Like his teammate Chaz Schilens, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Louis Murphy is also dealing with an injury. He missed practice for the eighth straight time Saturday with a sore hamstring.
Murphy said he is back running and expects to be back at practice soon. Oakland head coach Hue Jackson said Murphy is close to returning for the first time since Aug. 1.
"Yeah, it’s getting better," Murphy said. "We’ve just been taking it slow. You don’t want to reinjure it and make it into a longer situation."
