Murray carried five times for 12 yards, adding two receptions for seven yards in the Saints' 26-9 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Despite Sean Payton's assertion that Murray would stay involved on offense, he notched just seven touches in Sunday's loss. Surprisingly negative game script certainly played a role in Murray's dud, but his usage is concerning, given his 62 combined touches over the past two weeks. To be fair, Murray out-carried Alvin Kamara by a 5-4 margin, but Kamara saw 10 targets and eight receptions to ultimately lead the backfield in total touches. Murray has a chance to bounce back next week in a divisional matchup with Tampa Bay.
