DeMarco Murray Continues to Deal With Hamstring Injury

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray continues to stand on the sidelines during the team’s OTAs. Murray is expected to be a major part of the offense in 2013, but the Cowboys may be starting to get a little concerned with the nagging injuries that continue to hold Murray back. According to Todd Archer of, Murray’s hamstring issue that he suffered last week was deemed “minor”, but he has yet to return to the field.

This has to be troubling for the Cowboys, who chose not to re-sign Felix Jones this offseason.

Murray has missed a total of nine games over the past two seasons and the recent injury makes it clear that Murray is injury prone. Behind the former Oklahoma standout, they have only an unproven rookie in Joseph Randle.

Unfortunately, Randle is still recovering from thumb surgery, so he has been limited in minicamps.

The good news is that the fifth-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State is confident about this upcoming season and he looks like a great fit in the Cowboys offense. If Randle can get in some reps during training camp, he will be a very viable back up and could be an intriguing sleeper pick in the late rounds of your fantasy draft.

    I know it’s only May, but this is concerning. When players can’t be or stay healthy in the off season, it should be a concern. It’s a physicality and training issue. Teams can’t depend on players that are not dependable. It doesn’t matter if a player is a HOFer for 3 games a year. Players need to be consistently productive for every game the whole year. Hopefully Tanner and Randle are ready to go. I really wanted the Boys to sign Chris Ivory from the Saints this off season, but they did not listen to me and the Jets signed him. Ivory carried a full load for his whole rookie year and hasn’t been used much since. Felix is done. Don’t want him anywhere near this team. Eagles only signed him to get info out of him.
