Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will make his season debut Sunday against the visiting Atlanta Falcons, coach Jonathan Gannon confirmed Friday.
“Yeah, Kyler’s going to start,” said Gannon, who added that he’s “excited for the guy.”
Murray hasn’t played since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Dec. 12, 2022 against the New England Patriots.
The Cardinals (1-8) dropped their sixth straight decision with a 27-0 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. After Arizona traded quarterback Joshua Dobbs to the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 30, rookie Clayton Tune made his first NFL start and completed 11 of 20 passes for 58 yards and two interceptions.
Murray, 26, has started all 57 games he has played over four seasons, completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 13,848 yards, 84 touchdowns and 41 interceptions. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2020 and 2021, while guiding Arizona into the playoffs following the 2021 season.
