DeMarco Murray Likely To Return This Week

Nov 30, 2012 9:44 PM

DeMarco Murray will likely play for the first time since spraining his left foot on Oct. 14.

The Cowboys play the Eagles in Dallas.

“We’ll see how he responds today,” Jerry Jones said on KRLD-FM (105.3). “But the key day was yesterday. He came back from the day before, which was his first day out. Usually that is a leveling-off or setback day if you have the effects of your first day back.

“He didn’t have that. He practiced well. We’ll see how he does these next couple of days. But it looks like we’ll have him.”
