Murray (knee) did squats Friday, 13 weeks removed from surgery on an ACL tear, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

While he still has a ways to go before he can sprint or do agility work, Murray is showing tangible signs of progress as rumors swirl around the league about what the Cardinals will do with the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming draft. They're widely expected to stick by Murray as the franchise QB, which means they can trade back and accrue more picks or have their choice at No. 3 of any non-quarterback in the draft (assuming the first two picks are signal-callers). The timing and severity of Murray's injury has led many to suggest he could miss the start of the season -- including team owner Michael Bidwell -- but new head coach Jonathan Gannon hasn't quite gone that far, instead merely saying he'll be cautious even if the 25-year-old is eager to get back on the field, per Johnny Venerable of PHNX Cardinals.

Cardinals team owner Michael Bidwill thinks that Murray, who is bouncing back from a torn ACL in his right knee, is ahead of schedule in his recovery, Darren Urban of reports.

Given that Murray suffered his knee injury on Dec. 12 last year and then underwent surgery on Jan. 3, the QB's early-season status for the 2023 NFL campaign remains cloudy. With that in mind, Bidwill suggested that the return of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft "is going to be earlier than this midseason, so hopefully it's toward the beginning of the season," while noting that he doesn't "want to put any specific dates" on a timetable for Arizona's franchise signal-caller. With Murray's top backup Colt McCoy dealing with an undisclosed injury that will limit him this offseason, the Cardinals could look to add QB depth as on-field activities approach. In any case, it appears as though the team (now coached by Jonathan Gannon) is proceeding as though Murray won't be ready for game action in time for Week 1.

Not expected to be ready for Week 1

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-29

Murray, who suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his right knee this past December, is not expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

At this stage, a precise timetable for the QB's return to action remains unclear, but Rapoport relays that it's his understanding Murray "is not going to rush, so do not be surprised if we don't see him to start the season or maybe even by the midway point. This injury has to heal perfectly." Either way, once he re-takes the field, Murray will be working under a new (yet to be determined) head coach, with Kliff Kingsbury having been let go by the Cardinals earlier this month. Meanwhile, veteran signal-caller Colt McCoy is under contract with the team through 2023, but it's possible that Arizona could add another quarterback to the mix this offseason, given Murray's situation.

Unlikely to be ready for Week 1

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-04

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that Murray (knee) "probably" won't be ready for Week 1 of the 2023 season, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

After sustaining a season-ending knee injury Dec. 12, Murray underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ACL as well as his meniscus. It's not clear that Kingsbury will still be the team's coach beyond January, but he noted that he's been in contact with Murray, whose surgery went according to plan. The 25-year-old could be looking at a slightly longer timeline than the norm for quarterbacks returning from ACL tears, as most of the players that made it back for Week 1 after late-season injuries suffered clean tears without additional damage like Murray's meniscus. That said, it's still early in the process, making it too early to rule out Murray for the start of the 2023 season.

Has knee surgery

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-04

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Murray underwent knee surgery Tuesday on the injury that ended his 2022 season on Dec. 12, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The procedure included an ACL reconstruction and a meniscus repair on Murray's right knee and not his left one, per Tyler Drake of Murray thus will be focusing on rehab in the offseason and is a prime candidate to begin training camp on the active/PUP list, which would give the Cardinals time to determine if he'll be ready for Week 1 of next season. With just one game remaining in the current campaign, the team has shut down veteran quarterback Colt McCoy (concussion), allowing David Blough to lead the offense and Trace McSorley to be the backup.
