DeMarco Murray sits out of practice - [Full Article]

Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was a virtual non-participant on Day 1 of training camp Sunday at the NovaCare Complex.

Among the Eagles' prized offseason additions, last season's rushing champion stretched with his teammates and took part in individual drills at the start of Sunday's practice but was limited to the role of a sideline spectator the rest of the day.

Murray did not take a single snap in seven-on-seven drills and was absent from every rep in full-team 11-on-11 drills as well.

Darren Sproles took a vast majority of the snaps with the first-team offense and Ryan Mathews also saw a signifcant workload on Sunday afternoon.

"Who knows with him," An Eagles team source who requested anonymity said of Murray's conspicuous absence.

An Eagles team spokesman told NJ Advance Media that he was unaware of any injury to the running back.

Murray did fulfill his lone media obligation of the day -- a one-on-one interview with a national media outlet -- but did not speak to reporters. He is scheduled to talk at the podium after Monday's practice.
