NAPA, Calif. (AP) Latavius Murray is finally getting the chance to show the Oakland Raiders what kind of running back he can be when healthy.
A year after his rookie season ended in training camp with an ankle injury, Murray is running with the power and determination that made the Raiders so excited to draft him in 2013.
Murray had seven carries for 28 yards and also caught two passes for 13 yards in the exhibition opener at Minnesota on Friday night. He is trying to earn himself regular playing time in a crowded backfield that also includes Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden.
