Last week, second-year running back Latavius Murray burst onto the scene for the Raiders with 4 carries for 112 yards and 2 touchdowns. He would have gotten more carries but on his fourth carry, he was hit in the head and knocked out of the game with a concussion.

Murray wasn't at practice on Monday and received his baseline concussion test on Tuesday. That test went well because he was back on the practice field Wednesday according to media present at practice.

This is the first of many tests in the concussion protocol. He will need to pass tests each day, including one on game day to be fully cleared to play.

After the hit and the concussion diagnosis, Murray jogged into the locker room. He also had the long week to recover due to the team playing on Thursday which raised his chances of being ready to go for Sunday when the team travels to St Louis to face the Rams.
