Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has not yet given running back DeMarco Murray the green light to play against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday after missing the past six games with a sprained foot.
Murray practiced on a limited basis for the first time on Wednesday. The Cowboys want to see how his foot responds in today's practice and then go from there.
But Garrett is no doubt looking forward to Murray's return to help the team's laughable running game that is last in the league and on pace to be worst in Cowboys history for 16 games.
"Murray brings something to our running game," Garrett said. "There is no question about that. The other guys have done a good job trying to take advantage of their opportunities. But DeMarco has given us that element the last couple of years when he is in there. We like to give him some opportunities. He is a good runner. He typically makes more than what's blocked and is able to run the ball inside and outside. He has been a good player for us."Clarence Hill Jr.
