DeMarco Murray surprised a lot of people when he emerged as the Dallas Cowboys’ no. 1 running back as a rookie in 2011, and apparently, DeMarco Murray was one of those people.
The University of Oklahoma product was the guest on Wednesday’s SportsNation chat on ESPN.com, where he fielded questions sent in by fans from across North America. One such fan asked Murray if he could’ve imagined the sort of success he saw in his rookie year.
“I knew I would have some success, but I didn’t know it would go that well,” Murray said, via the Dallas Morning News. “But I was blessed to have good coaches and once I got the opportunity, I ran with it…literally.”
As for the fractured ankle that cut Murray’s stellar rookie season short, he said in the same chat that everything was looking good going into 2012.
“The ankle is doing great,” Murray said. “I’ll be able to do whatever the coaches want me to do.”
