As you’ve most likely heard 47,000 times by now, rookie running back DeMarco Murray set a new franchise record for rushing yards in a single game last week against St. Louis, going for 253 on 25 carries. It was impressive. But where does the rookie go from here?
The question was posed on NFL.com recently, and though we already know that he will start against the Eagles on Sunday night, beyond that, the answer is pretty much up in the air. But whatever is next, Murray is cool with it. Just ask him.
“To be honest, I don’t know. Whatever it is, whatever Coach Garrett and Coach (Skip) Peete want me to do, I’m going to do,” Murray said, per NFL.com. “Whether it’s the second-, third- or first-string guy, I’m going to do it with a smile on my face and continue to help this team win regardless.”
Going into his first career start in the Philadelphia game, Murray has 49 carries on the year, for 324 yards and a touchdown. As you might imagine, these numbers are heavily influenced by the rookie’s outburst against the miserable Rams last Sunday.
