Kyler Murray suffers non-contact knee injury in heartbreaking moment

(12-Dec) —— Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray left tonight’s Monday Night Football game versus the New England Patriots after he suffered a non-contact injury early in the first quarter. He had to be carted off the field and was replaced by Colt McCoy in the offense.

The 25-year-old took off on a run where he scrambled and ran to his right on just the third play of the game but made a bad step which led to him injuring his knee. Murray had more open yards in front of him, but with no player around him, his left knee gave out and he fell to the ground. After going down awkwardly, he failed to get back up and needed to be assisted right away.

As the cart entered the field, Murray got on and you could see the frustration on his face as players from both teams came over to comfort him as he left the field with a towel covering his head in disappointment.

Murray is expected to undergo a scan and further medical evaluation to determine the extent of the injury and the appropriate course of treatment, but all signs are leading to a torn ACL.
