2022 Fantasy Outlook
Murray's put together a pair of good seasons in Houston, with the team reworking the safety's contract during the offseason, giving him a two-year extension. That came after a roller coaster ride in 2021. Murray opened the year as a starter but was replaced by Lonnie Johnson in Week 4, as defensive coordinator (now head coach) Lovie Smith looked for the right combination in the secondary. Murray reclaimed the job Week 9 and helped solidify the back end, playing with Justin Reid. He finished out the season with 55 tackles, four passes defensed and one interception over his final eight games. Murray had offseason shoulder surgery but is slated to be ready for training camp.

Murray underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason, Aaron Wilson of SportsTalk 790 AM reports.
ANALYSIS
The surgery slipped through the news cracks during the offseason but came to light this week when Murray did not practice as Houston began its OTAs. "We don't have many guys that are out completely. Jonathan Greenard and a few of our other players, Eric Murray, you see some of the guys had offseason surgeries and you probably won't see them until training camp, but everybody's right on schedule being able to do something," head coach Lovie Smith said. Murray is expected to be ready for training camp and is set to resume his role as a starting safety.
