Latavius Murray has ankle scoped, could miss time in regular season

Thearon W. Henderson

Dennis Allen revealed today that Raiders rookie running back, Latavius Murray, had an arthroscopic procedure done on his injured ankle this week. This could have Murray missing some of the regular season as he recovers.

"Latavius Murray had his ankle scoped the other day so we'll find out where we go from here on him." said Allen.

Murray missed some time early in camp but returned the week of the team's preseason opener versus the Cowboys. In that game, he carried the ball 8 times for 29 yards (3.6 ypc). However, the next practice, he was out with an injury. He hasn't been back since.

The typical recovery time for arthroscopic surgery is 2-4 weeks. With 19 days until the start of the regular season, there is a chance Murray could miss the first two games of the season against the Colts and Jaguars.

The team should be able to live without him in the lineup with Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings as the top two backs on the roster. I wouldn't expect the team to keep an extra running back to compensate for Murray's absence.
