Kyler Murray, 87

Murray played every snap in Week 2 after he was pulled late in the game in Week 1 to put in backups. He did not take every snap. There were a couple of direct snaps to running back Eno Benjamin.

Running back

Darrel Williams, 40; Eno Benjamin, 37; James Conner, 18

Williams got a lot of playing time, which appeared to be in part because of Conner’s ankle injury. They had a few plays with two running backs in the game. Williams took over the role Conner has, while Benjamin kept his normal role.

Wide receiver

Marquise Brown, 81; A.J. Green, 74; Greg Dortch, 62; Andre Baccellia, 19

This was a lot of snaps for this group. Kliff Kingsbury mentioned how the plan is to try and play Green less this season, but that wasn’t possible with only four healthy receivers. That is why Baccellia got 19 snaps.

Tight end

Zach Ertz, 73; Stephen Anderson, 19; Maxx Williams, 12; Trey McBride, 1

McBride was active for the first time and got only one snap. Ertz will normally play this much. Williams continues to be brought back slowly from his knee injury.
