UPDATE: Kliff Kingsbury said coming out of halftime that Murray was fine and just got bumped. He’s chugging along out there, but it will be worth tracking the rest of the game.
The Arizona Cardinals find themselves in a tough game against the Seattle Seahawks, and they’re hoping the degree of difficulty does not increase. Quarterback Kyler Murray took a tough hit from Carlos Dunlap in the first quarter and was seen wincing after the play.

Murray has remained in the game and made some big plays to keep this game close, including a beautiful 25-yard pass to Maxx Williams that set up a goal to go situation and the Cardinals score. However, the video below shows Murray wincing while throwing some passes on the sideline. This particular video was from immediately after he took the hit, but he’s been seen wincing at times since then.

For now Murray is fine and continuing to play, but this will be something to track as the game progresses. Chris Streveler is Murray’s backup but has yet to take a single snap this season. He joined the Cardinals this year after two years in the CFL.
