For the third consecutive day, the Dallas Cowboys practiced and their injured running back, DeMarco Murray, joined them. Murray had surgery on Monday for a broken bone in his hand, but has remarkably attended every practice this week starting on Wednesday. That first day, he did very little, so little in fact that he was officially designated as having not participated. On Thursday, he got a little more done and moved over to limited participation. We'll have to wait and see how much he does today. As per usual, Jason Garrett was very non-committal on Murray's status, only offering the standard - "he may do more today than yesterday, we'll have to see where he is at each day". The Cowboys will likely not make a decision until they have to, which could be right up to game time on Sunday.
The really bad news for the Cowboys as far as injuries go is the continued absence of Doug Free and Zack Martin. The Dallas Morning News reported that either offensive lineman showed up for practice today, leaving their participation for Sunday in serious doubt. The right side of the Cowboys line on Sunday could be Mackenzy Bernadeau and Jeremy Parnell. That's not the ideal scenario for a team that needs victories to get to the playoffs.
Josh Brent and Dekoda Watson didn't practice today so it's safe to assume they will miss the game on Sunday. Brandon Weeden missed practice attending to a personal issue.
