Is DeMarco Murray Still the Cowboys Go-To Guy?

In 2011, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray ran for 897 yards in just 13 games, averaging 5.5 yards per carry. For a rookie these are some very impressive numbers. A fractured ankle, however cut Murray’s rookie season short. With such a devastating injury, many are skeptical of Murray’s ability to produce at the same level in 2012 as he did in 2011.

According to official Cowboys Minicamp reports, Murray is back at full health and has been doing very well in practices. One area where he’s shown particular promise is in the passing game. Josh Ellis of the Cowboys official website says “He’s caught a LOT of passes this summer.”

If Murray’s 2012 season is anything like last year’s, he will be one of the most exciting backs in the league, and will bring Dallas that much closer to the playoff run that has eluded them for so many years.
