Jerry Jones hopeful of DeMarco Murray return

By Todd Archer

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It’s safe to say the Cowboys’ running game misses DeMarco Murray.

PODCAST
Cowboys owners Jerry Jones says the team made the kind of mistakes that lose ballgames and that the team is running out of opportunities to win the division.

The 227-yard effort against Baltimore on Oct. 14 was the anomaly. In the last two games against Carolina and the New York Giants, the Cowboys have rushed for 104 yards on 48 carries.

Felix Jones had 13 carries for 19 yards and had a crucial fumble.

Murray missed his second straight game with a sprained foot. He spent Sunday on the sideline, but there is hope he could return next week against Atlanta.

“I talked to him a little before the game and I am encouraged that he has a chance to be back,” owner and general manager Jerry Jones said.
