Another day, a little more optimism that DeMarco Murray will finally return in Sunday’s match-up with the Eagles at Cowboys Stadium.
Murray hasn’t played a snap since suffering a foot injury against the Baltimore Ravens back on October 14, but after practicing Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said that “it looks like” he will go against Philadelphia.
“We’ll see how he responds today,” Jones told 105.3-FM “The Fan” on Friday, via the Dallas Morning News. “But the key day was yesterday. He came back from the day before, which was his first day out. Usually that is a leveling-off or setback day if you have the effects of your first day back."
“He didn’t have that. He practiced well. We’ll see how he does these next couple of days. But it looks like we’ll have him.”
Murray has missed six games with the injured foot, and in those games, Dallas has topped 100 rushing yards as a team just once, in the first meeting with these Eagles.
