The injury bug appears to bite DeMarco Murray every season. Unfortunately for the Dallas Cowboys, he’s been bitten before a crucial Week 16 matchup contrary to the Indianapolis Colts this season.
Murray has undergone surgery for a broken hand bone, but has yet to be ruled out for Sunday’s game. However, it always seems just like a stretch each time a player tries to compete in a game during the same week of these surgery. This has been done before, despite having strong results, however the chances are that Murray will soon be limited or not quite himself.
The safe bet is always to let him sit and not risk further injury. While there’s a chance the Cowboys could be screwed without him in Week 16, there’s a straight better chance they’ll be screwed without him for the rest of the season.
If Dallas didn’t have the most effective offensive line in football, then maybe you add him back available contrary to the Colts. Maybe if Dez Bryant wasn’t on fire at this time, you roll the dice a little. But given how dynamic Bryant has looked as of late and the way the Cowboys’o-line has opened up holes all season long, Dallas shouldn’t bother about handing off to Joseph Randle and/or Lance Dunbar.
If the Cowboys are truly a Super Bowl-caliber team, we’ll find out this Sunday. Not merely are the Colts a top-notch opponent, Dallas will probably need certainly to lean on other members of its offensive to carry force with no services of the finest in football.
