Murray Suffers Concussion

Latavius Murray's breakout night against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night came to an unfortunate close, as the running back left the game with an apparent head injury in the first half.

The Oakland Raiders' official Twitter account has the report:

He was ruled out by the team in the third quarter: 

Will Carroll of Bleacher Report added:

Murray was brilliant in the first half for Oakland, rushing four times for 112 yards and two touchdowns, including an impressive 90-yard rushing score that saw him leave the Kansas City defenders in the dust. He appeared to have suffered the injury on a rush attempt up the middle in the second quarter, fumbling on the play (Oakland recovered the fumble). 

With Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew hardly impressing this season, Murray's performance on Thursday night seemed justification for giving him a look as the starter for the rest of the season. Now, the team will simply be hoping he didn't suffer a serious concussion and can return to action sooner rather than later.

For a team that is lacking playmakers, Murray's performance on Thursday night was exactly the boost the offense needed and will continue to need going forward.
