DeMarco Murray made an immediate impact in his return to the lineup on Sunday night against the Eagles. Murray had 83 yards on 23 carries and a touchdown. But he admitted afterward that the foot injury he suffered against the Ravens--and which kept him sidelined for the last six games--had him worried that he’d miss the rest of the season.
"Yeah, there was [some doubt],” Murray said, per ESPN Dallas. "After four or five weeks, I'm sitting there. It was feeling better after the first and second week and then after the third and fourth week it was at a stalemate and it was feeling the same. This past week is where I really turned the corner and it felt better so it was definitely a hard deal. It was something I had to give time to heal."
So, suffice it to say, Murray didn’t think this injury would be a six-week ordeal.
"I didn't think I would miss but a week or two at the most," Murray said. "After four or five weeks, six, it was hard. It was a very frustrating deal. I tried to stay positive and keep my head in the Bible and strive to get better."
