Philadelphia Eagles Rumors and News: DeMarco Murray not touching the ball

“You know, I love this offense, I love playing with these guys and it’s how it is”. “It’s just how it is”.


Murray rushed only eight times for 36 yards on Sunday’s loss to the Washington Redskins. When asked will he take his concerns to the coaching staff, “I don’t need to go to anyone”, Murray said. We’ll all watch film and get better.

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.

Kelly has started 13 games in his career – seven at right tackle (all in 2012), four at right guard and two at left guard.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Murray ran for 1,845 yards last season with the Eagles’ primary rival for NFC East supremacy, the Dallas Cowboys.


“I knew I was going to be the lead guy”, Murray said. “I didn’t want to do anything to set myself back or hurt the team and kind of be selfish and go out there and not be myself”. It’s not a great matchup to play any of the Eagles running backs, especially with the uncertainty in workload and the conditions of the field in Washington. “I knew what I was coming in here to do”. Ryan Mathews played well against the Jets in Week 3 and makes for a strong RB2 play in Week 4 if Murray sits.
