DeMarco Murray said he is 100 percent and feels no apprehension about the fractured ankle that ended his season in Game 13 against the New York Giants. Murray needed surgery to repair the ankle.
“I have been doing everything in the past month and a half 100 percent,” he said Wednesday. “No limitations. I’m feeling good out there.”
Jason Garrett said Murray has missed none of the football work in the offseason, and running backs coach Skip Peete said Murray is looking like himself again.
"Typically you heal from that," Peete said. "Just the stress of planting and cutting on that, you want to see if they’re back completely from that injury. It seems like he’s obviously rehabbed, and he’s healed, and he’s 100 percent right now. He doesn’t look any slower or more sluggish than he would normally."
Murray said the rehab phase – strengthening his calf, ankle and quadriceps – is over.
“I’m finally done with all of that. It felt good to get back in the huddle with the guys and play some football,” he said.
Asked if he thinks about how he could have finished last year without the injury, Murray said, "You always have would-have, could-have and should-haves and all that stuff, but I am just one guy. Felix (Jones) is a great running back and he did good the last couple games I was out. You definitely want all of your pieces in when you’re playing top teams. And unfortunately I wasn’t there. But they did good."
