Cowboys coach Jason Garrett benched running back DeMarco Murray during last week’s preseason game after Murray fumbled. Murray says that if Garrett was trying to get his attention, he didn’t need to.
That’s because, according to Murray, Murray is not a fumbler and knows that holding onto the ball is essential.
“I know how important the ball is,” Murray said, via WFAA. “I wouldn’t say it got my attention. I know how important the ball is. You can’t fumble. Since I’ve been carrying the ball since high school, college, even here, I’ve never been a fumbler. I won’t be so I’m not worried about it.”
The story points out that Murray has only fumbled four times in 386 regular-season touches in his two-year career, so he can make a pretty good case that he really isn’t a fumbler. Murray makes for a pretty good RB2 candidate on your fantasy team with an ADP of the fourth round. We rank him 17th among our RBs.
