DeMarco Murray had a successful return to the field on Sunday when he carried the ball 23 times for 83 yards with a touchdown in a 38-33 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys want to ensure that he stays healthy enough for those touches and sat him for Wednesday practice, but he is expected to return on Thursday.
Murray also added four catches for 19 yards in the win.
Fantasy Take: Despite missing most of the season with a foot injury, the 23 carries were a season-high and he's the unquestioned main back without restriction. Murray is a good bet to be a low-end RB1, high-end RB2 for the rest of the year and owners that stashed him for the playoffs might get a payoff.
The Bengals are 11th against the run but 20th in yards per carry allowed.
