DeMarco Murray is fooling himself about this

DemarcomurrayIRVING, Texas - DeMarco Murray didn't bristle or change facial expressions, but he does not agree with the label a reporter used to help phrase a question:

"DeMarco, you're injury prone," the reporter said on Tuesday at Dallas Cowboys' OTAs.

You may as well call the guy a loser. Jocks normally hate being called injury prone.

"I wouldn't say I'm injury prone at all," said Murray, who is being held out of some of the Dallas Cowboys' OTAs because of a hamstring thingy. "I'm just trying to be smart about it."

He's not injury prone? Hmm ... what's a delicate way to say this? He is. Murray played in 13 games as a rookie in 2011 and in 10 games in 2012. That generally means he is injury prone.

I asked him if the tag bothers him.

"No, it doesn't bother me. I can't control that or anything that happens," Murray said.

As a freshman in '07, he missed OU's final three games.
In '08, he missed the final two games, including the national title game.
In '09, he appeared in every game but one.
In '10, he played in every game.

Murray is basically right on the line of injury prone. It's always something, and you're always holding your breath when he clears the pile it's not a toe, foot, ankle or knee.

He needs to play 15 or 16 games this season to prove he is indeed not injury prone.
