Cowboys’ running backs coach Skip Peete won’t go so far as to agree with DeMarco Murray’s assertion last week (via Twitter, of course) that if the team had had a game that Sunday, he would be available to play in it--but he has been highly encouraged by what he’s seen out of the team’s breakout star of 2011, whose rookie year was cut short by a fractured ankle, in offseason workouts.
Murray was injured in week 14 of 2011 and forced to miss the team’s last three games. But according to Peete, the injury isn’t showing any nagging effects or limiting the Oklahoma product much, if at all, in practice.
"He's at a point now where he goes and does everything on the field with everybody else," Peete said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I know he comes out and does every on-field drill and runs routes with the backs and catches with the quarterbacks."
