The quarterback situation for the Arizona Cardinals might persist through the 2023 campaign. After the star quarterback underwent reconstructive surgery for his ACL, Kliff Kingsbury announced on Wednesday that the Cardinals don’t anticipate having Kyler Murray back at the start of the upcoming season.

After the procedure, Murray sent fans an encouraging message, but Kingsbury’s update on the Cardinals quarterback may lower fan expectations, as they had hoped to have their starting quarterback for the 2023 season opener.

The quarterback [Murray] “probably” won’t be back for the start of the 2023 season, according to Cliff Kingsbury on Wednesday. Murray suffered a knee injury during the opening period of a Monday Night Football game against the New England Patriots in Week 14. According to the official report, Murray tore his ACL. Tuesday morning, he had surgery, and Kingsbury said he had texted the quarterback since then.

 Kyler Murray Injury

Murray’s ACL injury will take time to heal, so it’s doubtful he’ll be ready to play in Week 1. That idea was repeated by Kingsbury in his remarks on Wednesday. Next season, Colt McCoy may start at quarterback for the Cardinals before Murray makes his comeback.

Murray was replaced by McCoy for three games this season, including one following the ACL injury. After suffering a concussion, he is temporarily out of commission. In Week 18, when the Cardinals play the San Francisco 49ers, David Blough is expected to start.

A five-year, $230.5 million deal was signed by Kyler Murray in the offseason. He has a $16 million cap hit on top of his $2 million basic salary for the 2023 season.
