RB DeMarco Murray could make his preseason debut Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Murray was expected to be a go in each of the past two weeks from a nagging hamstring injury. He practiced last week in joint work with the Carolina Panthers but was held out last week after coach Mike Mularkey said he wanted to see a “bigger burst” from Murray in his running. Murray returned to practice, getting good reviews this week in practice from Mularkey and appeared to be a go Sunday against the Bears. But Mularkey indicated after Friday’s practice that he needed to watch the practice film before green-lighting his star.
S Da’Norris Searcy was excused from practice for two days, but should play this Sunday against the Bears.
