Report: Cardinals signing QB Trace McSorley off Ravens practice squad

Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback Kyler Murray missed his third consecutive game because of the sprained left ankle he first suffered on Oct. 28 and was a spectator when backup Colt McCoy guided the Cardinals to a 23-13 win at the Seattle Seahawks that improved them to 9-2 on the season ahead of their bye. 

Interestingly, Arizona is adding another arm to the active roster. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cardinals are signing quarterback Trace McSorley off the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens. As Myles Simmons noted for Pro Football Talk, this news comes one day after McSorley was elevated to Baltimore's active roster so he could serve as a backup behind Tyler Huntley after star signal-caller Lamar Jackson couldn't play against the Chicago Bears because of an illness unrelated to COVID-19. 

Huntley helped the Ravens secure a 16-13 win in Chicago. 

McCoy has won two of three starts in Murray's absence and completed 35-of-44 passes for 328 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Seattle. While it's far too early to speculate on Murray's status for the Week 13 matchup at the Chicago Bears on Dec. 5, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro reports the Cardinals parted ways with third-string option Chris Streveler to make room for McSorley, who will have some extra time to learn Arizona's offense just in case he's needed on the first Sunday of December.
