Kingsbury: Kyler's clap snap issues will be solved

The Arizona Cardinals are still working with the NFL on how to fix the issues with rookie quarterback Kyler Murray's clap snap that led to two false starts Thursday, but coach Kliff Kingsbury feels like "we're in a good place with it."

Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray went 16-for-25 with two interceptions during 11 on 11 on Saturday, by my count. He once again started slow, throwing a pick on his fourth pass and beginning 1-for-4. He got into a rhythm during a 2-minute drill, which he capped off with a touchdown to fellow rookie WR Andy Isabella.

Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray will play at least the entire first half next Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings in both teams' third preseason game, coach Kliff Kingsbury said Saturday. After the half, Kingsbury the Cardinals will "go from there" regarding Murray's snap count. "We'll see how the game is going," Kingsbury said. "Love to get some positive plays early, some good drives going. Gotta eliminate those penalties and see where he's at mentally, and we'll go from there. But I expect him to play the most he's played in the preseason."

Cards' Murray struggles with snap issues, flags

Losing to the Raiders, 33-26, wasn't the story for the Cardinals on Thursday night. Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray struggled in all four of his possessions, finishing the day 3-for-8 passing for 12 yards while running once for four yards. But he looked out of sorts throughout. The major storyline coming out of the second preseason game will be Murray's two false start penalties due his clap snap.

Murray not concerned about lack of scheme reps

Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray says he is not worried that he won't run his offensive scheme in its entirety during the preseason and is convinced he will be ready Week 1 against Detroit because of how well he knows the system.

Cardinals rookie QB Kyler Murray is making it clear he does not like questions relating baseball to football. During a question today about how playing baseball has helped his throwing angles in football, Murray said under his breath: "I've answered that question like 1,000 times.” Then, in his actually response, Murray said: "It helps a lot."

Suspended Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson's first-team reps are starting to decline as his replacements begin getting more opportunities. That means that Peterson won't be on the field as much to face rookie Kyler Murray, who enjoys squaring off against the eight-time Pro Bowler. "He likes going at him for whatever reason," coach Kliff Kingsbury said. "I've tried to talk him out of it but it's his competitive nature."

Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray went 9-for-11 passing in 11 on 11 and 6 for 9 in 7 on 7 today, by my count. He was intercepted twice -- once in 11 on 11 and once in 7 on 7. But what stood out was how often Murray went under center, especially in the red zone. The Cardinals also worked on their handoffs more today tan they have in a while.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury opened his press conference today with some words about Darryl Drake, the former Cardinals assistant, who died Sunday: "Our condolences go out to coach Darryl Drake, his family and loved ones as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers. I never had the pleasure working with coach Drake but listening to stories about him and his time here, he was an amazing man, amazing coach. Anytime you coach 40 years in this profession, you impact a lot of lives, and so we just want to send our heart out to his loved ones and we're thinking about him."
