Cardinals’ Kyler Murray was carted off the field against the Patriots with a non-contact injury

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray had to be carried off the field after just the third play against the New England Patriots.

Running out of the pocket on his right, Murray tried to juke an approaching Patriots defender and immediately hit the turf after trying to make a cut and suffered a non-contact injury that left him significant pain.

After being assessed on the pitch, Murray was taken to the wagon where his entire team comforted him as he pulled a towel over his head in apparent disappointment.

Colt McCoy came into play. The team said Murray’s return was in doubt and was later ruled out.

It’s been a rollercoaster season for the Cardinals, who go into this game 4-8. But it would certainly be rock bottom if their franchise quarterback, who just signed a $230 million five-year extension just before this season, is out for the season.

This isn’t Murray’s first injury this season as he was recently forced to miss two games with a thigh strain. But even on the field, Murray wasn’t his normal self.

CARDINALS’ KYLER MURRAY GIVES STRONG ANSWER TO BRING THE SUFFERING TOGETHER

The former first overall was 3-7 as a starter for the year that began Monday night, throwing for 2,359 yards with 14 touchdowns for seven interceptions. He also possessed an 87.1 quarterback rating, which is his lowest rating of his career.

All of the Cardinals’ struggles this season can’t fall on Murray’s shoulders because the fingers can point in multiple directions. However, with the Cardinals giving him a lucrative overtime, Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury have gotten most of the flak from the fans.
