Jonathan Gannon remains tight-lipped on Kyler Murray’s return

Arizona Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon talks to his team before they play the Cincinnati Bengals at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on Oct. 8, 2023.

As Week 6 approaches, Arizona Cardinals HC Jonathan Gannon continues to withhold any information regarding the anticipated return of Kyler Murray to the gridiron.

Kyler Murray started the season on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, with a mandatory four-week absence from play. With that period now in the rearview mirror, Murray is technically eligible to make his comeback at any moment.

However, whether it’s a reflection of Murray’s ongoing health concerns or the fact that the Cardinals’ postseason prospects are dim, Gannon appears in no rush to usher Murray back onto the practice field, let alone into game action.

Following a disappointing Week 5 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, where backup quarterback Joshua Dobbs threw two interceptions and posted a lackluster QBR of 57.6, Gannon remained tight-lipped about the status of the Cardinals’ “franchise” quarterback.

The lingering silence on Murray’s situation has sparked rampant speculation that Arizona may be moving on from their former first-round pick.

Naturally, these rumors will continue to gain momentum as long as Murray is kept off the field.
