DeMarco Murray injury status: Ruled out, no fantasy value again


DeMarco Murray has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (foot) has been officially ruled out for Sunday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons. Murray hasn't played since Week 6, when he left the game with a sprained foot. He has not practiced this week and there is no set timetable for his return.

Felix Jones will get the start again, backed up by Phillip Tanner.

Fantasy Impact: Dallas beat writers have been speculating that Murray will start practicing next week, but that's still a big "maybe". We won't know about his Week 10 status until Wednesday, when practices actually start. Keep him on your bench until then.

Jones has been struggling with his own injury issues and should lose more snaps to Tanner. Neither guy is a viable fantasy option.
