Dallas Cowboys list DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray as doubtful

The Dallas Cowboys will enter Sunday’s big NFC East clash against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles with the availability of two of their biggest key contributors in doubt.

It really comes as no surprise, but star defensive end DeMarcus Ware and starting running back DeMarco Murray are listed as doubtful entering the Week 7 match up, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Neither player was available for practice all week, so the doubtful status is likely just some very slim optimism that either man could play. Realistically, they will both be out.

Ware is dealing with a quad injury that could keep him out of action for up to a month, while Murray is dealing with a sprained MCL in his left new that should keep him out for two to three weeks.

For the Cowboys, this will mean that Joseph Randle and Phillip Tanner will split the reps at running back to make up for Murray’s absence.

As for replacing Ware, that duty will fall in to the hands of Kyle Wilber.
