Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray not ruled out, but he won't play Sunday
You know you have been out for a while when a "doubtful" designation on the injury report represents a step in the right direction. That's how it is with Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray . He closed out last week by going through some individual drills for the first time since spraining his left foot in Week 6 and although he didn't officially practice this week, he continued to do more on-field work. Murray did say on Thursday that his foot feels the best it has since the injury.
Don't count your eggs just yet, but a Week 12 return for Murray is looking more and more like a realistic possibility. Until then, Felix Jones will keep on starting in Murray's place. After a 19-touch, 93-yard game against the Eagles in Week 10, he is a nice RB2 on Sunday versus the Redskins.
