Despite being listed as questionable, Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is expected to play today vs. Washington, per league source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 4, 2015
Eagles RB DeMarco Murray likely to return to the lineup today, per sources. Will give his hamstring a final test pregame.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 4, 2015
As noted, Murray was listed as "questionable" to play in the Eagles' Week 4 matchup due to a hamstring injury. Murray missed Philadelphia's Week 3 game after suffering the injury in practice last week.
Murray's tenure with the Eagles has hardly gotten off to a good start. The 2014 NFL leading rusher has managed to gain a mere 12 yards on 21 total rushing attempts. Murray has dealt with bad blocking, but Eagles backup running back Ryan Mathews played behind the same offensive line and gained 108 yards on 24 carries (4.5 yards per attempt) against the New York Jets.
It will be interesting to see how Murray fares in his return to action. Washington's run defense ranks as the fifth best unit overall as ranked by Football Outsiders. It will be a tough challenge for him and Philadelphia's shaky offensive line.
