DeMarco Murray injury update news is still muddled for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday morning (Oct. 27). The Murray injury isn't quite fully recovered, so he is going to test his knee during pregame warmups before his status against the Detroit Lions is even determined. According to a report, he comes into the game listed as questionable, but there are serious doubts that he is going to be able to suit up for the game.
A good week of practice probably has fantasy football owners ready to put him back in the starting lineup, but coming back from an MCL sprain isn't that easy. If he does play in the Week 8 game against the Lions, the team would be rushing him back into action and risking further problems with that knee. It's unclear where the front office will insist that he play if he is ready to go, though, so it's still impossible to predict which direction the team is going to go.
The team also hasn't named the official backup if this DeMarco Murray injury update ends up being a bad one on Sunday morning. The Dallas Cowboys could go with either Joseph Randle or Lance Dunbar as the premiere back for the day, or they could just allow the two guys to split all the carries. If the team does go with their main man, he probably has to be started in fantasy leagues because the Bills give up more than 100 yards on the ground every week. Those would be nice numbers, so tune in to the pregame for Dallas vs. Detroit and start him if the news is good.
