Kyler Murray, the Cardinals’ quarterback, will be decided during the game, according to Kliff Kingsbury.
Coach Kliff Kingsbury of the Arizona Cardinals revealed that whether Kyler Murray plays on Sunday, November 7, will largely be determined by how his ankle feels that morning.
“We’ll see how the week goes,” Kingsbury said, adding that the quarterback is still “progressing” through his ailment.
“We have a fantastic medical and training team that is putting him through the wringer and getting him ready,” he said.

Murray met with reporters on November 3 despite not practicing with the team. He discussed his recovery and the timing for his comeback.
When asked about his ankle, he answered, “It’s good.” “I’m just taking it day by day and seeing where it takes me.”
On October 28, Murray suffered an ankle injury late in the Cardinals’ 24-21 home loss to the Green Bay Packers. Murray’s ailment is “day-to-day,” according to Kingsbury, who believes the quarterback might play against the San Francisco 49ers even if he doesn’t train all week.
“We feel good about him going out there and executing,” he added, citing his abilities and current grasp of the system. “As long as he’s getting the mental reps, we feel good about him going out there and executing.”
“I think I’d be good to go Sunday if I just know the game plan and get the mental reps,” Murray concurred.
He added the extra time off after the Packers’ game on Thursday night was “absolutely helpful” in his rehabilitation.
Murray was tackled by Packers safety Darnell Savage with about a minute left in the game against the Packers, and he came up limping. When receiver A.J. Green didn’t turn around for the ball two plays later, the Cardinals QB threw his second interception of the game.
Murray was eventually diagnosed with an ankle sprain and might miss up to three weeks, according to Fox’s Jay Glazer.
