Draft Scout Latavius Murray News
11/28/14 - RB Latavius Murray will not play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams because he did not pass the league's concussion protocol, coach Tony Sparano said.
Murray was the catalyst for the Raiders' first victory of the season, rushing for two touchdowns in a 24-20 win over the Kansas City Chiefs last Thursday.
Murray ran for a career-high 112 yards on four attempts, scoring from 11 and 90 yards, but he suffered a concussion.
He took part in individual drills Wednesday but was ruled out Friday, for now scuttling Sparano's stated plans to get Murray more work in the backfield in the final month.
The second-year running back had played mostly on special teams until last week as veterans Darren McFadden and Maurice-Jones Drew received most of the carries out of the backfield.
11/27/14 - RB Latavius Murray was limited in practice with a concussion and still has to pass another test to be cleared to face St. Louis.
11/26/14 - RB Latavius Murray, who is going through the NFL concussion protocol, is uncertain for Sunday's game.
However, he is heartened by the outpouring of fan support in the wake of his 112-yard effort on four carries against the Chiefs.
Murray left the game after a head-on collision with Kurt Coleman, with Stefen Wisniewski jumping on the fumble that resulted.
"It's a great feeling for people to want to see you out there and obviously I've always wanted to be out there and play and get the ball in my hands," Murray said. "I've always said I'd be ready to go when my number is called. I still have room for improvement - the ball was on the ground out there, and I've got to clean that up."
Murray, who scored on runs of 11 and 90 yards, said teammates seemed surprised that he had that type of speed at 6-feet-3, 225 pounds.
"I know the speed I have. I think I might confuse a lot of people, me being so tall, they may not know I have that kind of speed," Murray said. "I think Charles (Woodson) said the same thing. But I know what I'm capable of and it was nice to pull off a big one like that."
Having his first big success end after four carries was not easy.
"It definitely killed me," Murray said. "I wanted to be back out there ... when they want me back out there, I will be."
11/26/14 - RB Latavius Murray has another test to take before being cleared to play after sustaining a concussion against Kansas City.
11/21/14 - RB Latavius Murray will be subject to the NFL concussion protocol before being cleared to play, with the Raiders facing the St. Louis Rams Nov. 30.
