The Cowboys had a record-setting day on the ground Sunday, but starting running back DeMarco Murray
wasn’t available for more than half of it.
Murray suffered a foot injury on a long run in the second quarter and checked out of the game, giving way to the likes of Felix Jones
, Phillip Tanner
and Lance Dunbar
, who combined for 136 yards. Murray came back in the third period for a couple snaps to test the pain in his foot, but left for good again, finishing with 93 yards on 14 carries. The Cowboys’ 227 rushing yards were the most ever allowed by the Ravens.
Murray will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of his injury, but the Cowboys are optimistic. When Jones left for the locker room with dehydration in the third quarter, Murray was putting his gloves on preparing to go back in the game, but Tanner was given the nod instead.
Did you know there are only 5000 Snow Leopards in the wild now and they are confined to Central Asia? However, the effective global population (those likely to reproduce) is less than half that number.
