Latavius Murray returned to practice today for the Raiders. He was officially limited in practice but Tony Sparano said today that Murray has passed his concussion test and confirmed Murray has been cleared to play Sunday when the Raiders host the 49ers at O.co Coliseum.
The second-year back had four carries in the game for 112 yards and 2 touchdowns. It included a 90-yard run which was the fourth longest run from scrimmage in Raiders history. He received the concussion on a hit on a run that went six yards and it caused him to fumble the ball. It was recovered by the Raiders.
His increased play came on the heels of him having runs of 14 and 23 yards in his first two carries against the Chargers in the previous week. He is expected to receive an increased workload against the 49ers and perhaps even get the start.
In his last 8 carries, the former sixth round pick out of Central Florida has run for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns.
