Cowboys believe DeMarco Murray can play Sunday

DeMarco Murray underwent surgery to repair a broken finger on Monday, but still could be available to face the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

The Dallas Cowboys are hopeful that running back DeMarco Murray will be able to play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts at AT&T Stadium, despite a broken finger on his left hand, per Ed Werder of ESPN.

Werder notes that the full recovery time is six weeks, but Murray won’t face any additional risk by playing with it and that the pain is easily tolerated. Murray broke the finger on Sunday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles and had a pin inserted on Monday, giving many pause on his availability.

The Cowboys sit 10-4 and leaders of the NFC East, although a loss this week or next would likely put Dallas on the outside of the playoff picture. Murray has had a tremendous season, rushing for a league-high 1,687 rushing yards on 4.8 yards per carry with 11 touchdowns.

Should Murray not be able to play, the rushing duties would fall on Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle, who have run for a combined 328 yards and two scores this season.
