Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray wants to return to the field but doesn't know when he will. Murray said Tuesday (via The Fort Worth Star-Telegram) that he's "dying to get out there." However, the only hint of a timetable was him saying that he would be back "before you know it."
Murray has missed the last four games because of a sprained foot, although he was on the practice field last week doing some rehab work. Felix Jones has started in Murray's place for the Cowboys, who face the Cleveland Browns in Week 11.
Fantasy Impact: Murray should be considered a longshot to return on Sunday. Murray hasn't practiced in more than a month but there is a sense he's getting closer.
Jones turned in a good game in Week 10 against the Eagles and could allow Dallas another week to get Murray ready. Jones should be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back this week against Cleveland.
