Bills' Marcus Murphy: Dislocates elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy dislocated his elbow during Sunday's 14-13 win over the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Prior to being forced out of Sunday's game, Murphy logged 11 carries for 35 yards. Once he was hurt, the Bills were forced to turn their backfield duties over to Keith Ford (14 carries for 46 yards and one catch for seven yards), with LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) both inactive. With Murphy's Week 16 status now unclear, look for the Bills to add running back depth in short order.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Suffers arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was forced out of Sunday's game against the Lions with an arm injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

With Murphy injured and both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) inactive, Keith Ford is the last man standing among the Bills' running backs Sunday.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Steps into larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is listed as the projected starter in the Buffalo backfield Sunday against Detroit, as both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) are inactive for the contest.

Murphy saw a season-best 40 offensive snaps Week 14 against the Jets, but ended up with just five touches for 18 total yards from scrimmage. He'll get another chance against Detroit -- a run defense that has been boosted by the midseason acquisition of "Snacks" Harrison, but is one of 12 teams allowing 20 or more average fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in standard formats on the year. Backing up Murphy in the Buffalo backfield will be Keith Ford, with Isaiah McKenzie representing a wild card option to receive carries.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: May act as lead back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy could serve as the Bills' top option out of the backfield Sunday against the Lions with both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) listed as questionable and both at risk of missing the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Citing a source, Schefter relays that McCoy isn't expected to play, while Ivory's fate won't be decided until he completes a pregame warmup. Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network -- also citing sources -- characterizes McCoy as more of a game-time decision, while Ivory isn't expected to play. Official word on the statuses of both hurting backs should come with the release of the Bills' inactive list at 11:30 a.m. EST, but Murphy would be next in line for work if both players are out and/or limited. In that scenario, Murphy could see enough touches to make for a decent speculative lineup option in deeper leagues or as a punt play in DFS tournaments, though the Bills' inclination to incorporate quarterback Josh Allen and speedy wideout Isaiah McKenzie in the run game would naturally lower Murphy's ceiling. Fellow back Keith Ford, who was promoted from the practice squad earlier this week, could also have a role on offense if McCoy and Ivory are unavailable.

Bills' Marcus Murphy: Could see spike in role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy rushed four times for 10 yards while catching his lone target for eight more in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets.

Murphy didn't do much with his opportunities after both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) exited due to their respective injuries. In fact, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie was more productive as a rusher than Murphy, turning four carries into 22 yards and a touchdown. Should McCoy and Ivory sit out in Week 15, Murphy would become Buffalo's primary rushing option against the Lions.
