Tony Romo says losing DeMarco Murray will be tough

Oct 13, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (29) runs with the ball against Washington Redskins linebacker Perry Riley Jr. (56) at AT&T Stadium

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins on Sunday night but it came with a price. Defensive end DeMarcus Ware and running back DeMarco Murray left the game with injuries. Both of them play positions struggling with depth. The Cowboys defensive line performed well after Ware left, the running game was a different story.

In the game, Joseph Randle carried the ball 11 times for 17 yards, while Phillip Tanner added one carry for two yards.

“Any time a player comes out of the game and can’t go back in, you’re concerned,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said. “We’re playing well with him. There’s a fall-off there, but I also thought it was nice for Randle to get in there and get his feet wet. I think it’s only going to get better for him.”

There are reports that Randle will start at running back for the Cowboys against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Yeah, DeMarco, that’s going to be a tough loss,” Tony Romo said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Murray will have an MRI on Monday to examine his injury and determine the severity of the sprained left MCL. Cowboys fans can be optimistic, but given his injury history, this looks like bad news headed their way.

The Dallas Morning News said earlier that’s it’s not uncommon for a player to miss 4-6 weeks with this type of injury.
