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.
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.
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, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site also reports that Jordan Lucas will draw the start at strong safety for the Chiefs. Expect Murray to serve as Lucas' backup.
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.
