DeMarco Murray: If There Was A Game Sunday, 29 Would Be In The Backfield

Murray suffered a season-ending ankle injury in 2011



    In his rookie season of 2011, Cowboys’ running back DeMarco Murray was one of just a few bright spots for Dallas, but--fittingly enough for the team’s season last year--even this bright spot had a damper put on it, as Murray fractured his ankle in week 14, forcing him to miss the last three games of the year.

    In the 13 games he played, Murray posted 897 yards and two touchdowns on 164 attempts. Felix Jones, who was named the starter prior to the season and held that role until an injury allowed Murray to step in and take it from him midseason, had 575 yards and one touchdown on 125 attempts.

    Given Jones’ history of injuries, we’d imagine that fans across the Metroplex are hoping that Murray recovers quickly and fully--and to this end, we have some good news. Murray said recently that he was fine, via Twitter.

    From his Twitter feed, @DeMarcoMurray, via the Dallas Morning News: “Everyone keeps asking me how I'm feeling.. Let's just say if there was a game this Sunday,29 would be in the backfield!”
