DeMarco Murray Fantasy News
Cowboys hire Scott Linehan as OC
Tuesday, January 28, 2014, 10:36am
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.

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.
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.

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.
