The Cardinals give a positive update on quarterback Kyler Murray’s return.

The Arizona Cardinals’ Kyler Murray has taken a positive step toward a possible return.

According to Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury, Murray was on the field and practicing with the team on November 17 and “moving around pretty good” on his injured left ankle.

Murray may be able to play against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, November 21, according to Kingsbury, but that decision will be made later in the week.

“He’s getting better every day,” he said, “so we’ll see how he progresses.”

Murray told reporters, “I hope so,” when asked if he expects to play in Seattle.

“If I can play,” he said, adding that he’s “pretty close” to being ready.

“I’ve come a long way.”

“I’m a lot further along than I expected to be,” Murray said.

Murray’s participation in the open portion of practice is encouraging for the Cardinals (8-2), who have gone two games without their Pro Bowl quarterback. Murray has been out since injuring his ankle in the final seconds of the Cardinals’ 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers on October 28.

Arizona has lost two of its last three games after starting the season 7-0, and Murray could provide a boost to the offense.

The Cardinals were held to just 169 total yards in a 34-10 loss at home to the Carolina Panthers, the fewest in Kingsbury’s three seasons with the team.

McCoy struggled against the Panthers, completing only 11 of 20 passes for 107 yards and two turnovers (a fumble and an interception) before leaving in the third quarter with a pectoral injury.

Whether or not he’ll…
