Bills' Marcus Murphy: Runs for 31 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy ran for 31 yards on six carries during Sunday's 47-3 loss to the Ravens.

It was a solid, but unspectacular, season debut for Murphy. How much stock do you put into a game that was over so early? One thing to look out for is this: both quarterbacks need a security blanket. That might mean that Shady McCoy gets more involved in the passing game and his backup gets more carries as he rests up. Monitor Buffalo's depth chart.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Working as No. 2 running back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy seems to have surpassed Chris Ivory as the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

Throughout training camp and the preseason, Buffalo running backs ran through drills in the same order they were listed on the depth chart. While Ivory was that No. 2 guy into drills behind LeSean McCoy for the vast majority of the offseason, Murphy assumed that responsibility in practice both Monday and Wednesday. If a changing of the guard has truly taken place -- which wouldn't be a surprise given Murphy's impressive preseason -- Ivory would no longer be the preferred handcuff to McCoy, who's at risk of a potential suspension while his off-the-field legal concerns unfold.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Making a run at No. 3 spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy carried seven times for 35 yards and caught four passes for 30 yards in Thursday's preseason opener, scoring one of the Bills' three touchdowns on a seven-yard run.

The Bills seem set at the top two running back spots between veterans LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory, but the coaching staff has been raving about Murphy -- who signed with the Bills last November -- for much of the summer and he has a legit chance to beat out Travaris Cadet and Taiwan Jones for the No. 3 spot. All three have abilities in the return game, which might end up being the deciding factor in who the Bills keep entering the regular season.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Likely reduced to depth role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy's teammate LeSean McCoy (ankle) is active for Sunday's playoff game in Jacksonville.

McCoy is far from 100 percent, so there's still a chance he can't gut it through the entire game and a number of carries and short catches end up falling to Murphy, who totaled 48 yards from scrimmage in Week 17. However, given that Mike Tolbert is also in the mix and that McCoy plans to give it a full go, Murphy's role is more likely to be minimal.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Could see expanded role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is poised for a larger workload Sunday at Jacksonville with LeSean McCoy's (ankle) status up in the air, Sal Maiorana of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports.

Murphy has spent less than two months in the Bills organization, but his promotion to the 53-man roster before Week 17 could soon pay significant dividends. Granted, McCoy is considered a "game-time decision" due to his ankle injury, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, but the multiple Pro Bowler missed Wednesday's practice. After McCoy was knocked out Week 17, Murphy proceeded to split work with Mike Tolbert, both of whom received seven carries and two targets by the end of the game.
