Dallas owner Jerry Jones said Sunday night that he expects RB DeMarco Murray to play this weekend in Philadelphia, but there are no guarantees.
Following his Monday press conference, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett explained how Murray needs to complete a series of tests before he is cleared to return.
“The process you go through with an injury like that is you have different thresholds,” Garrett said. “He has to be able to do different things. He has to be able to 10 times go up and down on his toes. Then, he has to be able to hop on his foot by itself without any pain. Then, he has to be able to jog. All that kind of stuff."
Garrett said there is a number of different thresholds that Murray has to get past before he can even practice. We are likely to know more as the week goes on and the team is back at practice. The Eagles and Cowboys square off in Philly, but it is a 4 p.m. start.
