    As you’ve probably heard, DeMarco Murray is having a pretty nice campaign through seven weeks.

    Murray is leading the NFL in rushing with 913 yards, and still hasn’t had a game in which he’s recorded less than 100. However, he’s also leading the league in attempts, causing some to wonder if the 26-year-old can keep it up.

    Murray himself isn’t all that concerned about his workload, though, and his offseason workouts with veteran tight end Jason Witten are a big reason why he believes he can handle it.

    “It helped a lot, obviously with the stamina aspect just building a good armor for your body so you can take some hits and take the pounding of a long season,” Murray said, per ESPN Dallas. “He's done it for a long time and he's someone who has had a lot of success in this league and he knows what to do to take care of your body in season and out of season, so it helped extremely a lot and I have to thank him and we're still working together.”
