The Cardinals have gone with Chris Streveler as the only backup quarterback behind Kyler Murray recently, but the team may take a different approach to Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
Murray is working through a problem in his right shoulder that he picked up in last Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks. He worked on the side at Tuesday’s practice and declared himself “fine” after the session, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury is not ready to say he is a sure thing for Sunday.
“We need to see today how he progresses,” Kingsbury said via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. “I feel positive, but we want to make sure he is able to play his game and play at a high level.”
Given the uncertainty, Kingsbury said via several reporters that the team could have Brett Hundley active with Streveler to provide additional insurance against any problems with Murray’s shoulder. This decision is likely to be influenced by how practice plays out the rest of the week.
