Kyler Murray Is Expected to Make His NFL Debut
The Cardinals snagged their quarterback of the future in the draft and fans will get to see Murray make his NFL debut. It is unclear how long Murray will play, but he is expected to see the field against the Chargers. New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury noted that the team hoped for the rookie to have a “positive outlook” before removing Murray from the game.
“Not to say we’re going to feel great when he comes out of the game, but you’d like him to have a positive outlook and have accomplished what we’ve set out to do, and that’s execute our offense and control what we can control at that position,” Kingsbury noted to Fox Sports. “I’m sure he’ll be more amped than nervous. He’s a competitor and he gets the butterflies just like everyone else. He loves when the lights are on.”
