    It appears that once again the Cowboys will not have the services of running back DeMarco Murray Thursday when they line up on Thanksgiving against the rival Redskins.

    Murry is still nursing a foot injury, and did not participate in Monday’s practice and are not expected to play in Thursday’s game.

    Murray has missed the last five games and his backup, Felix Jones, was limited in the Monday workout because of a knee ailment.

    Dang. Injury a little worse than initially thought.

    If they had known the time table was going to be this long, he would have been a perfect candidate for the IR exemption. Although he would definitely have to sit out for 1 more game (maybe 2, not sure), its possible that he sit out anyway.

    I said it when we drafted him, This guy is made of glass. He was ALWAYS injured in college. That's why he slipped to the 3rd round. Not sure why JJ thought he would suddenly be an iron man in the NFL.

    It's called taking a chance on someone with talent. Every team does it. It's not that complicated.

    He's out for the year. No great loss anyway. Considering his performance so far this year, I would just a soon have Felix.

    I think he missed like 6 games in college (I could be a bit off though), that isn't exactly made of glass. With his talent, he is definitely worth a 3rd rd gamble.

    If he didn't play Sunday, I wasn't expecting him to play four days later.

    Funny, he managed to break pretty much every offensive record at OU -- he must be REALLY good considering he was ALWAYS injured in college, huh?

    Remind me to never hire you as my GM, your talent evaluation leaves a lot to be desired.

    2007 - Suffered a dislocated knee cap in game No. 11 at Texas Tech, then missed the remainder of the season and the subsequent spring workouts

    2008 - Played entire season, but, suffered hamstring injury on opening kickoff of Big 12 Championship and missed BCS Championship game

    2009 - No injuries

    2010 - No injuries

    Did I miss something? How was he "ALWAYS" injured in college? He missed two regular season games in his first two seasons, getting hurt in only the last game or two each season.

    I don't understand why people say "injury prone" either. How can anyone say that a certain player is prone to injury more than any other, it's about bad luck mostly. Unless a player is not conditioned to play, that is a different story, but from what I understand Murray is a work out warrior.

    another wasted draft pick by our front office. murray has so much talent but cannot stay healthy. his injury has held this team back this year so far. as bad as the oline is he still the best rb on this team in creating his own yards.

    Yeah, you are right. "Injury prone" is largely a myth. Its one of those "logical error" things. "So and so was injured before, so he must get injured again." The fact is that a previously injured player is no more likely to be injured than one who hasn't been injured before, unless the injury results from an incomplete recovery from the previous injury.

    That said, Murray is made of glass. :lmao:

    Blabbity Blah. I said it during the draft...yadda yadda.....


    Seriously, just stop. He was not always injured in college. Please take yourself to google and see how many games Murray missed in college.

    BTW: Spoiler alert.... it was (5) in 4 years.

    Largely a myth. Try "totally." If people stopped and realized how *****' stupid that sounds, they would slap themselves in the face in shame. Some people will just hear any media-generated crapola and buy it hook, line and sinker. SHEEP!!

    See my post on page 1, I included only regular season games (2). He missed the 2007 Conference Championship game, and was injured on the opening play of 2008 Big 12 Champ Game. Plus he missed the BCS games in each season 2007 and 2008.

    Total of 5 regular season and post season games. Is that right?

    ALWAYS?...so overblown. He is an awesome running back, best since ES, if he had a descent line to run behind he would be unstoppable!

    Oh, he's got a "descent" line alright -- they're descending from mediocre all the way down to piss poor.

    Maybe the team is saving him from coming back to soon?

    IMO, perhaps the team is thinking that with some (hopefully) games coming up that the Cowboys SHOULD win, that if they do and can make it to the dance, that is where Demarco will be needed, big time.

    Anyways, you could probably put Emmitt in his prime behind this oline and he would get as many yards as Felix does now!!
