DeMarco Murray Is Not Touching Enough Balls, Voices His Displeasure

Murray suffered the injury during practice prior to last week’s game against the New York Jets, and he did not play in Week 3.


The Eagles have activated Murray for today’s game in Washington, a week after he sat out with a hamstring injury. “I think we’ll all watch film and get better”. With windy playing conditions expected in Washington and the Eagles likely to rely on the run, this would seem like a missed opportunity for Murray and his fantasy owners.

Kelly has started 13 games in his career – seven at right tackle (all in 2012), four at right guard and two at left guard. Murray now has a grand total of 47 rushing yards on the season. The pair replaced LeSean McCoy, who was traded to Buffalo, and joined Darren Sproles to give the Eagles depth at running back. He had 1 carry for 30 yards, 7 carries for 6 yards.

“At the end of the day”, Murray said, “you’ve got to make plays”.

“Every guy has to look in the mirror and take accountability for their actions”, Murray said after the loss.
