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 matchup against the Detroit Lions. Murray had practiced all week, and most figured that he would play.
That includes owner Jerry Jones, who expected Murray to play and was vocal about it after the game. Head coach Jason Garrett made the decision to sit Murray who is dealing with a knee injury. He was a limited participant in practice that week, but has practiced each day in the lead up to Sunday's game and he should be good to go.
Murray has been productive thus far, rushing 91 times for 428 yards with three touchdowns. That's a per-carry average of 4.7 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Murray had a poor game against the Washington Redskins, but that was the game he hurt his knee. He's had much stronger games this season, and looks ready to go. Fantasy owners should start him with confidence, and is a must-start RB2 for most leagues.
