Murray says he got full benefit of training camp, unlike the 'blah blah blah blah' of his rookie year

Running back DeMarco Murray said his doubts about the broken ankle he suffered last year went away in the OTAs. So when training camp came around, he was ready to get the full benefit, unlike last year when he missed almost all of it as a rookie because of a hamstring injury.

“Last year I was behind the 8-ball starting out, without being able to get the physical reps,” he said. “It was definitely hard for me to pop in and then everything’s going so fast, I’d hear the calls in the meeting room, I’m picking it up, picking it up and once I finally get out there, it’s like ‘blah blah blah blah blah,’ and I’m like, ‘Man.’ ”

He smiled, talking to reporters about the memory.

“So it definitely helped me out a lot, just getting the physical reps and being able to go back and watch film and being able to correct my bad plays that I had.”

Murray rushed for 897 yards last year before suffering a broken ankle in a game against the Giants. Without him, the Cowboys eventually finished out of the playoffs. He didn’t play in the second game against the Giants, the season finale.

So. Want revenge, DeMarco?

A quick laugh.

“Nah,” he said. “I don’t. I approach them just like any other game. Week 1. Giants vs. Cowboys. Huge game. Going to be a good atmosphere. But like I said, no animosity towards them. It happened. Just going to go out there and play my game.”
