Kyler Murray leaves Cardinals-Seahawks game with hamstring injury

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray left Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring injury.

After Brett Hundley replaced him behind center in the third quarter, the Cardinals announced that Murray was questionable to return. He remained sidelined for the remainder of the game.

The Cardinals led the Seahawks 20-7 when Murray left in a game that has big implications at the top of the NFC playoff race for Seattle.

They maintained control of the game for a 27-13 victory that put a dent in Seattle’s hope to land a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs.

Murray looked good before injury

Murray was in the midst of another solid game for the Cardinals, completing 11-of-18 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown with 40 rushing yards on six carries in a little more than a half of action.

He appeared to suffer the injury on a third-down scramble early in the third quarter. The Cardinals kicked a field goal after failing to pick up the first down, and he didn’t return to the game on Arizona’s next possession.

He was seen walking on the sideline with a wrap around his right thigh after he left the game.

Hundley finished completing 4-of-9 pass attempts for 49 yards while adding 35 rushing yards on six carries.

The game meant little for the Cardinals, who improved to 5-9-1 with the win. But the chance to spoil the playoff aspirations of a division rival was surely satisfying.
