Cowboys not at all confident DeMarco Murray is coming back for the next game

Even with an extra three days before the next game, the Cowboys aren’t sure if running back DeMarco Murray will come back for the Philadelphia game.

“We can’t get a prognosis that another week’s rest will do anything,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Washington Redskins. “It’s all depending on how he pushes off.”

Murray has been out since the Carolina game, having missed six games now since suffering a sprained foot. The Cowboys have never given a timetable for his return, but this week, coach Jason Garrett finally referred to “slow progress” in the recovery.

“I think it will help, but I don’t know what we’re going to have him,” Jones said. “We got 10 more days, and he hadn’t been on it.”

Murray was the Cowboys’ leading rusher when he got hurt. Since then, the Cowboys have rushed for 85, 19, 65, 101, 63 and 35 yards.
