Murray could suit up and be ready to go as early as Week 8 against the Ravens if he continues to progress well. Josh Dobbs has played serviceably in relief of Murray despite the Cardinals’ 1-5 record, but it’s clear that a healthy Murray could make a difference to help make the Cardinals competitive once again. If Murray would be able to make his return in Week 8, he would have a tough slate of games to work through in his first action of the 2023 season: back-to-back bottom-4 matchups against Baltimore and Cleveland would make him an uncomfortable start in both. Despite the tough matchups, Murray’s return is obviously good news for the Cardinals’ receiving weapons, with Marquise Brown, Michael Wilson, and Zach Ertz slated to see significant upgrades as soon as he’s back on the field. There’s a chance he doesn’t return fully to form in 2023, but even Murray at 75% is enough to make him a high-end QB2.
