NFL: Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray inconvenienced by COVID-19

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Arizona Cardinals star quarterback Kyler Murray has tested positive for COVID-19.

The test was obtained on Sunday. Murray has « mild » symptoms, Cards head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday.

Murray will miss at least five days of practice.

« I haven’t spoken to him since the positive result, only texts, but I know it’s nothing major, » Kingsbury said.

Murray signed a five-year, $230.5m contract last month.

He had missed practice on Saturday with pain in his right wrist – an injury that is « getting better », according to Kingsbury.

Carroll has COVID too

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Monday.

The Seahawks released a statement about an hour before the start of their fifth practice at summer camp.

The Seattle team said Carroll – who is fully vaccinated – tested positive on Sunday, has mild symptoms and is staying home. Carroll intends to participate in team meetings virtually until he is cleared to join her.

Carroll is the NFL’s oldest head coach and will celebrate his 71st birthday in mid-September. He was a huge advocate for COVID-19 vaccines and was proud to say the Seahawks finished the 2020 season without a single player testing positive for the virus.

The Seahawks did not say who would lead practices during Carroll’s absence. They are scheduled to hold a mock game at Lumen Field on Saturday, and that would be the earliest Carroll could join the team.
