Friday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 12

The shoulder injury Kyler Murray dealt with in Week 11 won't keep him out Sunday in New England.

The Arizona Cardinals quarterback was removed from the injury report Friday.

"Our expectations are that he'll be ready to go," Keim said earlier Friday on 98.7 Arizona Sports radio, via Darren Urban of the team's official website.

Murray said earlier in the week his absence at practice was precautionary, saying he feels "fine" following Week 11's loss to Seattle.

The Cards are clinging to the final NFC wild-card spot and are one game back in the tough NFC West division. Facing Bill Belichick Sunday, then the division-leader Rams in Week 13, Arizona needs Murray to be at his best to keep pace for a postseason spot.
