NFC Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Rams



Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he expects QB Kyler Murray (shoulder) to start Week 12’s game against the Patriots. 

“I know we have done a good job rehabbing this week and he has made some improvements,” Keim said, via Darren Urban of the team’s official site. “We’ll find out soon enough if he’ll be ready to go but our expectations are that Kyler will be ready to go and the rest of the team will step up around him with those receivers lost, guys like Andy Isabella, guys like KeeSean Johnson and Chase (Edmonds) has continued to do a nice job out of the backfield catching the ball.”

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury added that Murray will be a game-day decision. 

“He’s improved each day, which is encouraging. We’ll see what it looks like Sunday and kinda go from there,” Kingsbury said, via Josh Weinfuss. 

Regarding the development of Cardinals LB Isaiah Simmons, Keim said his philosophy is for rookies to be properly prepared by Thanksgiving. 

“We’ve always had a philosophy that rookies come in and they are rookies until we get to about Thanksgiving,” Keim said. “They learn how to be a pro, not only on the field but in the locker room and in preparation. I don’t think it was any different for Isaiah.”
