As expected. Murray was listed as questionable after putting in a limited week of practice, but his status for Sunday was never in jeopardy.

His touchdown came from four yards out on Sunday after a 30-yard Johnny Holton catch. Murray will be a fine RB2 play next week against the Bills.
Nov 27 - 8:06 PM

Latavius Murray (ankle) is active for Week 12 against the Panthers.

Latavius Murray rushed 12 times for 33 yards and caught 5-of-5 targets for 59 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 win over the Texans.

Murray entered the game questionable with an ankle issue. He was really struggling to get anything going, especially on the ground as the Raiders rushed for just 30 yards on 20 carries as a team. But Murray was able to help fantasy owners out with a strong night as a pass catcher. It had to be infuriating for Murray owners to see Jalen Richard catch a 17-yard touchdown, Jamize Olawale be in on a couple plays from the one-yard line, and then see Olawale catch a 75-yard touchdown, but that's how this backfield has been much of the season. OC Bill Musgrave just cycles these guys through the lineup. Murray will be a back-end RB2 in a home game with the Raiders in Week 12.
