Thoughts on Murray so far?

He had one good game against the Giants, but that's it. The Cowboys' O-line has been dreadful which is probably the biggest part of this, as I think Murray is a legit back. They have played some stout defenses so far though, and the schedule eases up a bit after the bye week, so maybe they'll turn things around against Carolina in week 7. Anyone bailed on Murray yet though?

He is a workhorse and always bouncing around trying to find a hole to run through, but his line sucks plain and simple. Whenever there is a glimpse of a hole he springs for good yardage. There is no way you can bail on him as an RB2 or flex option. However at RB1, you might want to think about a trade.

RB DeMarco Murray: B

It’s really difficult to grade Murray because, like Romo, his production is so dependent on the offensive line. One might argue that a running back averaging 3.9 yards-per-carry shouldn’t receive a “B” grade, but anyone who has watched the Cowboys knows that Murray must consistently make something out of nothing. Ask yourself this: do you think Felix Jones would have posted as many rushing yards as Murray if given the same type of blocking? Don’t forget that Murray is also on pace for 64 receptions.

The line is horrible plain and simple. If you can't run you can't be unpredictable. If you arent unpredictable a defense forces you to do what they are planning for. Dallas needs ton get healed so they can open holes and run more. That is the only way they will consistently win games which ultimately means more yards for Murray

Jerry Jones: DeMarco Murray has sprained foot, ‘no idea’ if he’ll be ready for next week
By Jon Machota / Special Contributor

After rushing 13 times for 90 yards in the first half, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray only carried once — for three yards — in the final two quarters.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said after the game that Murray suffered a sprained foot.

While exiting the stadium, Murray, who admitted he was trying to get back in the game, didn’t confirm an injury.

“That was their decision to pull me out,” Murray said. “It’s a long season. It’s only one game, so I have to do what’s best for the team.”

In terms of the severity of the injury, Jones said he did not know.

“We just don’t have a way to gauge it right now,” Jones said. “I wouldn’t necessarily rule him out of anything. It obviously was good enough to keep him off the field.”

Jones later said, “I have no idea whether or not he’s going to be ready next week or not.”

Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray expected to miss Carolina game

IRVING — Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is expected to miss Sunday’s game at Carolina with a sprained left foot.

But the news the Cowboys received Monday is encouraging.

The MRI revealed that Murray did suffer ligament damage in the first half of the team’s loss at Baltimore. But no bones are broken, and the Cowboys don’t believe there will be a prolonged absence. In fact, it appears his status could be treated as day-to-day very soon.

Murray leads the team in rushing with 330 yards and one touchdown. He picked up 93 yards against the Ravens before being forced to sit out all but one play in the second half.

Status of Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray remains up in the air

IRVING -- For the second time in his career, DeMarco Murray might have to miss a chance to play against the New York Giants.

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett couldn't say whether Murray would practice this week, even in a limited basis, as he enters his second week sidelined with a sprained foot.

Murray has played only one full game against the Giants, but he has rushed 25 times for 156 yards against them. He had 131 yards in the Cowboys' season-opening win in New York in September. He suffered a broken ankle in a December home game last year against the Giants and had to miss the season finale in New York for the NFC East championship.

"We're certainly optimistic," Garrett said. "He's proven to be someone who heals quickly."

Without Murray, who leads the Cowboys in rushing despite missing last week's game against Carolina and the second half against Baltimore, the Cowboys' running game is in flux.

ESPN's Ed Werder confirms the Cowboys are "not optimistic" that DeMarco Murray (foot) will play in Week 11.
The team is still skeptical that Murray's sprained foot is "sufficiently healed." Murray has yet to officially practice since Week 6, and the Cowboys have two games in five days. He's not a lock to return on Thanksgiving.

Cowboys Executive VP Stephen Jones says team will look to add running back

INDIANAPOLIS — The Cowboys rushing attack was feckless in 2012, accumulating 1,265 yards — the lowest total ever accumulated by a Dallas team during a 16-game season.

The woeful performance, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said, can be attributed to the fact that the offensive line was in flux and starter DeMarco Murray missed six games because of a sprained left foot. Compounding the problems were the struggles of Felix Jones, who failed to carry the load in Murray’s absence.

“Obviously Felix wasn’t as good as we would have liked,” Stephen Jones said Wednesday.

And Jones’ lack of productivity highlighted the need for a reliable backup who could fill in for the injury-prone Murray. Jones, who will be a free agent, is unlikely to return even though Stephen Jones said, “I wouldn’t shut the door on anybody.”

Asked if the Cowboys could draft a replacement for Jones, Stephen Jones said that is a real possibility.

“In this league, you have to have more than one back,” he said. “Obviously, we developed DeMarco Murray but you also have to look at the fact he hasn’t been healthy yet in terms of for a full season. I think we need a back. I like [Lance] Dunbar and I like [Phillip] Tanner but I think they’re more third backs than second backs.”
