DeMarco Murray to undergo more tests on injured foot, Week 8 fantasy value in question

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray will undergo tests on his injured foot on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is expected to undergo more tests on his injured foot on Monday, according to ESPNDallas.com. Murray was held out of Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers because of a sprained left foot. Felix Jones started in place of Murray and finished with 74 total yards before sitting out the final two drives of the game with a bruised knee.

Murray last week was in a protective boot and on crutches but the Cowboys are hoping to have him back for Week 8 against the New York Giants. Murray rushed for 131 yards and 20 carries in the season-opening win for the Cowboys over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Murray's return would be a boost for the Cowboys and fantasy owners, who didn't get a lot from Felix Jones (74 yards) on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Murray was running the ball well recently for Dallas before getting hurt against Baltimore.

Fantasy owners will probably have to wait until later in the week before making a decision on whether to use Murray against New York.
