What is coming in 2013: Murphy has had a string of bad luck during his NFL career. But with the Redskins struggles at cornerback, his luck may be about to change. He could possibly make the Redskins roster as a depth defensive back. Murphy recorded 3 tackles in the week 1 preseason game against the Titans. In week 2, Murphy recorded 1 tackle and defended 2 passes. He almost intercepted a ball in the 4th quarter but it ended up being tipped off his hands for an incompletion. With an impressive showing in week 3 and 4 of the preseason, Murphy could make his way onto the roster. His chances are even better if DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson continue to have injury issues or struggle in the preseason. However, Chase Minnifield, David Amerson, Richard Crawford, and E.J. Biggers are more likely to be on the roster than Murphy, so he is more likely to be on the practice squad than the 53-man roster.
