Murray Excited To Get Fiammetta Back at FB

Whether he's coming off a 253-yard rushing day against the Rams to break the franchise record of Emmitt Smith, or he's returning from a 38-yard day against the Cardinals in defeat, DeMarco Murray doesn't change his tune that much.

The even-keeled rookie doesn't seem fazed by the highs or lows he's experienced so far and only focused on the upcoming matchup.

"I know I can't rush for a buck-50 (150 yards) every time," Murray said. "It's going to be tough to run in some games. I understand how it goes. But I just keep working and trying to get better and get ready for the next one."

Obviously, the next one is a big one with the Giants coming with first place in the NFC East on the line.

While Murray tried not to focus too much on the return of fullback Tony Fiammetta,  he at least acknowledges the improved running game when he's behind him.

"Tony does a great job and I'm looking forward to having him back this week," Murray said.

Of course he would. In four games behind Fiammetta, Murray rushed for 611 yards. In the last three games without him, it's been just 198 yards.

Fiammetta has been out with an illness caused by concussion-like symptoms. But he's been cleared for contact this week and has practiced all week long and is expected to start Sunday night against the Giants.
