The Arizona Cardinals underwent some significant adjustments over the offseason of this NFL season and are currently contending with a forgettable 2022 season that featured only four victories, a last-place finish in the NFC West, and a wounded star quarterback.
After suffering a torn ACL, Kyler Murray’s 2022 campaign with the Cardinals came to an end. This is never a good situation for a quarterback who depends on his mobility to regularly have an effect on the field.
Murray has expressed some uncertainty about his confidence level when he is formally fit enough to return to the field for Arizona, despite the fact that he is a great young quarterback and will almost surely recover from this knee injury.
Kyle Odegard of Compare.bet claims that following a UFC fight, Murray ran into Joe Burrow, the top quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, and inquired about his recovery from the ACL injury he sustained during his first season in the NFL.
Burrow acknowledged that he had to overcome his hesitation in the pocket, and Murray thinks that while his confidence may initially be weak, he will eventually return to form.
Kyler Murray saw Joe Burrow at a UFC fight this offseason and they talked about their torn ACLs. Burrow said he had to work past his initial hesitancy in the pocket.
Kyler: The first time I m out there I might be (nervous), but with the reps, the confidence will grow and grow.

There is no set date for Murray to return to the field of play since he is still trying to rehabilitate his knee to a place where he feels comfortable enough to work.
Given that the team recently released five-time All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and that star defensive end J.J. Watt recently announced his retirement from the NFL, the 2018 Cardinals season could be another trying one for Arizona.
