The Dallas Cowboys offense took a hit when they’re leading rusher went down with an injury in the Sunday’s win over the Washington Redskins. His status is still unknown but it seems like the Cowboys will be without Murray on Sunday, but he is preparing to play.
“I am preparing like I am playing this week, the way I’m preparing mentally in the classroom, physically on the field,” Murray said after Wednesday’s practice, via ESPN Dallas. “I am running, doing some good things with [trainer] Britt [Brown]. We haven’t said which way, what we’re going to do yet. I think it all depends on how comfortable I am. We were able to do some things today and it felt good.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said earlier in this week that Murray won’t be playing.
“He’s probably going to be out,” Jones said of Murray on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via the Dallas Morning News. “We’ll miss him certainly this coming week and then we’ll see from there.”
“I don’t know what’s been said,” Murray said when told about Jones’ comments. “But my intentions are to just work hard and possibly do everything I can to play this week. Is that going to happen? I don’t know. I am not saying one way or another. But we had a good day (Wednesday) and I am going to continue to do what the trainers tell me to do. We’ll see what happens later in the week.”
