Friday update: Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters on Friday that Kyler Murray’s status will be a game day decision this week. He also says they are being “overly cautious” with their start quarterback. All signs point to him and DeAndre Hopkins returning this week, but there is still a slight chance Kingsbury holds them out another week.

Thursday update: Both Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins will play against the Bears this week, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. He of course added “barring a set back” as a qualifier, but that’s true of any player. Expect both star players to return. UPDATE: Murray got in a second limited practice on Thursday.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is practicing on Wednesday, per Mike Jurecki. Murray was able to get limited practices in for Week 11, but was held out with a bye week coming for the team in Week 12. All signs point to him being able to go this week, but a full practice on Wednesday would be the best possible sign. We’ll find out how he is designated later in the day when the injury report comes out.
Fantasy football implications
A healthy Murray is a must start as usual.
