The Chiefs stealing a preseason standout quarterback from the Cardinals is a red flag.
With the Los Angeles Rams’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football, the Arizona Cardinals have gained some breathing room.
Despite losing two of their last three games, Kliff Kingsbury’s team is still one game and a half games ahead of the Rams due to the division tiebreaker.
Before their much-needed Week 12 bye, Arizona has one more game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Cards are clearly hurting after losing to the Panthers without DeAndre Hopkins, Justin Pugh, and Chase Edmonds.
The QB room, however, is the most serious injury concern.
Arizona’s quarterback is retained by an AFC contender.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport on Monday, backup quarterback Colt McCoy suffered a pectoral strain during Sunday’s loss to Carolina.
On November 15, Kingsbury told the media that he’s “day-to-day” and that practice will determine whether he plays this weekend.
Of course, McCoy’s availability against the Seahawks is contingent on Kyler Murray’s availability.
Murray has been out for the past two weeks due to an ankle injury, and the third-year quarterback could easily be rested for another week before the Week 12 bye.
On Murray’s potential return, Kingsbury said, “It’s going to be close.”
Due to the unfortunate situation at quarterback, Arizona will look for any extra bodies, which could include scouring the practice squads of other teams.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Kansas City Chiefs signed undrafted rookie Shane Buechele as a deterrent to the Cardinals adding him to their active roster.
According to @caplannfl, the Chiefs have promoted QB Shane Buechele from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
According to a source, the Cardinals attempted to sign Buechele to their active roster.
Kyler Murray and Colt McCoy are both out with injuries right now.

Buechele is in his rookie season after playing for the Texas Longhorns from 2016 to 2018 and then transferring to SMU for the 2019-20 season.
You may think to yourself,
He hasn’t been drafted.
What difference does it make anyway?
The Washington Football Team is led by Taylor Heinecke, an undrafted rookie who was outstanding in the 2020 playoffs and recently upset the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In his senior season, Buechele completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,095 yards, 23 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
Buechele threw four touchdowns in three preseason games in 2021…
