Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was expected to try and practice on Wednesday, according to ESPNDallas.com. Murray has not played since Week 6, when he sprained his foot in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Felix Jones has been starting in place of Murray.
Murray has recently practiced on a limited basis but has never been close to returning. Coach Jason Garrett said this week that Murray was still trying to push off on the foot but had not suffered a setback. The Cowboys face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should wait to see how much Murray does before plugging him back into the lineup. It doesn't sound like he's 100 percent but Garrett has said that Murray wouldn't need much practice time before returning to the field.
A lot will depend on how practice goes this week but Murray should not be considered anything more than a flex play for this week. Jones's value will depend on Murray.
