Running back DeMarco Murray said his recovery from a broken ankle is going fine, and he believes in coach Jason Garrett.
Speaking to reporters Monday for the first time since his season-ending injury on Dec. 11, Murray said of his rehab, “I’m doing fine. I’m just going along with what we planned. It’s looking good.”
Murray led the Cowboys with 897 yards and was on track to break Tony Dorsett’s club record 1,007 rushing yards by a rookie.
“I was given an opportunity, and I think I played well for the most part,” he said. “There is a lot of work that still needs to be done.”
Asked about owner Jerry Jones’ vote of confidence for Garrett, Murray said, “I love Coach Garrett. He’s a great coach, a great motivator and a great offensive coordinator.”
