Injury Rounds

Kyler Murray | Right leg contusion | Questionable Week 17

Murray was hit just below the right knee on the final play of the game. The Cardinals will evaluate him during the week. If he's able to return to practice by midweek, he'll have a good chance to play this week. Any concern would likely prompt the team to hold him out.

Monday Update: The Cardinals did not update Murray's condition. Kliff Kingsbury would only say the team was "hopeful" Murray would be able to return this week. While he's more likely probable than doubtful, watch practice participation carefully this week.

Deshaun Watson | Right arm injury | Questionable Week 17

Watson injured his right arm on two separate plays and was able to finish the game. The Texans plan imaging studies on Monday. Watson said he felt "pretty fine" after the game and expects to play. Video showed stress on his throwing elbow, however, and any weakness or stiffness in the joint early this week will likely prompt Houston to sit Watson this week.

Monday Update: Initial indications are Watson's injury is "not serious" and Romeo Crennel told reporters Watson would play if cleared by the team's medical staff.
