DeMarco Murray has ligament damage in foot, fantasy status unknown for now

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Cowboys fear DeMarco Murray has ligament damage in his foot, but it's not a Lisfranc injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray suffered ligament damage in his foot, but it's not expected to be season-ending, according to a report from ESPN Dallas. Murray will undergo an MRI on Monday, so the severity of his injury is still unknown, but the team confirmed that it's not a Lisfranc injury which would have ended his season.

Murray left Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens with the injury after getting 93 rushing yards on 14 carries.

Fantasy Impact: The good news is that it's not the dreaded Lisfranc fracture, which has plagued NFL players the past couple news. The bad news is that Murray still can't stay healthy, having his season ended early last year with an ankle sprain.

Felix Jones showed some life against the Ravens on Sunday, and fantasy owners would do good to grab him off the wire as soon as possible if Murray can't play any time soon.
