Trent Murphy switching positions and putting on weight

Trent Murphy spent the offseason working diligently in Scottsdale, Arizona, working with trainer Ian Danney as he packed on weight to transition from outside linebacker to defensive end in the Redskins’ defense.

When Murphy returned to organized team activities in the spring he was noticeably bigger and listed on the roster at 290 pounds, a 32-pound gain from last season when he was listed as 258. With the expected return of outside linebacker Junior Galette, the Redskins were comfortable having Murphy make that switch.

“Once Junior tore his Achilles, we tried [Murphy] at defensive end a little bit, but we feel like at this point in time, we moved him back to linebacker,” Gruden said. “The good thing about him, he got some experience at defensive end. So, you know, on game day, if you dress five defensive linemen, four outside backers, he can also be an extra defensive lineman. Or, three outside linebackers, count him as a defensive end, he can be an outside linebacker. His value will be big because he can play both.”

Return to Sport

• To return from an injury requires time and help.  The body is capable of healing on its own, but the level and speed of healing can be greatly influenced by correct biomechanics, specific exercise, manual therapy, nutrition and supplementation (and various injections). There is clearly a middle ground between rehab and performance training that is grossly neglected.
