Latavius Murray rushed 13 times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 11 loss to the Lions.

Murray wasn't targeted in the passing game on a day where Derek Carr completed only 13 throws. Murray's score came after FB Marcel Reece was stuffed in comical fashion on two goal-line totes. Amazingly, Murray's 13 touches were his fewest of the season. He'll be on the RB1/2 borderline against the Titans' burnable run defense in Week 12.
Nov 22 - 4:58 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 12 times for 48 yards and caught all five of his targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

Murray couldn’t get much going Sunday against a game Vikings’ run defense. He was bottled up on nearly every run and saw his fewest carries since Week 1. Murray moved the chains with his five catches but was never able to break the big one. It’s possible he was tentative coming off his concussion. He should have a much easier time next week against the Lions.
Nov 15 - 9:02 PM

Latavius Murray is active for Week 10 against the Vikings.

He suffered a concussion against the Steelers in Week 9 but has been symptom free since Thursday. Murray was listed as probable on the injury report so his status was never in doubt. He's rushed for at least 85 yards in three straight games. Employ him as an RB2.
Nov 15 - 3:08 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against the Vikings.

Murray returned to a full practice on Friday and has been symptom free since at least Thursday. Murray ranks eighth in the NFL in rushing yards per game and should be in for another solid outing Sunday against the Vikes. He'll be an RB2 in that matchup.
Nov 15 - 9:53 AM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is probable for Week 10 against the Vikings after getting in a full practice Friday.

Murray declared himself "symptom free" Thursday, and ESPN's Adam Caplan reported he will play barring any setbacks. Murray faces a tough matchup against Linval Joseph and the Vikings, but he should see enough work to remain a solid RB2.
Nov 13 - 4:15 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Latavius Murray (concussion) is expected to play Week 10 against the Vikings.

Murray declared himself symptom free Thursday and practiced Friday. As long as he does not suffer a setback, he should be good to go. If Murray does sit, Caplan said to expect Roy Helu to see "a decent amount of work." Helu was a surprise inactive last week.
Nov 13 - 1:57 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) resumed practicing on Thursday.

It comes the same day Murray declared himself "symptom free." Although Murray will be listed as "limited" on the injury report, he's trending toward suiting up against the Vikings. Murray's workloads make him an every-week RB2, regardless of matchup.
Nov 12 - 5:10 PM

Latavius Murray said he is symptom free after suffering a concussion against the Steelers in Week 9.

"I can’t make a call on what their plans are, but I feel good and have been progressing great through the week," Murray said. He's been cleared for physical activity, and might return to practice Thursday. It's unclear if Murray will get the green light to play Sunday against Minnesota, but he's certainly headed in the right direction.
Nov 12 - 4:39 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Murray's in the concussion protocol, but coach Jack Del Rio expects him to play. It sounds like there's a decent chance he gets cleared. Murray's status will be updated on Thursday.
Nov 11 - 5:14 PM

Coach Jack Del Rio confirmed Latavius Murray is going through the league's concussion protocol.

Del Rio added that he expects Murray to "bounce back fine," though it'll be a task for him to pass all of the tests before Sunday's Week 10 tilt with the Vikings. It can be done, however. Consider Murray questionable for Sunday after he took a monster hit from Steelers S Mike Mitchell. Murray's last concussion happened last season when he missed one game.
Nov 9 - 6:19 PM

Latavius Murray was forced from Oakland's Week 9 game against the Steelers with a potential concussion.

Murray went limp after a huge hit from Steelers S Mike Mitchell, immediately fumbling the ball. It was a bizarre play because Mitchell's hit was not in the head/neck area, but Murray's reaction had all the hallmarks of a concussion. He was examined on the sideline before being walked to the locker room. His helmet has been taken away. With Roy Helu inactive, the Raiders are left with Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones at running back.
Nov 8 - 3:29 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 20 times for 113 yards Week 8 against the Jets.

He added one catch for six yards on two targets. Murray gashed the Jets’ formerly top-ranked rush defense for chunk gains all day. He made New York pay when they failed to set the edge on outside runs and had several long gains on inside cutback plays. Murray is once again the unquestioned workhorse in the Oakland backfield, and he will be a low-end RB1 even in a tough matchup against the Steelers next week.
Nov 1 - 7:22 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 85 yards and a touchdown and caught his lone target for one yard in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chargers.

Murray was benched in back-to-back games before the Raiders' Week 6 bye, but he returned as an every-down back against San Diego, and ripped off a number of chunk-yardage gains before Oakland took its pedal off the gas in the second half. When Murray is getting usage like this, he's going to be an every-week fantasy RB1. He does get a tough matchup next against the Jets.
Oct 25 - 8:01 PM

Latavius Murray (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 7.

Benched in back-to-back games before Oakland's Week 6 bye, Murray's struggles were attributed to the shoulder injury by coach Jack Del Rio. He should be back to 100 percent following the open date. Murray offers extreme upside as an RB2 play against San Diego's league-worst run defense.
