Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (foot) insists his sprained foot is getting better, but there's still no timetable for his return. According to ESPN Dallas, Murray was walking in the locker room without a boot or scooter. When asked about his status for Week 8, he only repeated "it's getting better, it's getting better."
Murray hasn't been officially ruled out for the Falcons game, but it's very unlikely he will be ready in time.
Fantasy Impact: He's not practicing this week, so fantasy owners should probably write him off for Week 8. We'll wait for injury reports next week before determining his Week 9 status.
As for his fantasy handcuff, Felix Jones (knee) got limited practice Thursday and is expected to start. I don't recommend him as anything more than a desperate bye-week filler.
