Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray would not need a lot of practice time to play in a game, coach Jason Garrett said on Thursday. Murray has missed the last four games with a sprained left foot but has been recently going through on-field rehab.
Murray is not expected to play on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns in part because of the short turnaround ahead of the Thanksgiving Day game in Week 12. Murray has not yet been ruled out for Week 11 and Garrett suggested that Murray could be limited in practice on Thursday. Felix Jones would again start if Murray doesn't play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should expect to be without Murray for at least one more game. The most likely scenario for his return is Week 13 but he could be back a game earlier.
Jones remains a No. 2 fantasy option at running back for this week but his days as the starter are numbered.
