Jacksonville Jaguars running back Richard Murphy has a complicated commute to training camp this week after someone stole his truck from outside of his house on Sunday. While 2010 Dodges can be replaced, he's most upset that his Louisiana State University rings were inside and likely lost forever.
Murphy earned the one of the rings playing in the backfield of LSU's 2006 Sugar Bowl-winning team and two more a year later when LSU won the Southeastern Conference Championship before winning the 2007 national title.
The Associated Press reports that police found his truck on concrete blocks several miles away. Thieves also stole rims valued at $15,000.
He told the AP, "“The rims, I can get them back, but the rings are something I worked for, something I take pride in at LSU. It’s a real hard feeling for me.”
While at LSU, Murphy played two games before a knee injury ended his 2009 season. After winning the national championship, he served as a backup running and played in every game running for 186 yards on 44 carries with 4.2 yards per carry, according to Nfldraftscout.com, a website that writes scouting reports.
Murphy one of nine active running backs on the Jaguars' roster, according to the Jaguars' website.
