Kyler Murray active for Cardinals vs. Rams, WR KeeSean Johnson out
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Rookie Kyler Murray will indeed start at quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals as they host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
He was among the active players for the Week 13 game at State Farm Stadium.
The Cardinals entered the game looking relatively injury-free. In fact, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday the roster is the healthiest it’s been all year, but that came before Murray (hamstring) joined defensive end Jonathan Bullard (foot) as the only players listed as questionable heading into the game.
Both Murray and Bullard, however, had gone through a full Friday practice, according to the injury report.
The inactives list for the Cardinals includes many healthy scratches, including rookie receiver KeeSean Johnson.
Johnson is joined in the inactives list by rookie offensive linemen Lamont Gaillard and Josh Miles, rookie defensive lineman Michael Dogbe, second-year cornerback Chris Jones, linebacker Pete Robertson and running back Zach Zenner.
The list of inactive players for the Rams includes receiver Nsimba Webster, defensive back Darious Williams, linebacker Natrez Patrick, offensive lineman Jamil Demby, offensive tackle Rob Havenstein, tight end Gerald Everett and defensive tackle Tanzel Smart.
