Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray carried eight times for 36 yards and caught both of his targets for another 12 yards in Sunday's loss to Washington Huskies .
Another disappointing day at the office for the 27-year-old, who actually rushed for a season-high in yardage, but saw limited action as the Eagles ran the ball just 18 times. Philadelphia's propensity to fall behind has clearly limited Murray's involvement, as they have now run the ball 18 times or fewer in each of their three losses. Another week removed from his hamstring injury and with the struggling New Orleans Saints coming to town, Week 5 presents Murray with a chance to make his first real fantasy impact of the season.
Philadelphia Eagles featured back DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is active Sunday against Washington.
Murray was listed as questionable despite practicing fully Thursday and Friday. He was unable to play last week due to the ailment, and with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles both playing well in Murray's absence, it's possible the latter could get limited touches Sunday against a strong Redskins defense.
Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray is expected to be active Sunday against Washington Huskies . However, he will test out his hamstring during pregame warmups before a decision is made, according to NFL Network.
Murray was able to practice fully Thursday and Friday, so it was a bit surprising that he was officially listed as questionable.
Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles both played very well against the New York Jets last Sunday, so even if Murray plays, he could lose snaps to the other two backs.
Washington has also been excellent against the run, allowing just 75 rushing yards per game through three weeks, which is another knock on Murray's Fantasy upside Sunday.
Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Washington Huskies .
Despite logging full practices Thursday and Friday, Murray didn't earn the probable designation. He still seems more likely to play than not, but owners will want to keep a close eye on the situation, after Murray was surprisingly inactive in Week 3. If Murray misses another game, Ryan Mathews will get most of the carries, with Darren Sproles potentially also taking on a significantly larger role.
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) has been designated as questionable for the Sunday game in Washington.
Kendricks logged full practices throughout the week, which would typically lead to a probable designation. He should be able to play, but between his 'questionable' tag and teammate DeMarco Murray 's surprise absence last week, it would be unwise to assume Kendricks will suit up.
If he does play, Kendricks should be assured of a three-down role, as Kiko Alonso (knee) has been ruled out.
