Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will return Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers after missing two games with a hamstring injury.

Murray was a full participant in the Cardinals' practice sessions this week, and Arizona didn't give him an injury designation ahead of Week 12.

"He's had a good week," head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday, according to Nick Shook of "He got some full-speed reps today, looked sharp. We're excited.

"He feels great, feels 100%," he added.

Murray is coming back amid a stretch in which the Cardinals have lost three of their past four contests. Colt McCoy started in place of Murray the past two weeks, compiling a 1-1 mark.

Murray led the Cardinals to a 3-6 record prior to sustaining the hamstring issue. The two-time Pro Bowler has 2,168 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions in nine starts in 2022. He's also added 359 rushing yards for two scores.

Kingsbury also said he feels good about getting wide receiver Marquise Brown back for Sunday. The dynamic receiver suffered a fractured foot in Week 6 and was placed on injured reserve. He returned to practice nearly a week ago and is trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's contest.

"He's been progressing," Kingsbury said.

The Cardinals sit in third place in the NFC West with a 4-7 record.
