Cowboys owner Jerry Jones mentioned that RB DeMarco Murray is “probably” going to miss Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
“He’s probably going to be out,” Jones said of Murray on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via the Dallas Morning News. “We’ll miss him certainly this coming week and then we’ll see from there. I can’t emphasize enough how much doctors and trainers depend on the response of a player when you’re rehabbing injury, because all players have injury and some of them have it in an area that can be more limited, relative to their ability to long term – long term being in this case, playing throughout the season.”
Murray suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee. Dallas will also be without Lance Dunbar who is dealing with hamstring injury of his own, so it appears as though rookie Joseph Randle will be asked to handle the workload in Week 7.
Demarco Murray has sprained MCL but right now believes there is a chance he plays this weekend. Depends how he feels Friday
