Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is still sidelined from participating in the team’s offseason program as he battles a hamstring strain. It’s just the latest issue Murray has had to deal with that has kept him off the practice field.
Murray has missed nine games in his two seasons with the Cowboys including six games last season alone. Yet, Murray vows to be more durable in 2013. According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, fully intends to play in every game for the Cowboys this season.
“I am going to play all 16 (games) this year, and I’m excited. It’s going to be a great year for us,” Murray said.
Murray hasn’t struggled to produce when he’s been able to play. Murray averaged 5.5 yards per carry in his rookie season and still averaged 4.1 yards a carry last season. If he can put together a full season for Dallas, it should be a big boost for the Cowboys offense.
