Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is not expected to return from the Reserve/PUP list when he's eligible in Week 5 and is still considered "weeks away from playing," according to sources Saturday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: It could be a while until Murray returns and even when he does, there will be some adjustment period. Depending on how much he runs coming off the ACL reconstruction will determine his upside, but there's a good chance he provides back-end QB1 value once he gets rolling.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is not expected to be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list before Tuesday, Aug. 29. If he is not activated before then, Murray will be ineligible to play the first four games of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Arizona's recent trade for Joshua Dobbs hinted that was likely the case since teams do not carry four quarterbacks on their active roster. The Cardinals already had Colt McCoy (who was just released Monday) and rookie Clayton Tune before adding Dobbs. Regardless of which non-Murray starts for Arizona, he should not be anywhere close to a fantasy roster outside of superflex or two-quarterback leagues. However, Murray is a worthy stash in leagues that have IR spots.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 26.
Huddle Up: Murray wants to be ready for the season, but that's a tall order. He's best utilized as a QB2 to mix and match with another low-end QB2 or high-end QB2.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) said his goal is to be ready to play in Week 1. "That's the goal," Murray said. "At the end of the day, that's the goal, but I can't really look that far ahead. Got to take it one day at a time."
Huddle Up: It seems doubtful that Murray will be ready for the opener, and the Cardinals will almost certainly take a cautious approach with their quarterback. His dual-threat ability gives him as much upside as any player at the position, and for fantasy owners willing to stash him, Murray could be a major X-factor down the stretch run.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) posted a video of him doing squats with weights 13 weeks after undergoing surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Murray is making progress but is still a question mark for the start of the 2023 season. Fantasy players will need to monitor his situation during the offseason because he can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback when healthy.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) will play "whenever he is ready to play," according to head coach Jonathan Gannon, who avoided putting a definite timeline on when Murray on his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament because "you're always wrong when you do that."
Huddle Up: Estimates on Murray's timeline are all over the place, but it appears to be a safe bet he will miss at least a part - perhaps a significant part - of the 2023 season. Backup Colt McCoy is also going to be limited to begin the offseason, meaning there is a very real chance Trace McSorley or David Blough will see substantial playing time in the preseason and possibly even the regular season if McCoy struggles yet again to stay healthy. Murray appears to be a great IR stash candidate right now in fantasy leagues that have multiple IR spots.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) could be back earlier in the season than midseason, according to owner Michael Bidwill. "I think (his return) is going to be earlier than this midseason, so hopefully, it's toward the beginning of the season, but I don't want to put any specific dates," Bidwill said.
Huddle Up: Murray had a rough season last year and is coming off a torn ACL. With such depth at the position in fantasy, it would be significant risk to take him as anything more than an upside backup.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) is not expected to be ready for the beginning of the 2023 season, as he recovers from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn meniscus. There is a possibility that he could miss the first half of the season, in order to allow for enough time for the injury to heal completely, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on Murray's rehab during the offseason and those who have him in dynasty leagues should have contingency plans in place for 2023.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) had successful surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a meniscus, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said on Wednesday, Jan. 4.
Huddle Up: Murray will face a lengthy recovery, and as a result of the injury happening so late in the season, it's very possible he misses the start of next season. Fantasy owners who have Murray rostered in dynasty formats need to have a contingency plan in place for 2023.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (knee) will undergo surgery in the next two to three weeks to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament and will be sidelined for at least eight and a half months, according to sources. Murray also has a meniscus tear but the other ligaments in the knee are fine.
Huddle Up: Murray probably will be questionable for the start of the 2023 season, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on his rehab during the offseason. Colt McCoy will be the starter for the rest of this season but can be avoided in most leagues.
