Football News

DeMarco Murray has carried the Dallas Cowboys on his back all season to the edge of the playoffs.

Leading the NFL in yards and carries, Murray was bound to get injured and now he finally has, being forced to undergo surgery on a broken bone in his hand suffered earlier in the season.

But the Cowboys could be risking Murray's health for short-term gain, with Jerry Jones saying he'll be rushed back for the game against the Indianapolis Colts at the weekend.

Jerry's Word

"When they say the definition of healing, I'm not so sure how much it can heal between now and Sunday."

"Certainly he's got a lot of parts to his game that work - protection, what he does, frankly, with that hand when he's running with the ball, he usually carries it in his right hand," Jones said according to ESPN. "All of those things, it's conceivable to me, it's not unrealistic that it could work with him being ready."

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett spoke as well, saying it was definitely possible that Murray will play despite the time to heal.

"The biggest question we have to ask ourselves is, is he functional to do his job?" Garrett said. "Can he hold the football? Can he carry it under duress? Can he block? Can he do the things necessary to play the position?

It's good to see the Cowboys have their players best interests at heart. Oh wait...
