Former PSU QB Trace McSorley Impresses in Preseason Start For Arizona

Trace McSorley’s 2022 preseason debut was a success.

The former Penn State QB helped the Arizona Cardinals to a 36-23 win Saturday night, getting the start in Arizona’s preseason opener due to regular starter Kyle Murray missing five days while and COVID-19 protocol and backup Colt McCoy being banged up.

McSorley completed 13 of 22 passes for 162 yards and a touchdown pass to Andre Baccellia that ended Arizona’s first possession. McSorley also rushed four times for 32 yards.

McSorley’s night ended in the second half when Jarrett Guarantano took over as starting quarterback. Plays such as the touchdown to Baccellia and this 36-yard pass to Andy Isabella helped make Friday a successful night for McSorley.

With Murray recently receiving a massive contract extension, the starting QB job in Arizona is on lock as long as Murray stays healthy. However, the competition for who will be his backup is less specific, and McSorley helped his cause in the preseason opener.
