News: Murray gained 59 yards on 12 carries Sunday. Impact: Murray has 247 yards over the last three weeks and could do some damage next week versus the Bills.(STATS, 10:49am)
Dec 14, 2014
News: Murray had 12 carries for 59 rushing yards and two catches on six targets for 17 receiving yards Sunday against the Chiefs. Impact: Murray led the Raiders' backfield again, ceding just two carries to Darren McFadden (13 yards) and two to Maurice Jones-Drew (six yards). It doesn't get any easier in Week 16 against the Bills, who are allowing the eighth-fewest rushing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Dec 8, 2014
News: Murray ran for 76 yards in Sunday's 24-13 win over San Francisco. Impact: While the numbers weren't overly impressive, Murray received a whopping 23 carries. He could be in for another big workload next week against the Chiefs, whom he torched for 112 yards and two TDs in Week 12 before exiting with a concussion.(STATS, 3:47pm)
Dec 7, 2014
News: Murray (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Impact: As expected, Murray is back in action Sunday, and though he may work in some form of a rotation with Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew on Sunday, his impressive Week 12 showing (112 yards and two touchdowns on four carries against the Chiefs) figures to lead to an expanded workload Sunday, thus making Murray the upside play in Oakland's Week 14 backfield.(RotoWire, )
Dec 7, 2014
News: Murray (concussion) had 23 carries for 76 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for nine yards in Sunday's 24-13 win over the 49ers. Impact: Murray didn't break off any long runs, but he got practically all the work on the ground for the Raiders, as Darren McFadden had just four rushes for five yards. Next week, he'll face the Chiefs, who he torched for 112 yards and two touchdowns on just four carries in Week 12.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Dec 5, 2014
News: Murray (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Impact: The second-year back passed league protocol early in the week and was able to practice in full both Thursday and Friday, eliminating any doubt as to his availability for Sunday. Prior to suffering the injury in Week 12, Murray rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns on just four carries against the Chiefs. The performance has earned Murray a larger share of the touches, but interim coach Tony Sparano suggested he won't take on a true workhorse role just yet, saying Murray is "a guy you have to continue to rotate." Further, CSNBayArea.com reports that Murray has continued to take "lower-team reps" in practice this week, so while it would seem to go against all common sense if he didn't see the lion's share of the touches over Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew, common sense doesn't always apply with the Raiders.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Dec 4, 2014
News: Murray (concussion) practiced fully Thursday, the Raiders' official site reports. Impact: There's little doubt that Murray will play Sunday against the 49ers, with his potential workload in that contest the more pressing question. For his part, coach Tony Sparano suggests that "for right now, Latavius is a guy who's going to be a guy you have to continue to rotate." That said, while Murray may work in tandem with Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew on Sunday, his impressive Week 12 showing (112 yards and two touchdowns on four carries against the Chiefs) will almost assuredly lead to an expanded workload Sunday, thus making Murray the upside play in this weekend's Oakland backfield.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Dec 4, 2014
News: Murray (concussion) has been cleared to play against the 49ers on Sunday, insidebayarea.com reports. Impact: Meanwhile, NFL.com relays that as impressive as Murray has been with limited touches of late, coach Tony Sparano isn't quite ready to declare Murray as the Raiders' "workhorse" back just yet, with Sparano suggesting that the team plans to use the running back as part of a rotation in his return to action. That said, given the modest production that veterans Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew have provided the 1-11 Raiders this season, we suspect that there's a solid chance that said rotation will be led by Murray, given his highly promising effort in Week 12 against the Chiefs, in which he recorded 112 rushing yards (including a 90-yard run) and two TDs on four carries.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Dec 3, 2014
News: Murray (concussion), who has been cleared to play in advance of Sunday's game against the 49ers, was limited at practice Wednesday, Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times reports. Impact: More on Murray's status as the week progresses, but if he is able to continue to practice setback-free, we suspect that he'll have an opportunity to spark the Raiders' Week 14 rushing attack Sunday. The last time Murray played, he opened eyes with a highly-promising effort in Week 12 against the Chiefs, which saw him record 112 rushing yards (including a 90-yard run) and two scores on four carries.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 27, 2014
News: Murray has been cleared to play this week against San Francisco after missing the previous game with a concussion. Impact: Murray was officially cleared Tuesday morning and was back at practice on Wednesday.(STATS, 3:11pm)
