DeMarco Murray has been listed as doubtful for Sunday’s match-up with the Cleveland Browns at Cowboys Stadium, but for what it’s worth, he feels pretty good. Murray said this week, a week that saw him participate lightly in a few practice sessions, that he’s feeling about as good as he has since suffering that foot injury in the loss to the Ravens.
“Today, this week is the best I’ve felt, so once I feel that I can help this team and I can be ready to go and play like I’m accustom to playing, I’m going to get out there,” Murray said, per ESPN Dallas. “It’s a waiting game right now.”
The Cowboys have made it very clear that they won’t rush Murray’s return for fear of him re-aggravating the injury and being sidelined through the home stretch of the 2012 season. Despite his being frustrated by missing four games--it’ll most likely be five, as of Sunday--Murray doesn’t disagree with the cautious approach.
“It’s a tricky deal when dealing with ligaments and things like that,” Murray said. “It’s kind of like a scar. You’ve got to let it heal, but I definitely feel very, very good about where we’re at right now.”
