Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 7 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 29 / 0 rec)

Murphy caught his first target of the day on a deep crossing route for a 29 yard gain, but he injured his right knee going down and left the game. Contact was minimal on the tackle. MRI results revealed that Murphy has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

2015 Week 5 vs JAX (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Murphy saw snaps as the slot receiver, but the success of the run game limited all Tampa Bay's receivers on the day. Murphy was just an afterthought who did not receive any targets.

2015 Week 4 vs CAR (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

Murphy hauled in 3 of 4 targets for 26 yards. His first catch of the day was a deep out route from the slot position that Murphy secured over a DB in the second quarter for an 9 yard gain. Murphy's longest catch was an 11 yard gain midway through the 4th quarter, helping Tampa Bay convert a 3rd and 9 on the drive that was eventually snuffed out by Winston's fourth interception.

2015 Week 3 vs HOU (6 / 3 / 61 / 0 rec)

Murphy reeled in Tampa Bay's longest reception(33 yards) for the second week in a row on a deep post at the start of the 4th quarter. Murphy made a great leaping catch on a contested ball over a Texans defensive back. Later in the same drive Murphy hauled in a deep comeback for another nice gain, setting the Bucs up in field goal range. Unfortunately, kicker Brinza missed one of his 3 field goals of the day to cap the drive. Murphy caught a total of 3 of 6 targets for 61 yards on the day. Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson got the start as the Bucs ran primarily 2WR sets with extra tight ends to help with blocking, but Murphy was the third receiver when the Bucs went 3 wide in third down situations.

2015 Week 2 vs NO (4 / 3 / 82 / 0 rec)

Murphy led Tampa Bay in receiving, hauling in the majority of his yards on a deep route in the third quarter. Murphy began the play running a different route, but took off deep after Jameis scrambled to extend the play. The young QB showed impressive arm strength and launched the ball on the run for the big completion. Murphy bounced back from a hard hit he took during the team's third offensive drive of the game. Murphy got cleaned up trying to haul in a high pass from Winston on a crossing route. He was down for a little while, presumably winded, but returned to the game and recorded all three of his receptions after the hit. Murphy also drew a pass interference call in the third quarter that set the Bucs up on the Saints' 1 yard line.

2015 Week 1 vs TEN (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Murphy was targeted once in the first quarter on a pass that was wildly overthrown by Jameis Winston. It's pretty safe to say that Vincent Jackson is the only Bucs receiver worth consideration until Mike Evans returns.
