Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray returned to Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams to start the fourth quarter after exiting early in the first quarter with a right ankle injury.

Back-up Chris Streveler took over for Murray until he returned with 14:25 left in the game with the Cardinals down 18-7.

Murray left the game after suffering the injury on a sack by Rams defensive lineman Morgan Fox with 12:14 left in the first. Murray got up limping and went straight to the locker room. He eventually returned to the field, tried to walk off the injury and was evaluated in the blue injury tent but walked back to the locker room.

Murray had his left ankle retaped and warmed up after returning to the sideline but did not play again until the fourth quarter.

Murray spent time in and out of the locker room throughout the first half and early in the third quarter. Streveler took over for Murray and threw a touchdown on his first drive, but the offense didn’t produce much beyond that.

Murray suffered a “lower leg” injury, according to coach Kliff Kingsbury, in the final seconds of last week’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers and said this week he was “feeling good.”
