DeMarco Murray a full participant during Thursday’s practice

The Thursday practice before a Sunday game is often the best way to tell if an injured player will be active. Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was a full participant during practice on Thursday as he attempts to return from a hamstring injury that kep him out in Week 3.

Murray was limited during Wednesday's practice, and despite the upgrade on Thursday, he refused to commit to playing this Sunday.

In Murray's absence last week, the Eagles split up the bulk of offensive touches at running back between Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles. Mathews racked up 108 rushing yards on just 24 attempts, and he added a receiving touchdown as well. If Murray returns to action, it will be difficult to predict how the Eagles will decide to split up the carries in Week 4.
