Murray waiting for more chances in Eagles' offense
LANDOVER, Md. — DeMarco Murray did not mince words about his lack of touches in his first season with the Eagles.
Murray gained 36 yards on eight carries in Philadelphia's 23-20 loss Sunday at Washington. That gives Murray 47 yards on 29 carries in three games since joining the Eagles as a free agent after leading the NFL in rushing last season with the Cowboys.
Asked if he's getting the ball enough, Murray replied: "No, I'm not. I don't think I am. But it's how the plays are being called. I love this offense, I love playing with these guys. It's just how it is."
Lynch out: Seahawks All-Pro RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) will miss tonight's game against the Lions, as will DT Brandon Mebane (groin). Lynch was hurt late in the first half of Seattle's 26-0 win over Chicago last week. This will be just the second game Lynch has missed since joining the Seahawks in 2010 and the first since the 2011 season.
Bears: C Will Montgomery left with a broken leg on the opening possession. Matt Slauson then moved from left guard to center.
Broncos: Peyton Manning has led his teams to a 4-0 start seven times, extending his record for most in NFL history. Fran Tarkenton is next with four.
Browns: WR Dwayne Bowe dropped the only pass thrown to him. He has sat out two games with a hamstring injury and has yet to catch a pass after the team signed him to a two-year, $12.5 free agent contract, with $9 million guaranteed.
Chiefs: CB Sean Smith returned from a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy and had a tough time covering Bengals WR A.J. Green, who had six catches for 78 yards in the first half.
Cowboys: LB Sean Lee (concussion) left late Sunday's game against the Saints.
Jaguars: MLB Paul Posluszny (sprained ankle), CB Aaron Colvin (shoulder) and S James Sample (shoulder) left injured.
Raiders: K Sebastian Janikowski matched Hall of Fame WR Tim Brown's club record by playing in his 240th game.
Rams: Coach Jeff Fisher said ILB Alec Ogletree broke an ankle in the first half and will require surgery.
Numbers of the day
15 AFC South victories in a row for the Colts, tying the league record for consecutive division wins held by the 1972-73 Dolphins. The Colts can break the record Thursday at Houston.
