Cowboys are not counting on having DeMarco Murray this week

The Cowboys are not ready to count on DeMarco Murray against Cleveland, a team source said. He’ll get a chance to prove himself in practice this week, but the Cowboys again insisted they want him to be 100 percent, and not just close, before he plays.

“There are a lot of different thresholds that he has to get over,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s certainly making progress. ... We’ll see how he is the next couple of days. Hopefully he’ll do something on Wednesday.”

Murray has missed four games since being hurt in the first half against Carolina. He is still the Cowboys’ leading rusher with 330 yards.

In the four games Murray has missed, the Cowboys have rushed 91 times for 270 yards. That works out to an average of 3.0 yards per carry and 67.5 yards per game.

Comments

This is the second straight season that Murray is absent. If he cannot do it then draft another more durbale RB. The team needs both Murray & one of the stronger Centres i.e Costa or Kowalski to return if it has any shot at all at the playorffs.
