The Cardinals plan on rookie Kyler Murray starting against the Rams in the season finale according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Murray tweaked his hamstring against the Seahawks last week and didn’t return to the game but an MRI didn’t reveal any serious damage and he must be feeling good coming into Sunday.

Murray has played well in his rookie campaign and is poised to take Rookie of the Year honors, especially if he can put up a decent game in L.A. to finish out the season. There is of course a real chance that he aggravates the injury and is quickly removed from the game for Brett Hundley.
