Friday PM update: Latavius Murray is officially out for Week 7 against the Bengals. The Ravens will likely have Devonta Freeman, Le’Veon Bell and Ty’Son Williams active for this matchup.

Friday update: Latavius Murray was once again not at practice on Friday, per Jonas Shaffer. He will likely be considered out on the final injury report later this afternoon.

Thursday update: Murray wasn’t at practice yet again with his ankle injury, per Jonas Shaffer. He’ll need to get some practice in on Friday for a chance to play against the Bengals on Sunday.

Baltimore Ravens running back Latavius Murray was unable to practice on Wednesday, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. Murray sprained his ankle in Week 6 against the Chargers and is considered “day-to-day” by head coach John Harbaugh.

Ravens running backs have been cursed this season and if Murray can’t go, they’d be down to Devonta Freeman, Le’Veon Bell and Ty’Son Williams, who was a healthy scratch last week.

Fantasy football implications

Freeman was the lead back after Murray went down last week and would likely lead the way against what has been a good Cincinnati run defense this season. Freeman wouldn’t be a workhorse back though, as Bell and Williams would likely see work as well.

This is a tough bye week, so Freeman has some appeal on a team that can run the ball well, even in a tougher matchup. We can’t expect big numbers, but I’d be willing to throw him out there if Murray can’t go.
