Raiders’ Latavius Murray had two surgeries last year

Raiders running back Latavius Murray underwent two surgeries last year.

He played in just one preseason game before bowing to an ankle injury that required surgery. He rehabbed a while before realizing the joint still felt off. He had a second surgery in December to “tighten things up,” and only felt normal again in May.

“It was a long road back,” Murray said last week. “I’m so happy to be playing like myself again.”

Murray was taken in the sixth round of the 2013 draft.
