Cardinals Face Quarterback Conundrum: Kyler Murray or Clayton Tune to Start?

Following the Cardinals’ Sunday loss to the Ravens, head coach Jonathan Gannon had initially announced that Joshua Dobbs would be granted another start at quarterback. However, a change of plans emerged on Monday. Gannon revealed that either Kyler Murray or rookie Clayton Tune would be entrusted with the starting role. This decision was informed by a thorough review of the film from the Ravens’ game.

Kyler Murray, who had been sidelined since tearing his ACL last season, now finds himself in contention for the starting position. Gannon emphasized the team’s intention to monitor Murray’s progress throughout the week and gradually elevate his involvement.

Nonetheless, reports circulating in the media suggest that the Cardinals are leaning towards having Clayton Tune start the upcoming game against the Browns. This would mark Tune’s second regular-season appearance, with his first being a single pass for four yards during a fake punt in Week Seven.

Gannon also mentioned that they were exploring various scenarios, including having Kyler Murray as Tune’s backup if he doesn’t secure the starting role. As the Cardinals prepare to face the Browns in Week Nine, many details are yet to be finalized, keeping the situation fluid and full of anticipation.
