DeMarco Murray's return date still uncertain: Fantasy implications

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The return date for Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray remains uncertain. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Dallas Cowboys hope to get running back DeMarco Murray back for Week 13 but that now seems like less of a certainty. Team owner Jerry Jones said Thursday (via ESPNDallas.com) that he wasn't sure if or when Murray would be able to return. Jones said the team hasn't been able to get a "prognosis that another week's rest will do anything."

Murray has missed six straight games because of a sprained foot that he hurt against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. Felix Jones, who had 61 total yards and a touchdown on Thursday, has been the starting running back since Murray's injury.

Fantasy Impact: Murray has made a few appearances recently on the practice field but fantasy owners will have to keep waiting for him to be cleared to return. Jones has saved a few poor outings with touchdowns but has not been reliable for Dallas or fantasy owners.

Murray has time to get ready for Week 13 but it sounds like he will have to be healthier to be out there against Philadelphia.
