Kyler Murray will start right away for the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals used the No. 1 overall pick on Murray last week.
When asked on The Rich Eisen Show if the rookie quarterback would start against the Detroit Lions on Sept. 8, general manager Steve Keim quickly answered, "Yes."
"We didn't draft him one overall to ride the pine," Keim added. "I know it's a lot to put on his back, but that's why we drafted him. He's a fierce competitor, and that's what he did at Oklahoma this year. He put the team on his back. They didn't have a great defense, and he knew he had to score on almost every series to give them a chance to win. I sort of like the chances there."
