DeMarco Murray Injury: Cowboys RB Likely To Play, Says Jerry Jones

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Finally, DeMarco Murray looks like he'll play again.

Running back DeMarco Murray is ready to return to the field on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles according to Jerry Jones. The team and coaches have yet to make an official statement on Murray's availability, but he has been a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Murray has been out since injuring his ankle in an Oct. 14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Felix Jones is dealing with a knee injury this week, and although he's played through the injuries the past few weeks, Dallas could really use a healthy Murray. As noted previously, the Cowboys have struggled to rush the ball all year, particularly with Murray out of the lineup. They rank dead last with only 78.7 rushing yards per game.

DeMarco just might be able to revive a dormant rushing attack and provide the offense with a weapon, in both the run and pass game. Not only can Murray do work while receiving the ball, his presence will force defenses to respect the run, hopefully opening things up on play-action passes.
