The Raiders put rookie running back Latavius Murray on the injured reserve list. The team had said he had a minor ankle injury. Earlier in the offseason, it appeared as if Murray would have a chance to be Darren McFadden’s primary backup with a chance to be a major contributor. The sixth-round draft pick from Central Florida is big, fast and skilled.
Rashad Jennings will remain McFadden’s backup. Reportedly the team questioned Murray's attitude early this offseason so perhaps this is a message to get him back on track.
