DeMarco Murray Injury: Eagles running back leaves practice with hamstring issue

New, comments

As if the Eagles didn't have enough issues to deal with.

Just when you thought things couldn't get worse with the Philadelphia Eagles, running back DeMarco Murray left the team's practice early on Wednesday with a hamstring injury.

Murray, whom the Eagles signed to a five-year, $40 million contract earlier this offseason, has failed to produce through two games with his new team. After leading the NFL in rushing in 2014, Murray has only managed to gain 11 yards on 21 attempts with Philadelphia. To Murray's defense, the Eagles' offensive line struggles have not made life easy on him.

The extent of Murray's injury remains to be seen. If it causes him to sit out for the Eagles' game against the New York Jets this Sunday, expect Ryan Mathews to step up as the team's lead back. Philadelphia will also get Darren Sproles involved in the offense.

This team, man.
