TEMPE — After seeing the practice field throughout the week, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray heads into Sunday’s matchup against the Seattle Seahawks as a game-time decision.

“It’ll be gameday,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday.

“I’m always confident,” he said when asked of his confidence level in Murray playing.

Kingsbury also added that safety Budda Baker (heel) will play against the Seahawks and offensive lineman Max Garcia (Achilles) has a chance to play.

However, the head coach ruled wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) out, but did say he would be good to go for Week 13 following the bye.

Additionally, Justin Pugh (calf), is trending toward being out.

Murray has been trending in the right direction over the past week after missing the last two games with a left ankle sprain.

He returned to the practice field as a limited participant last Friday and has held that same designation throughout this week’s prep for the Seahawks.

It’s not clear, however, if Murray was limited once again on Friday, with the final injury report not expected to drop until later Friday afternoon.

With Murray sidelined, Arizona has gone 1-1 with backup Colt McCoy at the reins.

It’ll be a massive boost for the offense if Murray is good to go Sunday.

In eight starts this season, the signal-caller has completed an NFL-leading 72.7% of his passes for 2,276 yards and 17 touchdowns to seven interceptions. He has also added 147 yards and three scores on 49 carries.

The Cardinals take on the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday at 2:25 p.m. Catch all the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
