Cowboys Beat: Team won't get away from run game without DeMarco Murray

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Beat writer Brandon George answered a question about the Cowboys offense passing more if DeMarco Muarry doesn't play:

George: I think you'd see more of Tony Romo without Murray. But I don't think they'd get totally away from the run game. Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar are good enough to do well behind this offensive line. Randle has had several big runs of late and would be fine against a Colts team that struggles against the run.

Fantasy Impact:

If anything, the Colts may be able to play a bit more balanced and do more to prevent WR Dez Bryant from hurting them without Murray in the lineup. George added in his Q & A that he "would doubt [Murray will] practice fully at any point this week. Other running backs have come right back and played with this injury. No reason to think Murray couldn't do the same."

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 10. Romo is good to go for a so-so matchup against the Jaguars. His presence gives Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams a boost.

Thursday, November 6, 2014, 6:28pm

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Romo’s limited practice is encouraging. The feeling is that he will play, so we added him to our rankings. If he can’t go, it’s a downgrade for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams given Brandon Weeden’s woeful performance in Week 9.

Jerry Jones expects Cowboys QB Tony Romo to play in Week 10

Dallas News - [Full Article]

Cowboys QB Tony Romo practiced for the first time since injuring his back 10 days ago in the loss to Washington. Owner Jerry Jones believes he will take the field at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

“I’m anticipating him playing,’’ Jones said. “I have no reason to think that he won’t.

“Anytime he can play, we want him to play. We’re a better team, to be trite, with him playing. There’s no such thing as holding him out and foregoing the potential chance that we win.’’

Fantasy Impact:

Romo was at practice on Thursday, but was limited. It's a good sign towards his potential availability, but owners should wait until later in the week before inserting him into their lineups. His return would be a boost for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams.

Wednesday, November 5, 2014, 6:08pm

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) did not practice Wednesday. Romo is iffy for Week 10, though the team claims optimism about his ability to play against the Jagaurs. If he can’t go, it’s a downgrade for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams given Brandon Weeden’s woeful performance in Week 9. We currently expect Weeden to play.

Week 8 MNF Injury Report - Robert Griffin III QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, October 25, 2014, 5:00pm

Redskins
QUESTIONABLE
QB Robert Griffin (ankle), CB Tracy Porter (hamstring)

PROBABLE
DE Chris Baker (thigh), S Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder), RB Alfred Morris (ankle), T Tyler Polumbus (knee), LB Perry Riley (knee), T Trent Williams (knee)

Cowboys
OUT
DE Jack Crawford (calf)

PROBABLE
WR Dez Bryant (shoulder), LB Bruce Carter (thigh), T Doug Free (foot), S Jakar Hamilton (not injury related), T Jermey Parnell (chest), QB Tony Romo (back), DE Anthony Spencer (knee, foot)

Fantasy Impact:

RGIII is questionable and was limited at practice all week. The team said they are preparing as of Colt McCoy is starting, but leaving open the possibility Griffin will play. Seems like a longshot, and owners shouldn't count on him. On top of those risks, the Cowboys defense has been playing well this year so it's not a great matchup for Washington on the road.

Also of note, Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and QB Tony Romo are considered probable, as is Washington RB Alfred Morris. All are expected to play and it's especially a great matchup for Bryant and Romo.
