Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is 'determined to play'

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Officially listed as questionable, unofficially Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is determined to play on Sunday against the Colts.

Murray, per a source with knowledge of the situation, declared even before having surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand on Monday that he will play in Week 16. At this point, it’s believed to be primarily a matter of pain tolerance and management.

Fantasy Impact: 

His workload may be limited somewhat to avoid hits on that left hand, but he should be out there for fantasy owners. Murray is averaging 28.9 touches per game this season. We currently project him for 19.1 touches (including 16.3 carries) with Randle getting 9.4 carries in a larger-than-usual backup role. If Murray is active, he's pretty much a must-start given his production this season and the favorable matchup against Indianapolis (#21 in RB aFPA).
