Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray has been officially listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets. 

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that Murray's hamstring did not respond well this morning. He injured the hamstring in practice on Wednesday, but had been expected to play Sunday. 

The Eagles will turn to Ryan Mathews to handle the bulk of the carries in Murray's absence. Mathews has carried the ball just four times through the first two games.

Veteran Darren Sproles should also get some carries, and is second on the team in receiving yardage (99).

Murray has struggled since joining the Eagles as a free agent this offseason. He is averaging less than a yard per attempt, rushing for 11 yards on 21 carries. 

Murray earned All-Pro honors with the Dallas Cowboys last season, rushing for 1845 yards and 13 touchdowns. 

Jets’ Geno Smith practices in full, could be activated vs. Eagles
