Cardinals and Seahawks set to clash in key NFC West showdown

  Cardinals and Seahawks set to clash in key NFC West showdown SEATTLE — There was very little time for Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins to enjoy the wave of celebration after one of the great game conclusions in Arizona Cardinals history. Too much is at stake Thursday night when the Cardinals travel to Seattle. The heroics of what Murray and Hopkins pulled off last Sunday with a last-second desperation touchdown for a 32-30 victory over Buffalo created the opportunity for Arizona to take control of the NFC West race if it can win in Seattle for the fifth time in the past six seasons. “Going to Seattle is always a great atmosphere – you can’t deny that.

The 2018 Olympic gold medallist fractured his T4 and T5 vertebrae while training on the course in Ruka, Finland, where the first competition of the 2020-2021 season will be held this weekend.

Kingsbury, who fell after landing a jump, is expected to miss four to six weeks.

The expected timeline would see him miss the first three events of the season.

The skier from Deux-Montagnes, Que., has returned home for rehab and recovery.

“My jump was good but I landed in the wrong place. Though I tried to protect myself, my back took the brunt of the impact,” Kingsbury said in a statement.

“The good news is that the fractures are at the back of the mid-spine vertebrae, so no nerves were affected.”
