Murray Not Closing the Door on Eagles Game

DeMarco Murray suffered a sprained MCL in last week's win over the Redskins



    There doesn’t seem to be much of a chance that RB DeMarco Murray will play against the Eagles on Sunday, after suffering a sprained MCL in the first half of the win over the Redskins last week, but Murray isn’t closing the door on the idea just yet.

    I don’t know what’s been said,” Murray said this week, per the Dallas Morning News. “But my intentions are to just work hard and possible do everything I can to play this week. Is that going to happen? I don’t know. I am not saying one way or another. But we had a good day today and I am going to continue to do what the trainers tell me to do. We’ll see what happens later in the week.”

    Murray reportedly missed practice on Wednesday, but he was seen running off to the side. Owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that both Murray and DeMarcus Ware were highly doubtful for the Philly game, but Murray insists that even if he does sit out, it won’t be because of any pain in the knee--a good sign for Cowboys fans.

    “I was about to go back in and I just, like I said, they tested it,” Murray said of the injury. “All the tests were good. It was just a possibility or for me it was just about how comfortable I am going back in. It felt fine. I don’t think pain-related. It’s nothing like, aw, it hurts or anything like that. It’s just how comfortable I am later on in the week. I am not in pain or anything like that.”
