    The Dallas Cowboys don’t have anything new to say about the status of starting running back DeMarco Murray, who has missed the team’s past four games with a foot injury suffered in the loss to the Ravens in Baltimore--which is to say, yes, he’s still making progress, but his status for this Sunday’s matchup with the Browns in Arlington is far from certain.

    Dallas has made clear over the past few weeks that they won’t rush Murray’s return for fear of the injury being re-aggravated.

    There are a lot of different thresholds he has to get over,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday, via ESPN Dallas. “We keep asking him to take those tests, but he’s certainly making progress and we’ll see how he does. He was on the field last week (for one day) moving around, so we’ll just see how he is over the next couple of days and hopefully he can do something on Wednesday.”

    Murray has admitted that being sidelined for the last month of the season has been tough, but said after Sunday’s victory in Philadelphia that winning alleviates the frustration to a degree.

    "I just want to play," Murray said. "It's so hard (not playing). But when you win, it's easy. Now you got a break."
