Eagles’ Murray questionable with hamstring injury


The Sports Xchange

Running back DeMarco Murray of the Philadelphia Eagles sustained a hamstring injury in practice on Wednesday and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

The severity of the injury isn’t known, but the Eagles said Murray was limited in practice and sent him for an MRI exam afterward.

Murray, who won the NFL rushing title last season with the Dallas Cowboys, has rushed for only 11 yards on 21 carries in the first two games.

If Murray can’t play, Ryan Mathews, another offseason acquisition with a similar downhill running style to Murray’s, probably would get the bulk of the carries, and Darren Sproles also would probably see playing time.

Mathews has only four carries for four yards in two games.
