Latavius Murray doesn’t practice for Week 9, likely out with ankle injury

We break down the news that Latavius Murray did not practice for Week 9 with an ankle injury.

Friday update: Murray didn’t practice Friday and is likely out, per Jeff Zrebiec.

Thursday update: Murray once again missed practice on Thursday with his nagging ankle injury. This is obviously not a good sign for his prospects for playing on Sunday.

Baltimore Ravens running back Latavius Murray did not practice Wednesday as the Ravens prepare to play the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, per Jamison Hensley. The veteran running back is still dealing with an ankle injury that has kept him off the field.

Fantasy football implications

The veteran running back did not play in the Ravens’ last game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7 before their bye last week. Out of all the running backs that Baltimore signed this season, Murray has been the most consistent and productive. This season, he has 212 yards on 59 carries and four touchdowns. In his last game before getting injured, Murray had 44 yards on nine carries and a touchdown (13.6 fantasy points) against the Los Angeles Chargers.

If Murray does not practice tomorrow, then we should expect to see Devonta Freeman as the Ravens’ starting running back and possibly promoting Ty’Son Williams from the practice squad.
