DeMarco Murray injury: Eagles running back will reportedly play versus Jets

New, comments

Some positive news for the Eagles.

Philadelphia Eagles starting running back DeMarco Murray is still expected to play on Sunday despite suffering a hamstring injury in practice this week, according to a report from ESPN's Ashley Fox.

Murray first suffered the injury during Wednesday's practice. He left the training session early and sat out of Thursday's practice. Chip Kelly confirmed Murray only suffered a "hamstring tweak" so there was never any indication it was a serious injury.

With Murray reportedly likely to play, he figures to be the team's centerpiece on offense. If he's not fully 100%, however, maybe the Eagles will look to get Ryan Mathews more involved.

Murray has struggled with the Eagles through his first two games. The 2014 NFL leading rusher has only managed to gain a paltry 11 yards on 21 attempts.

The Eagles play the New York Jets at 1:00 PM ET on Sunday, Sept. 27.
