Maybe next week.
The Dallas Cowboys have ruled running back DeMarco Murray out of Sunday’s game at Philadelphia with a sprained foot.
It will be the fourth consecutive game Murray has missed and he has yet to return to practice, although he was outfitted in a helmet and cleats for rehabilitation work on the side on Thursday, according to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas.
Felix Jones will start again in place of Murray, who the Cowboys say needs to be 100 percent before he is back in action. Murray had 330 yards rushing on the season when he was injured in Week 6 against Baltimore. Durability was concern when he came out of Oklahoma last year.
Maybe Murray will have a chance to get on the field next week when the Cowboys host the Cleveland Browns. But precious time is running out in a season for the Cowboys that has been turned on its side.
