Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray practices in full Thursday
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was close to playing in Week 8. It looks like there will be no "close" this week; he's going to play against the Vikings. Murray went through his second consecutive day of full practice on Thursday.
Murray missed the past two games with a sprained MCL, but it feels like the Cowboys are ready to welcome him back with a healthy workload. And the Vikings are a fantastic welcoming mat; they have allowed the third-most fantasy points to running backs this season. Murray is a low-end RB1 for this week. Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will probably mix in with a couple of carries here and there.
