Kyler Murray Had To Be Convinced To Play Sunday

Dec 30, 2019 8:45 AM

Kyler Murray, who is dealing with a hamstring injury, said he had to be convinced to play in Sunday's season finale against the Los Angeles Rams.

Murray said his hamstring felt good during a pregame workout during which he tried to accelerate "a couple of times," but it felt sore just before the game. Murray was trying to err on the side of caution but said he had to be talked into playing.

The rookie quarterback injured himself in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks.

"They had to like convince me just because I'm more concerned, not wanting to injure it more, but at the same time, I understood it is what it is," Murray said. "I'm a competitor. If I hurt it, I'm going to hurt it. So, when I was out there I wasn't even thinking about it."

Kliff Kingsbury said after the loss that Murray was not at risk to hurt the hamstring more during the game.

"It was a deal where if he strained it more, he wouldn't have gone," Kingsbury said. "He felt it but really, you saw he didn't try to take off. We didn't run him at all. He did a nice job of not kicking it into fifth gear."
