Kyler Murray has announced that his ACL surgery was a success and that the road to recovery has begun. The 2019 Rookie of the Year posted to his Twitter on Wednesday morning, sharing the good news with fans across the league.

While Murray was not playing at his best in the weeks leading up to the tear, the injury should serve as a reset button for the young quarterback.
With just four seasons under his belt, there is plenty of time and room for improvement once the rehab process is complete.
However, new reports have suggested that Murray will not be able to play in the first couple of weeks of the 2023 season.
Kliff Kingsbury has announced that there is a good chance the Cardinals will be without their franchise quarterback for at least opening weekend.
The typical recovery length for an ACL tear is eight and a half months, meaning Kyler should, at the latest, be good to go by the end of September. This is, of course, if the rehab process goes entirely according to plan.
As of now, it is unknown who that quarterback will be for Arizona on opening day, but recent speculations point towards David Blough, who will start his second game for the Cardinals this Sunday.
