DeMarco Murray will not play Week 7 when the Dallas Cowboys visit the Carolina Panthers, the Dallas Morning New reports. Murray suffered ligament damage in his left foot during Sunday's game, and was unable to play after halftime. He had 93 yards rushing despite playing only 30 minutes of football.
An MRI exam Monday revealed no broken bones in the foot. While that's good news, it appears that Murray will have to be evaluated week-to-week to determine his playing status. There is a very real possibility that he will miss several weeks of action.
Fantasy Impact: This is obviously a major blow to fantasy owners in every format. Murray's regular involvement in the passing game helped counter his struggles running the ball in the weeks leading up to Sunday, and boosted his value in PPR leagues.
With Murray out, Felix Jones should see an immediate boost in fantasy value, followed by 215-pound Phillip Tanner. Jones rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against the Baltimore Ravens. Tanner managed 31 yards on nine carries.
