Dallas Cowboys v Philadelphia Eagles

VALLEY RANCH — DeMarco Murray had surgery Monday to repair a broken bone in his left hand. And according to ESPN, the Cowboys are actually confident Murray will be able to play Sunday against the Colts.

“He’s as strong-willed and as determined an individual as I’ve ever been around,” Coach Garrett said Monday before the surgery. “And if anybody has a chance to come back, he does.”

Murray broke his hand Sunday in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 38-27 win against the Eagles.

The running back is currently the NFL's leading rusher with 1,687 yards. He's had 351 carries through 14 games -- the most in franchise history.

That all adds up to -- we need you, Murray.

If he can't play Sunday, Joseph Randle will most likely have to step up.
