DeMarco Murray served up some Thanksgiving lunch at the Salvation Army on Tuesday.
But he dished nothing about when he’s going to play again.
“We’ll see. We’ll see,” he said. “I’ll be back out there before you know it.”
The Cowboys running back has been sidelined by a sprained foot since the second half of the Baltimore game last month. He has missed the last four games since and hasn't practiced since Oct. 12. He was out on the practice field doing rehab last week.
“I’m just doing what they tell me. We have a great medical staff there. They know what’s best for me,” he said. “I’m dying to get out there. I’m dying to get out there. But at the same time, you’ve got to think about what’s best for the team, what’s best for yourself. I’m just trying to stay patient, trying to stay mentally ready.”
Murray was one of 12 Cowboys players who served lunch to the clients at the Salvation Army’s Collins Social Services Center in Dallas. It’s part of the kickoff to the Cowboys’ annual Thanksgiving holiday drive for the Salvation Army.
Murray was told he looked pretty good cutting in and around the tables with the trays of food.
“Yeah, hopefully,” he said with a laugh. “I was. I was moving pretty good with the trays.”
Murray said it lifted his spirits to do his part in the charity effort.
“Getting away from everything that deals with football, enjoying life, giving back, being around people who really don’t see football, it was nice to come out here and give,” he said. “Things like this definitely make you forget what your personal problems are or anything about football.”
