Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray leaves early with sprained foot
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was on his way to a huge fantasy day until an injury cut his Sunday effort short. After rushing for 93 yards on 14 carries versus the Ravens, Murray hardly played in the second half because of a sprained foot. X-rays came back negative. Murray will undergo an MRI on Monday to further examine the extent of the damamge.
For what it's worth, owner Jerry Jones said he has "no idea" if Murray will be able to play next week against the Panthers. Meanwhile, Felix Jones rushed 18 times for 92 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens' defense, which was ravaged by injury during the game. Jones should be added in all leagues since a sprained foot will almost certainly cause Murray to miss some measure of game time. Jones would be a nifty play next week against Carolina's awful run defense.
