Cardinals-Rams injury report: Kyler Murray a game-time decision, Budda Baker questionable

Nov 11, 2022, 2:25 PM | Updated: Nov 28, 2022, 11:47 am

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Sunday in the team’s game at the Los Angeles Rams, head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Friday.

Both the Cardinals’ and Rams’ starting quarterbacks were unable to fully participate in any of their respective practices this week.

Murray (hamstring) was upgraded to limited for the Cardinals after Wednesday’s walk-through had the QB as a non-participant. Colt McCoy, who has yet to appear this season, would start if Murray is not able to go for Arizona.

Murray has thrown for 2,168 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions this year while rushing for 359 yards on a 6.1 yards-per-carry average.

Meanwhile, Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford had been unable to practice through Thursday due to concussion symptoms. He was limited Friday, according to Rams coach Sean McVay and will be listed as questionable for the game, like Murray.

Stafford was placed in concussion protocols Wednesday after the Los Angeles medical staff grew cautious of a head injury suffered in the team’s game Sunday. John Wolford is Los Angeles’ backup quarterback.

And while nine Cardinals are listed as questionable for Sunday’s contest, including cornerback Byron Murphy, kicker Matt Prater and wide receiver Greg Dortch, safety Budda Baker has gone from a “0%” chance to questionable after practicing in a limited fashion on Friday.
