Murphy tore his ACL during Thursday's preseason opener against the Ravens. The 2014 second-rounder is set to hit free agency when the 2017 season comes to a close, so it's a shame he wasn't able to prove his worth in a contract year.
Murphy (suspension) suffered a torn ACL in Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Murphy was already suspended for the first four games of the regular season, but he's now been ruled out for the entire year following an MRI. His now-extended absence will likely result in Preston Smith seeing more time at the strongside linebacker position.
Murphy (knee) will be sent for an MRI, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
The talented defender went down with a knee injury during Thursday's preseason loss and will require further testing. Considering that Murphy is already facing a four-game suspension to start the season, it's unclear whether Thursday's injury will cause him to miss additional time. Preston Smith should continue to see time at the strongside linebacker spot in Murphy's absence.
Murphy sprained his knee against the Ravens on Thursday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.
Murphy played all 16 games last season and recorded 47 tackles and nine sacks. He's out for the first four regular season games with a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance policy. When he returns and is healthy, expect him to vie for a starting role at linebacker.
Murphy (suspension/foot) was cleared for training camp Thursday, JP Finlay of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.
Murphy had offseason surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot, but he's since recovered and isn't expected to be held back at all by that injury. He'll be able to stay with the team and practice through training camp before serving his four game suspension once the regular season kicks off.
