Texans' Eric Murray: Returns from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have activated Murray from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Murray wasn't able to play in the final two matchups of the regular season because of the league's COVID-19 protocols. While it is unclear whether the safety contracted the virus, he is now able to rejoin the Texans.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

Murray won't play in Sunday's game against the Bengals. This will be his first missed game of the season. Murray's produced a career-high 71 tackles through 14 games to go along with two sacks and two pass breakups. Jonathan Owens and A.J. Moore will cover for him at strong safety in Week 16.

Texans' Eric Murray: Leads in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray recorded a team-high 11 tackles and two sacks on blitzes in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Bears.

This was not the finest hour for the Texans defense, which allowed Mitch Trubisky and the Bears' offense to shred them. The sacks were the first of the season for Murray, who now has a career-high 66 tackles in 13 games.

Texans' Eric Murray: Records seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had seven tackles in Thursday's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 1.

Murray is part of a revamped secondary, which was a sore spot in 2019. The unit held up well considering Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes was rarely under pressure. The issues on defense were an inability to stop the running game, limited pressure and missed tackles.

Browns' Eric Murray: Heading to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray agreed to a three-year deal potentially worth $20.25 million with the Texans on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Murray played in only three games following Cleveland's Week 7 bye last season due to a knee injury, and he finished the year with 24 tackles (15 solo), one sack and one pass defensed in nine games. The 26-year-old started 11 of 45 games over the previous three seasons with the Chiefs before being shipped to the Browns in April 2019.

Browns' Eric Murray: Free agency looms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray recorded 15 tackles, one sack and one pass defensed over nine games in 2019.

Murray was part of the safety rotation before a midseason knee injury cost him a good portion of the second half. He returned for the final two games and will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. With 54 games of NFL experience over four seasons, Murray will find a home with some team in 2020.

Browns' Eric Murray: Avoids inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is active Week 16 against Baltimore.

Murray will return after a seven-game absence, but the number of snaps available for him is a bit of a question mark with Damarious Randall and Juston Burris locking down the two starting safety spots. Murray started over Burris earlier in the season, accumulating a total of 23 tackles across seven games.

Browns' Eric Murray: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Murray upgraded to a full practice Friday after two limited sessions to begin the week. He's missed the last seven games with the issue.

December 14, 2019 12:20 AM
Browns' Eric Murray: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Murray put in limited practices all week but will miss his seventh straight game. Juston Burris and Sheldrick Redwine will continue to benefit from extra playing time.

December 13, 2019 10:20 AM
Browns' Eric Murray: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is progressing well in his recovery and could return Sunday in Arizona, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Head coach Freddie Kitchens sounded cautiously optimistic about Murray's status ahead of the Browns' Week 15 matchup with the Cardinals. The 25-year-old safety has missed Cleveland's previous six games, so Murray's return would certainly boost the Browns' secondary.

Browns' Eric Murray: Sitting out Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is inactive Week 14 against the Bengals.

Murray worked in practice as a limited participant all week, but still entered the divisional matchup with a "doubtful" tag. He'll end up missing his sixth consecutive game, as expected, paving the way for the tandem of Damarious Randall and Juston Burris to hold down the safety positions.

December 6, 2019 01:00 PM
Browns' Eric Murray: Listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

Murray has missed four consecutive contests while working to recover from knee surgery, and he's trending toward sitting out Sunday's divisional tilt versus Cincinnati. Sheldrick Redwine will continue seeing an uptick in snaps as long as Murray remains sidelined.

Browns' Eric Murray: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Murray will miss his fourth-straight contest as he works to recover from knee surgery undergone in early November. He has yet to resume practicing. As long as Murray is unable to go, Shedrick Redwine will continue to play an expanded depth role in Cleveland's secondary.

November 27, 2019 03:28 PM
Browns' Eric Murray: Still absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) has yet to return to practice since undergoing surgery Nov. 1, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Shedrick Redwine will continue serving as Cleveland's top reserve safety as long as Murray remains out with a knee injury. The 25-year-old has missed the past four weeks and hasn't played since Oct. 27.

November 22, 2019 03:32 PM
Browns' Eric Murray: Out fourth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Murray didn't practice again this week as he continues to be sidelined while recovering from early-November knee surgery. Shedrick Redwine should serve as the top reserve safety in his absence since Justin Burris is starting after Morgan Burnett landed on injured reserve.

Browns' Eric Murray: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's divisional showdown against the Steelers.

Murray will sit for a third-straight week after undergoing knee surgery Nov. 1. He'll benefit from an extended break, because of the Thursday kickoff, but Murray still faces an uphill battle to play Week 12. In his absence, Juston Burris figures to handle the main reserve role.

Browns' Eric Murray: Still battling knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Murray appears to be a long shot to suit up Thursday against the Steelers after undergoing knee surgery Nov. 1. He still has Tuesday and Wednesday to retake the practice field, but the Browns may opt to rest him with the "mini bye" due to the Thursday game. If that's the case, Juston Burris will take over the main reserve role behind Morgan Burnett and Damarious Randall.

Browns' Eric Murray: Ruled out, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Bills, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Murray underwent knee surgery Nov. 1, so it's not much of a surprise that he'll miss a second consecutive contest as he works to recover. With Damarious Randall still nursing a hamstring injury, Juston Burris could be in line for increased snaps once again Week 10.

November 1, 2019 03:12 PM
Browns' Eric Murray: Week-to-week after sugery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray underwent knee surgery Friday and is considered week-to-week.

Murray clearly won't be able to play Sunday against the Broncos and also seems like a longshot to be available for Week 10. Juston Burris could see increased reps at safety with Damarious Randall (hamstring) also ruled out, per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Browns' Eric Murray: Climbs into sack column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had five tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

The tackle total ties Murray's highest of the season as he's often worked as a rotational safety in the secondary. The 27-year-old has 23 tackles (15 solo), one sack and one pass defensed in seven games.
