DeMarco Murray not expected to practice on Wednesday: Fantasy implications

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) was not expected to practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was not expected to practice on Wednesday, according to coach Jason Garrett. Murray has missed the last two games because of a sprained foot.

Felix Jones has started the last two games at running back for the Cowboys, who are coming off a narrow loss to the New York Giants. Jones had 74 total yards against the Carolina Panthers but managed just 19 against New York. Dallas plays the undefeated Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Team owner Jerry Jones said earlier in the week that he was hopeful that Murray could return this week and there is no reason he still can't at this point. Fantasy owners should see if Murray returns to practice later in the week and monitor injury reports.

Fantasy owners should hold off on making a decision on Murray for Week 9, especially since Felix Jones was so ineffective last week.
