Healthy Murray clear leader of Cowboys' run game
The Associated Press
IRVING, Texas (AP) After DeMarco Murray fumbled his first carry of the season, the Dallas Cowboys sure didn't stop giving him the ball.
They didn't even hand off to another running back.
Now that Murray has been mostly healthy for almost two years, the bruising back rules the running game for the Cowboys.
The fourth-year player who set a franchise record with 253 yards rushing the first time he was the featured back as a rookie in 2011 is now piling up the starts without an injury getting in the way.
Murray bounced back from his fumble to finish with 118 yards and a touchdown against San Francisco. Now he goes for his ninth career 100-yard game Sunday at Tennessee.
