Sounds like the Rams will play Murray for the first of what will likely be many NFC West clashes.

The Los Angeles Rams are back on the road to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13, and it sounds like the Cards might have missed an injury scare.

Rookie QB Kyler Murray was designated questionable on the final injury report, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted tonight that Murray will indeed start:

Murray’s having an excellent rookie season after coming out of Oklahoma which he transferred to from Texas A&M. Having amassed more than 2,700 passing yards and throwing 14 touchdowns to just five interceptions to go with his ground work of more than 400 yards with three touchdowns, Murray’s one of the top two favorites right now to win the 2019 NFL Rookie of the Year along with Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs out of Alabama.

The Rams will need a bounceback performance from their defense to deal with Murray after the Week 12 disappointment against the Baltimore Ravens. Here’s hoping they produce one.
