Murray back on court for Cardinals after COVID-19 fight

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has returned to practice after missing nearly a week with COVID-19.

Murray was in fine form for Saturday’s scrimmage in front of fans at State Farm Stadium. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Murray experienced mild symptoms but was able to attend meetings virtually during quarterback time.

Kingsbury said Murray will be limited to training on Saturday but wants to be on the pitch with his teammates.

It’s been an eventful camp for Murray, who signed a five-year, $230.5 million contract just before training began. He then handled the fallout after a bizarre addendum was discovered in the deal, which called for four hours of “independent study” during in-game weeks.

Murray passionately defended his work ethic days later and the Cardinals eventually withdrew the contract addendum.
