Kyler has sprained ankle, status for 49ers-Cardinals unclear

Kyler Murray

The 49ers could be facing off against an Arizona Cardinals team without its star quarterback in Week 9 at Levi's Stadium. 

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray sustained an ankle injury in Arizona's Week 8 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and his status for next week's game against the 49ers is in question. 

The Cardinals have not confirmed the severity of the injury, although the team's Twitter account did share the report from Fox Sports' Jay Glazer earlier Sunday afternoon.

Murray has given the 49ers' defense headaches ever since he was drafted No. 1 overall by the Cardinals in 2019. If he does end up missing time, the matchup in Week 9 could very well favor San Francisco.
