Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is listed as probable for the team's Week 9 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Murray is dealing with a knee injury that kept him out of the team's Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions. Murray had practiced all week and seemed prime to start.
Even owner Jerry Jones was shocked to see Murray didn't play. Jones is a very vocal owner, of course, but said that Murray could have played and seemed to imply that he should have. Head coach Jason Garrett was the one who made the decision to hold Murray out of the game.
Murray was a limited participant in practice leading up to that game, but has had a couple full practices this week. It would be shocking to see him miss this game.
Fantasy Impact: Murray has been productive this season. He's carried the ball 91 times for 428 yards with three touchdowns. That's a per-carry average of 4.7 yards. He had a poor game against the Washington Redskins, when he sustained his injury, but should be all systems go for this matchup. He should be considered a must-start as a RB2 at this point.
