    We knew DeMarco Murray might be a little frustrated with his role in Philadelphia after he was on the field for just 14 snaps in the Eagles’ 35-28 victory over the Patriots on Sunday, but we didn’t know he was this frustrated.

    According to ESPN, Murray went so far as to meet with Eagles’ owner Jeffrey Lurie following that game to discuss his issues with head coach Chip Kelly's offense.

    A source close to Murray told ESPN last year’s AP Offensive Player of the Year "is obviously upset about what happened."

    In the win over the Patriots, Murray had 24 yards on eight carries. Kenjon Barner had 39 on nine carries, and Darren Proles led the way with 66 yards on 15 carries.

    Kelly brushed off a question about Murray’s workload off after the victory in New England, saying the game plan will determine who gets the carries on a week to week basis, whether that means Murray, Sproles, Barner or whoever else.

    "Our game plan each week depends on who we're playing, what we're doing and who is available," Kelly said. "Each week we look at who is available and we put a game plan together against the team we are playing. So I don't know how much more plainly I can say that to you."
