After initially expecting Cardinals QB Colt McCoy to be off concussion protocol and back on the field this Sunday, Kliff Kingsbury has stated that the symptoms have returned, and that David Blough will start against the Falcons.
NFL insider Adam Schefter broke the news this morning.
Cardinals’ QB Colt McCoy experienced more concussion symptoms and is out Sunday vs. Atlanta, per Kliff Kingsbury. Cardinals’ QB David Blough will start vs. the Falcons.

This will be Arizona’s fourth different starting quarterback this season. An impressively high number that has deeply hurt this team throughout the season.
It is currently unclear why the Cardinals are not handing the ball over to third-stringer Trace McSorley for the second straight week.
During these five starts, Blough held a 0-5 record, averaged under 200 yards per game, and threw six interceptions compared to only four touchdowns.
This likely means the Cardinals will stick to a run heavy offense against a Falcons defense that has a bottom ten defense in the NFL.
