Latavius Murray sits much of second half

San Francisco Chronicle - [Full Article]

Raiders RB Latavius Murray took his first carry Sunday and bulled up the middle for 11 yards. It was all downhill from there.

His next 10 carries of the first half went for 21 yards. Then the Raiders’ No. 1 running back carried twice for 7 yards early in the third quarter. And that was it. Murray didn’t play again, watching on the sideline of a close game for the second Sunday in a row.

Fullback Jamize Olawale and backup running back Roy Helu combined for 9 yards on five carries in the second half.

Fantasy Impact: 

HC Jack Del Rio said Murray was a little banged up, saying his shoulder was bugging him. However he added that the back was "available" which opens the possibility it was again a coach's decision that Murray was on the bench.
