Tony Sparano believes Latavius Murray can become a featured running back for the Oakland Raiders.

"Early in the season, it took us a while to figure that part of it out," Sparano said, per CSN Bay Area. "He's a guy that was hurt all year last year. Latavius has really come into his own, and I think he can handle the workload of being a No. 1 guy."

Over his last four games played -- including the 112-yard outburst against the Kansas City Chiefs -- Murray has averaged 83.3 yards per game, 5.4 yards per carry, with eight runs of 10-plus yards and two touchdowns.
