Kyler Murray back from COVID-19

Despite the fact Kyler Murray’s independent study clause was removed from his new contract, Mike Florio and Chris Simms explore why the damage is already done and what it says about the QB and the organization.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is back on the practice field.

Murray returned to training camp today after missing five days because he tested positive for COVID-19.

Under this year’s NFL rules, players must miss at least five days after they test positive for COVID-19. There is no mandatory testing of players, so the only players who get tested will be those who report they’re feeling symptoms.
