Cardinals' Colt McCoy out for Week 18, David Blough to remain starter

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy will not play in Week 18's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

What It Means:

McCoy has been shut down for the rest of the season in an effort to ensure he is available for the start of the 2023-24 season. Kliff Kingsbury said Kyler Murray (knee) "probably" won't be ready for the start of next season, and Arizona is anticipating needing McCoy. David Blough will start against the 49ers on Sunday.

Blough's Week 18 projection includes 203.9 yards, 0.81 touchdowns, 0.69 interceptions, and 12.4 FanDuel points.
