DeMarco Murray rehab on schedule
Murray wouldn't discuss the specifics of his rehab only to say things are going well. He's not expect to run for six weeks but should be on time for the start of the offseason program that begins in the spring.
"Yeah, I’m doing fine just going along with what we planned," Murray said. "It's looking good."
Murray finished his rookie season rushing for 897 yards on 164 carries. He scored just two touchdowns, but Murray took over the starting job for an injured Felix Jones at midseason.
Murray rushed for a franchise-high 253 yards vs. St. Louis on Oct. 23 and over a four-game span, rushed for 601 yards, the most in franchise history.
"Had some success and there’s still a lot of things I need to learn and do," Murray said. "With coach[Jason] Garrett and [running backs coach Skip] Peete coaching me the way that they had I can definitely gain more knowledge and get better."
The Cowboys have some young talented players on offense to compliment Murray in wide receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin to go along with veteran tight end Jason Witten and backup running back Felix Jones.
"We had a lot of playmakers and a lot of speed and we have a lot of great group of older guys who led this team in the right direction," Murray said. "But we still have a lot of work to do and have to make plays down the stretch and just continue to get better."
