DeMarco Murray has seen just 39 snaps and 19 carries over the past two games as the Philadelphia Eagles have reduced his role.

The Eagles were concerned all offseason how they would keep Murray fresh.

"Yes," Murray said with a smile on Thursday when asked if he was fresh, via CSN Philly. "Very fresh."

Murray signed a five-year, $40 million contract this past offseason that contains $21 million in guaranteed.

Murray is on pace for one of the worst seasons for a defending rushing champion.

Fewest Rush Yards in Season by Defending Rushing Champion Since 1970 (Min. 10 Games)

1988 LAN Charles White: 323 yards
2005 NYJ Curtis Martin: 735
2015 PHI DeMarco Murray: 754 <--- 2015 Pace (currently 603)
1986 LAA Marcus Allen: 759

Murray said he's fine with the reduced role.

"I was happy. I was fine," Murray said. "We got the win. It was a big win for us."
