The Arizona Cardinals will get back quarterback Kyler Murray this week, barring any setbacks in practice this week, meaning he will start at home against the Atlanta Falcons.
He isn’t the only player expected to come back from injury.
Head coach Jonathan Gannon gave injury updates about two starting offensive linemen, running back James Conner and receiver Michael Wilson.
Let’s see what the word is on each of them.
Humphries injured his ankle on Sunday. Hernandez hurt his knee. According to ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss, the X-ray on Humphries’ ankle was clean.
Gannon didn’t have any details about things yet.
“We’re sorting through it right now,” he said. ‘They both got a little nicked up, but we’ll see how the week goes.”
That sounds hopeful, at best.
Conner can come off injured reserve this week if he is ready. He has missed the necessary four games. It sounds like he is on track to play, coming off the knee injury.
“He’s doing well too,” Gannon said. “He’ll ramp up and we’ll see how he does. Hopefully we’ll get him out there too.”
Wilson missed the game on Sunday with a shoulder injury. He was questionable to play despite missing practice all week.
He is on track to play this week as of now.
“He should ramp up this week,” Gannon said. “We’ll see how the week goes but he’s progressing well.”
