DeMarco Murray participates fully at Eagles' practice

DeMarco Murray was back at practice Thursday, but wouldn't commit to playing Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles running back was listed as a full participant Thursday after being limited on Wednesday.

Murray missed last week's win over the New York Jets while dealing with a hamstring injury.

The back said he felt better Thursday than the previous couple of days, but was coy about his status for Sunday's contest against the Redskins, per NFL Media's Albert Breer. Murray added that he missed last week's game because his hamstring just "wasn't right" the morning of the game.

Without Murray, Ryan Mathews carried the ground load last week, garnering 24 attempts and 108 yards rushing. Mathews put up the best rushing performance of the Eagles' season and should garner a larger share than the four combined carries he saw the first two weeks, regardless of Murray's status.

Murray's availability will be something to track as we inch closer to Sunday's scheduled 1 p.m. ET kickoff from FedEx Field. The NFL is also monitoring Hurricane Joaquin, which could cause the league to adjust the schedule.
