QB Trace McSorley is in at QB
— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) November 22, 2022
McSorley entered in hardly ideal circumstances, what with the Cardinals losing 38-10 to the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth quarter. 38-10 ended up being the final score.
McSorley didn’t throw any passes in his brief QB appearance the previous week, as the Arizona Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Rams, 27-17.
He threw 10 passes against San Fran, completing six for 59 yards with an interception after coming on for Colt McCoy. McCoy is Arizona’s backup, in an ideal world, but starter Kyler Murray has been nursing an injured hamstring and didn’t play for the second straight week. Last Sunday, McSorley got in the game after McCoy had to leave due to an apparent leg injury. Monday marked the third time McSorley came in for Arizona this season. He also played in the team’s season-opener against the Kansas City Chiefs Sept. 11, completing two of four passes for 12 yards.
McSorley is in his fourth NFL season overall and first full one with the Cardinals. He started his career with the Baltimore Ravens in 2019 and stayed with Baltimore until Arizona signed him off coach John Harbaugh’s practice squad last November. McSorley didn’t make Arizona’s team out of training camp this year, but got promoted from the practice squad before Week 1.
Of course, McSorley is best known to Penn State fans for what he did in college. He left Penn State as the school’s all-time leader in yards, passing touchdowns and wins, among other statistics. He was at Penn State from 2014-18 and started from 2016-18.
