The Arizona Cardinals came away with a 27-17 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, but it wasn’t without its casualties.
Tight end Zach Ertz and quarterback Colt McCoy came out on the other side of Week 10 with respective knee injuries. Both are set to undergo further testing on Monday to get a better idea of the ailments.
Ertz was knocked out of action in the first quarter. He left the field visibly upset before being carted off. After the game, he was seen in a brace and is expected to miss multiple weeks, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The insider adds that the team suspects Ertz’s ACL is still intact, however.
“He’s a huge part of our team, leader, work ethic, all those things. A tremendous player,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters postgame.
McCoy was also seen with his knee wrapped and told reporters he would get more testing done on Monday. The QB was injured midway through the third quarter but managed to finish the game.
The QB’s injury will be something to watch over the next few days, especially with quarterback Kyler Murray’s own injury issues.
The franchise signal caller was inactive on Sunday with a hamstring issue suffered last week against the Seattle Seahawks. Entering Week 11, it’s unclear where Murray stands with the injury.
“He’s trending closer,” Kingsbury said of Murray postgame. “We want him to be able to take off. When he takes off, go as fast as you can run and use those gifts he has, and he wouldn’t have been able to do that today.”
