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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Browns' Eric Murray: Headed to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs are trading Murray to the Browns in exchange for defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Browns are trading from a position of strength to address a glaring weakness, bringing in a safety with 11 starts in 45 career games. While the team figures to add competition before training camp, Murray currently slots in as a probable starter alongside Damarious Randall on the depth chart. The 2016 fourth-round pick had 50 tackles (39 solo) in 10 games at one point during the 2018 campaign, but the Chiefs reduced his role throughout December and into the playoffs. Randall is still the best IDP choice among Cleveland defensive backs.

Chiefs' Eric Murray: Won't start Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will not serve as the Chiefs' starting strong safety against the Bengals on Sunday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Murray is active for the Week 7 game, but will secede the starting role to Jordan Lucas. Lucas previously drew the start during Kansas City's loss to the Patriots in Week 6, while Murray was sidelined with an ankle injury.

Chiefs' Eric Murray: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Murray spent the week nursing an ankle injury but appears to have gotten healthy enough to suit up for Kansas City's contest against the Bengals in Week 7. However, Kissel also reports that Jordan Lucas will draw the start at strong safety for the Chiefs. Expect Murray to serve as Lucas' backup.

October 19, 2018 06:36 PM
Chiefs' Eric Murray: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Murray suffered an ankle injury during the Chiefs' loss to New England in Week 6, but has managed to fully participate in practice every day this week. The third-year safety is trending towards suiting up during Sunday's game against the Bengals.
