The Arizona Cardinals released their first injury report of the week, and it is not exactly what fans want to see.
For starters, QB Kyler Murray did not practice with the team this Wednesday due to a hamstring injury. Although it was only a walkthrough, this is a concern for Arizona, as the hamstring is not something the Cardinals want to rush back into game action.
As of now, Murray is listed as day-to-day, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
#AZCardinals QB Kyler Murray is considered day-to-day with his hamstring injury, source said. Not nothing. But not catastrophic. Stay tuned this week.

Murray was joined on the bench by five offensive linemen during practice. Kelvin Beachum, Cody Ford, Max Garcia, Will Hernandez, and Rodney Hudson are all dealing with injuries of their own. Offensive line injuries have been a killer for the Cardinals all year.
In the last three quarters of last week’s matchup against the Seahawks, Arizona was missing three players in the interior line position. This makes it extremely difficult to establish any sort of running game, as noted by HC Kliff Kingsbury.
Lastly, there were a couple of defensive players who did not practice to start the week.
S Budda Baker and CB Byron Murphy Jr. found themselves on the injury report. Baker, in particular, is already out for this Sunday’s game against the Rams due to an ankle injury. Murphy, on the other hand, will be day-to-day as the severity of his back injury is still up in the air.
