DeMarco Murray has broken bone in hand, will undergo surgery
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray suffered a broken bone in his hand during a win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and the injury will require surgery.
During an interview with 105.3 The Fan on Monday, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones revealed that Murray will undergo surgery immediately. The injury reportedly occurred late in the game on Sunday, though the exact play where it happened is unclear.
Surprisingly, Jones said Murray has not yet been ruled out for Week 16. I suppose doctors could design some sort of cast for Murray that would allow him to play while his hand heals, but you have to wonder about ball security if that is the case.
Murray has been by far the best running back in the NFL this season. He has already rushed for 1,687 yards and racked up over 2,000 yards from scrimmage. He has carried the ball an astonishing 351 times after carrying it just 217 times last season. Murray’s 11 rushing touchdowns are the most in the NFL.
