IRVING — Cowboys starting running back DeMarco Murray is wearing three steel turf toe plates inside his shoe to help protect his left foot from further injury.
Murray said he wore the steel plates in his left cleat Sunday against Philadelphia. It was the first game he played since suffering ligament damage in his left foot Oct. 14 at Baltimore. After missing six games, Murray returned against the Eagles and touched the ball on 27 of the 37 plays he was in for, including a season-high 23 carries.
“The cleats were light, but after the plates, they were a little heavy,” Murray said, “but it was fine.”
Murray didn’t practice Wednesday at Valley Ranch. The Cowboys held him out for precautionary reasons to help manage his sprained left foot injury. Murray said he did some conditioning on the side Wednesday and expects to return to practice Thursday.
