After taking part in limited practice all week, the feeling is that Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray will play today versus the Lions. Several media outlets have reported that he is expected to go, but Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com has a different look on things. He said on Twitter this morning that he considers Murray "very doubtful" to play. If Murray is inactive, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would likely split the carries.
Interesting. For now, all I can say is that we will know Murray's status for sure in about 30 minutes when the inactives report is released. If Murray plays, I think he's useable as an RB2. If he's out, well, it could be a tough guessing game as to which Cowboys RB will have the better game.
