DeMarco Murray insists he can handle the load

DeMarco Murray insists he’s fine with whatever. If they want to give him 37 touches every game, great. If they want to play Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar more, so be it.

“I think they know what’s best for the team,” Murray said Friday. “It’s hard during a game to come out, but those are two good guys that we trust, and we know what they can do. Whatever they feel is necessary to help us win.”

Murray has played 80.5 percent of the team’s offensive snaps, on the field for 280 of 348 plays. He has 130 carries, putting him on pace to tie Larry Johnson’s NFL single-season record of 416. Murray also has 15 receptions this season.

Murray, in his fourth season, had a career-best 217 carries last season.

“Whatever they ask me to do -- running catching, blocking -- I look forward to it,” Murray said.
