The Cowboys are going to hire former Lions OC Scott Linehan on their staff to calls plays, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Linehan's offenses in Detroit were pass-happy, so this is a strange hire from the standpoint that the biggest criticism of the Dallas offense in 2013 is that they didn't run DeMarco Murray enough. The hire is good news for Tony Romo owners as it looks like he'll be passing early and often in 2014. Linehan took the Lions from 26th in yards gained in his first season as OC (2009) to three consecutive top 6 seasons from 2011 to 2013.

ESPN Dallas - [Full Article]

There was a thought starting running back DeMarco Murray would play for the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. But Murray missed his second consecutive game with a sprained left knee.

"I think DeMarco Murray could have gone," Jones said after the Cowboys' 31-30 loss to the Lions. "I don’t know what risk we would have taken with him, but he could have gone."

Fantasy Impact:

Murray was limited in practice last week and said if he was practicing he expected to play. It's likely the team was just being cautious, but it should at least be a good sign Murray plays Week 9 against the Vikings. Joseph Randle rushed for 26 yards on 14 carries. Lance Dunbar also rushed for 16 yards on five carries.

Calvin Watkins, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bryan Broaddus ‏of the Cowboys' official site and Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas both expect DeMarco Murray to play against the Lions in Week 8.

Fantasy Impact:

Given all the teams on bye, Murray would offer fringe RB1 value in a nice matchup with the Lions. Obviously, a limited workload or a re-injury are legitimate concerns.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show Tuesday that he hopes running back DeMarco Murray can return to practice this week and possibly play against the Detroit Lions Sunday after missing the Eagles game with a sprained knee.

But Jones, citing the Cowboys depth at running back, said the team will be cautious Murray.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones added that Murray ran well but the team will still be cautious with him going forward, mostly because he liked the way Joseph Randle played last week against the Eagles.
