News: Murray continued his impressive streak, rushing for 141 yards on 19 carries in a loss to Washington on Monday night. Impact: He's extended his NFL-record run to eight straight 100-yard efforts to start a season. He's already run for more than 1,000 yards in his eight games.(STATS, 8:29pm)

News: Murray gained 141 yards on 19 carries and 80 yards on four receptions in Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Redskins. Impact: Murray came out strong with 40 yards on seven first-quarter carries, but he then lost a fumble -- his fifth of the season -- at the end of a 36-yard reception early in the second quarter. He later broke off a 51-yard run to top 100 yards for the eighth time in eight tries this season, and while the 19 carries were his fewest of the year, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar only combined for four. Now sitting at 1,054 rushing yards on 206 carries through eight games, Murray is on pace to challenge the single-season records for both carries and rushing yards. He's also provided a nice boost to the passing game, notching 17 receptions over the past four games. Next week, he'll face a resilient Arizona defense that has surrendered just 77.9 rushing yards per game, despite suffering an unusual number of injuries in the front seven.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants. Impact: Murray will be good to go against the Giants, who are surrendering an average of 116 yards per game (18th in the NFL). He proved last week that he can be effective against any defense, but having a good matchup certainly doesn't hurt.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray (illness) set an NFL record Sunday by opening the season with his seventh straight 100-yard rushing game. He finished with 28 carries for 128 yards and a touchdown on the ground, while catching the lone pass thrown his way for four yards. Impact: Murray appeared to ding up his ankle in the first half, but it turned out to be nothing, as he once again ran wild and broke Jim Brown's previous record. Not that we'd doubt him to extend the record, but he'll face a strong Washington rush defense in Week 8.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray is the first running back in NFL history to start a season with seven straight 100-yard games. He carried 28 times for 128 yards with his seventh TD in a 31-21 win over the Giants. Impact: The NFL rushing leader reached 100 yards on a 1-yard plunge early in the fourth quarter for the Cowboys against the Giants on Sunday. The fourth-year back from Oklahoma was tied with Hall of Famer Jim Brown, who hit the century mark in six straight games to start the 1958 season for Cleveland.(STATS, 5:47pm)

News: Murray (illness) is probable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Impact: Murray's illness is no threat to his Sunday availability, and this is an encouraging matchup for him. The Giants have allowed 4.4 yards per carry so far in 2014, and Murray is looking matchup-proof anyway after pummeling the Seahawks in Seattle to the tune of 146 yards and a touchdown from scrimmage.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Murray owners can breath a sigh of relief. The illness that kept him out of practice Wednesday has abated, and the league's leading rusher should be ready to go for Sunday's divisional clash against the Giants, barring any setbacks.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports. Impact: With his presence confirmed at drills, Murray's bout with illness appears to be nearing an end. However, until his level of participation is evident, his standing as he approaches Sunday's divisional showdown with the Giants is unknown. Continue to monitor his status, which should be clarified by weeks end.(RotoWire, )

News: Murray ran 29 times for 115 yards and a score Sunday versus Seattle, also catching six passes for 31 yards. Impact: Murray has been the best non-quarterback in fantasy thus far with MVP-like numbers.
