Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray returned to practice as expected on Thursday, a day after sitting out to rest his foot. Murray, who missed six games earlier this season with a sprained foot, has typically not practiced on Wednesdays since returning from the injury. He was listed as a limited participant on Thursday.
Murray ran for 81 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 and has scored in three straight games since returning to the Dallas lineup. The Cowboys face the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.
Fantasy Impact: Murray was never in danger of missing Week 16 and fantasy owners should again put him in their lineups with confidence against New Orleans.
Murray should be considered a No. 1 fantasy option this weekend at running back.
