Coach Jonathan Gannon recently said the team is taking Murray’s recovery ‘one day at a time’
The NFL’s guidelines in regard to the PUP list state that after a player has spent four weeks on the list his team will have a five-week window for him to return to practice.
Following the player’s return to practice he will the team will then have three weeks to activate him to the 53-man roster.
If Murray or any player on the PUP list does not return to the 53-man roster by the end of those deadlines he will be forced to remain on the PUP list for the remainder of the season.
‘[We would] love to have him out there,’ Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said on Sept. 22. ‘He’s itching to be back, but we’ll take that one day at a time.’
Last season before sustaining the injury Murray went 259-390 for 2,368 yards, 14 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
