Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray practiced as normal on Wednesday, just over a week after he had surgery to repair a broken bone in his left hand, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

This is good news of course but not surprising, considering Murray practiced last week and carried the ball 22 times for 58 yards and a touchdown in the 42-7 victory over the Colts, this after it was widely debated whether or not he’d even suit up.

"It affected me a little bit, it was hurting throughout the game," Murray said after the win, per ESPN Dallas. "But I made my mind up a long time ago that I was going to play. I was happy to be out there and happy to do whatever I can to help this team win and it's awesome with the win."

Absent from practice on Wednesday was linebacker Rolando McClain, who is in Alabama taking care of matters related to the fire that destroyed his house on Monday.
