Update: DeMarco Murray was seen carrying his crutches and walking without a limp, but is still unlikely to play Sunday, according to reports. Felix Jones is expected to start against the Giants, ahead of Phillip Tanner, despite a strained neck and a sprained knee.
DeMarco Murray could return to practice Wednesday for the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Jason Garrett told the Dallas Morning News. Murray was on crutches and wearing a walking boot Friday to protect his sprained left foot, but Garrett called the running back a quick healer.
If Murray is able to practice, it would likely only be on a limited basis. There is still no word yet either way on his playing status for Week 8 against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Impact: With Felix Jones also on the mend after suffering a bruised left knee last Sunday, Phillip Tanner could be in line for a feature role against the Giants. Keep a sharp eye on injury reports this week. We probably won't have a very good idea as to how carries will be shared until closer to game time.
If Murray is somehow able to play Sunday, he would make a very intriguing fantasy option. He gashed the Giants in the season opener for a season-high 131 yards rushing.
