Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Wednesday that star quarterback Kyler Murray officially underwent successful surgery on his torn ACL, per NFL Media. Murray reportedly needed ACL reconstruction and a meniscus repair.
Murray suffered the injury during the 27-13 loss to the New England Patriots back in Week 14. Just three plays into the game, Murray went down without being touched on a scramble, and was eventually carted off the field. Murray was visibly upset while being taken to the locker room, and coach Kingsbury said he had never seen his quarterback in that type of shape.
Murray went 3-8 for Arizona in 2022, and completed 66.4 percent of his passes for 2,368 yards, 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions while averaging a career-low 215.3 passing yards per game. This past offseason, Murray inked a five-year, $230.5 million contract extension. Unfortunately, this injury should sideline Murray for a portion of the 2023 campaign.
