    Among other things he discussed in the wake of Thursday's disappointing Thanksgiving Day loss, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he didn't know when or if injured running back DeMarco Murray might be able to return to action. Murray has missed six straight games since spraining his foot in Week 6 in Baltimore, and the Dallas running game has struggled for consistency in his absence. Jones said he can't be sure Murray will be ready for next Sunday's game against the Eagles.
    "We can't get a prognosis that another week's rest will do anything"” Jones said after Thursday's 38-31 loss. "It's all depending on how he pushes off."

    Murray suffered the injury Oct. 14 at Baltimore and has been on the practice field only three times since, and that was just for rehab. He said prior to the Cleveland game there would be a chance he would see action soon, but didn't.

    The hope is that he will return Dec. 2 against Philadelphia, but coach Jason Garrett made reference to Murray’s "slow progress" Wednesday.

    My guess is that he is about three weeks away from being able to play. Will he play at that time? It probably depends on if the team is in the playoff hunt. If not in the playoff hunt, he will probably not see the field for the rest of the year.

    I don't think it's that. I think the team is in the business of sweetening injury reports for the fans to keep them hoping.

    Ok were not going to the playoffs.

    If they don't plan on keeping jones, we need to see what Dunbar and Tanner can do. All without getting Romo killed on protection.

    If their is nothing there get a dynamic running back in the draft that has shown signs of durability.

    Saying that, I believe that OL and DL are higher draft needs. Plus its been proven that RB can be found all over the draft board and as FA.
