While the injury timeline for Murray could be tough to project, his sprained ankle is expected to be a one-to-two week injury.
“I know he was sore today, and hopefully the next two or three days off will be good for him,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Friday. “We’ll see where he’s at next week.”
Murray will receive a couple extra days of rest thanks to the team playing on Thursday night. The Cardinals begin preparation for their Week 9 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, and all eyes will be on Murray to see if he practices.
