After missing two weeks due to injury, Murray made his mark, barreling into the end zone for Oakland's first touchdown of the game in the second quarter and then weaving for a nine-yard score to put the game out of reach in the fourth. Murray won't impress much with his yardage -- he's yet to reach 60 yards this season -- but he's scored in four of the five games he's been active for and five times overall. His powerful style makes him a quality option in an offense that offers plenty of goal-line looks.
Murray (turf toe) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
As long as he avoids any setbacks Sunday, Murray appears poised to head the Raiders' Week 7 rushing attack, which also includes DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. In four outings prior to his two-game absence, Murray carried 40 times for 172 yards, while scoring a TD in each of Oakland's first three contests.
Murray (toe) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but he is expected to play, CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair reports.
Murray has missed Oakland's last two tilts due to turf toe, and although he was limited during practice this week, he's still slated to suit up Sunday. While the Raiders have frustrated fantasy owners with their mixture of running backs lately, Murray still leads the team with 43 rushing yards per game and three touchdowns on the ground. In fact, prior to his disappointing Week 4 performance, Murray scored in each of Oakland's first three contests.
Murray (turf toe) practiced again Thursday, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.
Per Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group, things went well in Murray's return to practice Wednesday, and the Raiders are hopeful that the running back will be able to return to action Sunday against the Jaguars. More on Murray's status no later than Friday, upon the release of the Raiders' final Week 7 injury report.
Murray (turf toe) performed well in practice Wednesday with what he was expected to do and remains day-to-day, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.
Murray's limited participation Wednesday still leaves questions regarding his status for Week 7, but the fact that he did what he was asked to do bodes well. The back's activity during the Thursday and Friday practice sessions should tell more about his availability against the Jaguars on Sunday.
