Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray, DE Demarcus Ware very unlikely for Week 7


Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray, DE Demarcus Ware very unlikely for Week 7

The Cowboys will probably be without their best rushers on both sides of the ball Sunday against the Eagles. According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, running back DeMarco Murray @DeMarcoMurray "believes there is a chance he plays this weekend," despite the sprained MCL in his left knee.
"Depends how he feels Friday," Glazer adds.
Defensive end Demarcus Ware @DeMarcusWare has a quad strain. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Ware will be out 3-4 weeks with the injury, but Glazer disputes that, stating Ware might miss just a week or two.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Cowboys are so banged up along their defensive front, and although they held their own last night versus the Redskins, they present a good matchup for the Eagles and their likely starting quarterback in Week 7, Nick Foles.
I don't care if Murray thinks he can play this weekend. As we've seen a gazillion times, athletes are extremely optimistic about their own health and ability and always want to play. Backup running back Lance Dunbar is out with a hamstring injury, so go pick up rookie Joseph Randle @JRAN_1. He is not an impressive runner, but he got 13 touches after Murray left last night's game and could see 15-20 touches against the Eagles' soft defense
