DeMarco Murray injury: Cowboys RB questionable to return with knee sprain

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Murray has been injury-prone his entire career and missed six games last year after spraining his foot in October.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray left Sunday night's game against the Redskins in the second quarter with a knee sprain. He is questionable to return, according to multiple media reports.

Murray was on his way to a big performance against Dallas' NFC East rivals, already accumulating 29 rushing yards and a touchdown on seven carries at the time of his injury. He also hauled in two passes for 21 yards. He left the game with the Cowboys holding a 7-3 lead over the Redskins.

The third-year running back has a history with injuries, appearing in 13 games as a rookie and just 10 last year after spraining his foot in October. Murray has been one of the NFC's top running backs thus far in 2013; he entered the game with 399 rushing yards and two scores, including a monster performance in Week 3 against the Rams that put him in the running for Player of the Week honors.
