Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray could miss this week's game against the Carolina Panthers and possibly longer after an MRI revealed ligament damage to his foot, according to the team's website. It is expected that Murray will be questionable for Sunday's game, but Clarence Hill reported that the team decided to hold him out prior to the results of his MRI being available.
