Report: Kyler Murray's Ankle Could Mean Missed Time

Early part of week could go a long way in determining QB's status

On Friday, Kliff Kingsbury said quarterback Kyler Murray was "sore" and that the Cardinals would see how he was handling his injury -- Murray said he was rolled up on at the end of the Packers game, limped off the field and was in a walking boot leaving the stadium -- next week.

"Hopefully the next two or three days off will be good for him and we will see where he is next week," Kingsbury said.

That fits with the report Jay Glazer had on Fox Sunday morning, although it could make things very interesting as the Cards try to rebound from their first loss of the season. Glazer called Murray's injury a "one-to-three-week-type of sprained ankle," although he echoed what Kingsbury said -- the Cardinals will reevaluate where the swelling will be when Murray comes back Monday.

"He legitimately sprained his ankle," Glazer said.

In a follow-up tweet, Glazer called it a "medial ankle sprain."

The guess will be the Cardinals and Kingsbury will play this out as long as possible -- much like the Dak Prescott calf news played out this week for the Cowboys. Knowing Kyler, he will do everything possible to play. He takes great pride in not yet having missed any games as a pro. If he does have to miss a game, veteran Colt McCoy would be the quarterback for the Cardinals.
