Today in The Athletic, Virginia Zakas of Inside Injuries writes on Murray's injury:
[Q:] Is Kyler Murray’s injury able to heal while he still practices and plays, or is it the type of thing where he will be playing at 50% fantasy football effectiveness the rest of the way, running less to protect the shoulder, and not quite 100% passing either? – Jonathan L.

[A:] Playing through the injury will slow down the healing process a bit, but as long as Murray doesn’t aggravate it on a hard fall or big hit to that shoulder he should continue to move in the right direction. It’s just going to take longer to get back to 100%. By video this appeared to be an AC sprain to his right shoulder. This can be very painful but is possible to play through. Murray likely received an injection to manage the pain before the game and will continue to do that over the next few weeks.

According to our algorithm, his HPF (Health Performance Factor — our metric to predict player performance) has been slowly improving over the last few weeks. In Week 12, his first game following the injury, his HPF was 72%. He didn’t look great playing just 10 days after the injury. Now, with another week to rehab, his numbers have improved to 90%.

I expect Murray to look much stronger in Week 13, although he is likely to continue to rely more on his arm than his legs in order to avoid a hit that could lead to an aggravation.

It's just fairly obvious, in the 5 games prior to the Seattle game he had 55 runs, 14 was the game high 9 was the game low. He's had 10 in the 2 games total since then.

his longest completion last week was 19 yards, and that was a jet sweep to Andy. The week before it was 25, that was a backfoot throw to Maxx Wiliams like the 2 backing up ones he had last week. Took arm strength absolutely but he's not turning it loose downfield with deep throws or rockets over the middle. Yes teams are defending him well too but it's pretty apparent he's not the same guy physically right now.

Hopefully another week of rest has got him closer like this says because we have not played well against the Rams, he didn't last year and this is a must win. Giants and Eagles are obviously games we SHOULD win but I'd much rather be 9-5 than 8-6 after the next 3 games.
