NFL via Getty Images(IRVING, Texas) — Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray says he will “probably” make the decision whether he plays Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
Murray, who had surgery Monday night on his broken left hand, was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday. He’s been wearing a hard plastic shell on top of his glove for protection.
“I’m a very competitive person and I want to help this team out as much I can, so whatever that portrays me doing Sunday, then we’ll see,” Murray said. “But I’ve had two good days, and we’ll see how it goes.”
The Cowboys (10-4) currently lead the NFC East by a game over the Philadelphia Eagles (9-5).
Murray has rushed for an NFL best 1,687 yards this season. His absence would be felt even more in Dallas’ game Sunday against the Colts, which has allowed the 16th most rushing yards per game in the NFL.
