Rookie Louis Murphy Very Impressive in NFL Debut

Rookie receiver Louis Murphy caught four balls for 87 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 24-20 loss to the Chargers.

Murphy was the only Oakland receiver to nab a catch on Monday, as he was the only legitimate threat they had on the outside. He had another would-be touchdown nullified on a ticky-tack call when he fell and maintained control but the ball happened to touch the ground. Murphy is light years ahead of fellow rookie Darrius Heyward-Bey developmentally.
