Kyler Murray played three drives, threw 3-for-8 and 12 yards while being flagged for two false start penalties in his second preseason game with the Arizona Cardinals against the Oakland Raiders Thursday evening. The Raiders were up 26-0 when he exited in the second quarter.
The former Sooner quarterback ran for a four yard gain but struggled on the rest of the drive, going 1-3 for just seven yards and a false start penalty. His second drive featured Murray going 0-2 along with a second false start penalty. Murray was sacked for a safety on his third and final drive.
They really called false start on Kyler Murray lol, not sure I've seen a QB called for that out of the shotgun. Kyler is not pleased. pic.twitter.com/zwmRCA2wOV

All the worry about Kyler Murray’s size in the NFL, Kliff Kingsbury calling every play with a quick read as Murray follows suit. Aside from both his OTs not blocking on the last play, a lot of good from this drive *in the preseason* pic.twitter.com/RRj21pFv72— George Balekji NBC15 (@GeorgeBalekji) August 16, 2019
