Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has tested positive for COVID-19.
GLENDALE, Arizona — Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has tested positive for COVID-19.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection tested positive on Sunday. Trainer Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that Murray had “minor” symptoms. The manager added that Murray will be out for at least five days unless he tests negative beforehand.
“I haven’t spoken to him since he tested positive, just texting back and forth, but I know it’s nothing important,” Kingsbury said.
Kingsbury said no other players tested positive during camp.
The positive test continues an eventful few weeks for Murray, who signed a five-year, $230.5 million deal in July. He then dealt with the fallout of a unique “independent study” addendum to that contract mandating a film degree and had an impromptu media availability where he passionately defended his work ethic.
The team eventually dropped the addendum from the contract.
Murray also sat out Saturday’s practice with a sore right wrist. Kingsbury said the injury was “getting better”. Arizona’s backup quarterback is veteran Colt McCoy, who had a 2-1 record in three starts last season.
