Officially listed as questionable, unofficially Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is determined to play on Sunday against the Colts.
Murray, per a source with knowledge of the situation, declared even before having surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand on Monday that he will play in Week 16. At this point, it’s believed to be primarily a matter of pain tolerance and management.
Sure, there’s risk. But Murray is willing to accept it — and he wants to prove that he can play in every game of an NFL regular season for the first time in his career.
He’s also chasing a new contract and 2,000 yards rushing. So the stakes are high and Murray fully intends to play.
