The Arizona Cardinals had the weekend off after playing the Green Bay Packers Thursday night. Those couple of days will probably largely benefit Kyler Murray. Murray sprained his ankle towards the end of Thursday's game, and it's been kind of a wait-and-see situation as far as his availability goes for Week Nine.
Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush won on Sunday night while starter Dak Prescott healed from an injury, throwing two touchdowns and an interception. While he started off shaky, Rush got into a rhythm and began look comfortable. "I felt like I belonged out there. You're in the huddle, breaking the o-line, going through your processes. It didn't feel overwhelming at all."
With their starting quarterback Jameis Winston going down in Sunday's game with a season-ending knee injury, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is non-committal on bringing in another quarterback. The team has Trevor Siemian, Taysom Hill, and rookie Ian Book on deck.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo proved a lot of people wrong on Sunday in front of his hometown crowd. But Jimmy G was the first to say that the win was not about him. "I think our team just needed a win. Losing four in a row like that, you've got to do something about it. I think our guys did."
Hopefully we will have an end to this soon. I'm tired of hearing about it and tired of talking about it. Now that that's out of the way, Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores was once again asked about the potential Deshaun Watson trade happening this week, and he once again was mum in his response. "I basically answer [this question] every day the same way. Tua is our quarterback."
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson wants to be back as soon as he possibly can (and that's probably a good idea.) He took a big step towards that goal on Monday, as he got his pin removed from his injured finger.

The San Francisco 49ers are on a bye this week, and both quarterbacks are having injury issues. Perfect timing? Head coach Kyle Shanahan thinks starter Jimmy Garoppolo should be ready to go by Week Seven, when they take on the Indianapolis Colts. "I think he'll be ready to go next week when we get back. That's the plan. I know he's doing a lot better than he was last week."
Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson and the New York Jets in general are struggling so far this season. New head coach Robert Saleh is making his point (while at the same time doing something he shouldn't) by comparing him to one of the best in the game right now: Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen. "It's not easy being a rookie quarterback, never has been, never will be. Josh Allen the first five games of his rookie year, the numbers were the same as what our guy is going through. I know it can be frustrating sometimes, but it's going to start clicking. It's a rollercoaster ride and you have to take the good with the good, and the bad with the bad."
