Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray doesn't seem to be seriously injured, despite leaving the team's practice early on Wednesday afternoon. According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Murray only tweaked his hamstring.

Murray underwent an MRI on his hamstring following the injury. The running back was officially listed as a limited participant on the Eagles' injury report.
Though a hamstring tweak isn't usually considered too serious, it remains to be seen if Murray will be healthy enough to play this week. The Eagles are scheduled to play the New York Jets. If Murray can't play, the Eagles will likely use Ryan Mathews as their lead back while also getting Darren Sproles some touches. Fourth string running back Kenjon Barner might also be in the mix.
Murray's performance with the Eagles through two games has obviously been disappointing. The former Dallas Cowboys rusher has managed to gain a mere 11 yards on 21 attempts.
