Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray did not practice on Friday in part because he has not met all of the rehabilitation standards required by team trainers, coach Jason Garrett said. Garrett said (via The Fort Worth Star-Telegram) that Murray was making progress but was still trying to pass some thresholds.
Murray has missed the last three games because of a sprained foot but had many people encouraged at practice on Thursday, when he caught two passes during an individual drill during the open media portion of practice. Murray will almost certainly be ruled on for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will be without Murray again this week but his return can't be far off if he's able to start doing a little work in practice. Felix Jones will get at least one more week as the starting running back but that hasn't been a great source of production.
Fantasy owners should still be holding onto Murray, while Jones is a low-end No. 2 fantasy running back in Week 10.
