Eagles RB DeMarco Murray sidelined by hydration issue
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(8/4/15) Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was forced to miss the first day of team drills on Sunday because of poor hydration levels, coach Chip Kelly said per the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"We did a hydration status test and he was a little bit high and obviously when you see guys that are high from a hydration standpoint, then you kind of pull them back a little bit because that's when they are susceptible for an injury," Kelly said.
"He's probably the most conditioned athlete on our team, but if you don't drink the requisite amount of water and electrolytes and have them in your system, it doesn't matter how fit you are," Kelly said of Murray. "Especially the weather - that was a big factor for us, too. We have had back-to-back, and going into three, 90-degree days. . . .You don't want to lose a guy in the first day."

Eagles' Jason Peters wants offensive line to help DeMarco Murray
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/12/15) Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters knows there will be a ton of pressure on the team's offensive line to help newly acquired running back DeMarco Murray duplicate or surpass his incredible rushing numbers from last year.
Murray was last season's NFL Offensive Player of the Year after leading the league with 1,845 rushing yards. He did so as a Cowboy and behind one of the best offensive lines the NFL had last season, so Peters realizes all eyes will be on the Eagles line to help Murray continue his dominance.
"It's a big weight on our shoulders. He was the rushing champ last year. He almost broke the record. For him to come here and not duplicate that, that would discredit us a little bit with the Dallas offensive line. We've got to make sure he gets his yards," Peters said. "That's a big challenge. The Dallas offensive line is good. We're just better. We're going to make sure he gets his yards."
Eagles' Shurmur: RBs Murray, Mathews to 'share the role'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/3/15) Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur revealed on Wednesday that the team plans to divide the backfield touches between free-agent signees DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, the Delaware County Daily Times reports.
"They’re two really fine players," Shurmur said at a coaches availability. "They’re two guys that have been starters in places that they’ve been and they’re going to come here and kind of share the role. I think that’s terrific that that’s their mindset. It shows us that you’ve got really, really fine players that understand it’s important to be a good teammate. Any time you can add good players to a unit you make yourself better because you need more than one to play the year."
Murray signed a five-year, $40-million contract after a breakthrough season with the Cowboys in 2014. Mathews, a former first-round pick, signed a three-year, $11-million deal after being plagued by injuries in 2014.
"As time’s gone on I think at running back, I really believe it takes a village," Shurmur said. "If you play the season you need one, two, three and maybe four guys. They’re a key part of what we do offensively. So to have a group that we feel has improved here in the offseason, now it’s just a matter of getting them all up to speed as quickly as we can so they can master what we’re doing."
|DeMarco Murray had a breakout year in 2014 with the Cowboys, and he parlayed that into a five-year deal worth $42 million ($21 million guaranteed) with the Eagles. Now we get to find out how Murray does after his big season (more than 2,200 total yards and 13 touchdowns), especially going to a new team. The Eagles offense should allow Murray to still post dominant stats, but he's not going to be a solo act like we saw last season. The Eagles also signed Ryan Mathews this offseason and still have Darren Sproles, who will hurt Murray's reception totals. So the 497 total touches he had last season, including the playoffs, will come down, which could be a good thing to keep Murray healthy. But we're nervous about Murray, who has a lengthy injury history, dealing with the workload from 2014 and now sharing touches. He will likely get drafted like a No. 1 Fantasy running back in all leagues, but we consider him more of a No. 2 option and a bust candidate. Let him fall to you late in Round 2 or early in Round 3, or let someone else deal with the potential problems Murray will bring this year. His production will definitely come down this season.
