Cardinals first-round QB Kyler Murray says he’s unfazed by the hype surrounding him.
“I don’t feel pressure,” Murray said, via ESPN.com.
“I got to go out and play well,” Murray added. “And if I don’t, then people are gonna be mad, I’m gonna be mad, everybody’s gonna be mad. So, my focus is play well.”

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said during a radio interview on Friday that they’re “counting on” DE Ziggy Ansah being ready for Week 1.
“Oh, sure. We’re counting on it,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk. “I’m counting that he’s going to make it. I don’t see any reason that he wouldn’t. He’s doing great, has made progress throughout, did more again yesterday and he’ll continue to do that. I’m not really concerned about the preseason games for him. I just want to get him to game time if we can. Hopefully in the next couple weeks he’ll be able to practice and do everything and he’ll have a couple good weeks of practicing with us at full tempo and that will get him ready for the season.”
