted 360 passes, out of which 240 were completed. He is also Arizona’s leading rusher this season, gaining 359 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
The Cardinals will play the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Cardinals are 3-6 this season and are looking for a major turnaround. But without their signal caller, can they stay afloat?
If Murray is ruled out, then veteran Colt McCoy will start for the Cardinals. McCoy hasn't played a single game this season, but he is experienced enough to handle pressure situations.
Last year, McCoy started in three games where he threw for 740 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He had a pass completion rate of 74.7% and won two games out of the three.
