Signs two-year deal
FAdelaide Crows
June 10, 2021
Murphy (ankle) signed a two-year contract extension with Adelaide on Wednesday.
Murphy remains sidelined after having surgery to repair an ankle syndesmosis injury in May. The forward is now set to remain with the club through 2023, although his performance hasn't developed into a particularly useful form for fantasy.

Set for surgery
FAdelaide Crows
May 11, 2021
Murphy is set to undergo surgery for an ankle syndesmosis injury, according to the Crows' Head of Football Adam Kelly. "(Murphy's) a really important part of our team and had been enjoying a really good season. He's having surgery on that ankle today and we expect he will be unavailable for 8-10 weeks."
Murphy isn't nearly as important for fantasy as he is for his club's performances, as he's scored no more than 67 fantasy points in a single match through eight rounds. With a recovery time that will take at least two months, it could be worth monitoring who replaces him over the coming weeks.
Exits with ankle injury
FAdelaide Crows
May 8, 2021
Murphy was forced out of Saturday's matchup with the Power due to an ankle injury.
Murphy suffered the injury during the game's first quarter. It is unclear how serious the issue is, so he will have to be considered day-to-day going forward.
Clear of suspension
FAdelaide Crows
August 12, 2020
Murphy served his one-match suspension Tuesday and should be back in the mix for Sunday's match versus the Bulldogs.
Murphy's one-match ban came as a result of his engaging with rough conduct charge versus Jack Viney in the third quarter of the previous round's match versus Melbourne. He had played in the majority of matches prior, so it seems likely Murphy will be back in action this round.
Suspended for Tuesday's match
FAdelaide Crows
August 10, 2020
Murphy (suspension) will not play in Tuesday's match against Collingwood.
At this time there is no reason given for the suspension. The Crows will need to replace his presence at the forward position Tuesday. We will see if he is able to return for Round 12 on Saturday.
Scores three in loss
FAdelaide Crows
July 26, 2020
Murphy scored three goals and collected 16 disposals (10 kicks, six handballs) during Sunday's 62-59 loss to Essendon.
Murphy scored for the first time since Round 1, and given that it took until Round 8 for him to log double-digit disposals, further production seems unlikely to be a consistent event.
