Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray suffers sprained MCL

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray @DeMarcoMurray suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee during the second quarter of Sunday night's win over the Redskins, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Murray gained 29 yards on seven carries, including a short score, before exiting. Garrett didn't say how long he thinks Murray will be out, but he did say Murray is "going to be a tough loss."

Fantasy Analysis:

Sprained MCLs usually lead to a multi-week absence from running backs. Murray will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. Rookie Joseph Randle @JRAN_1 saw more work in Murray's place -- 11 carries, 17 yards and a touchdown. It's obvious the team prefers him to Phillip Tanner @PTanner34 right now. And with both Murray and original backup Lance Dunbar @Dunbar_CDB5 injured, the rookie could very well start against the Eagles next week.

I have CJ Spiller, Danny Woodhead, DeMarco Murray, and Joseph Randle. Which two would you start this week?

I would roll with CJ and try and roll with Randle. I know everyone will say Woodhead but sometimes guys off the bench (Randle) want to show what they have.
