Going into Week Ten of the NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys have limped their way to a 5-4 record and stand atop the worst division in football. Arguably, as one of the most talented teams in the league, Dallas should be better than their poor record reflects. But injuries and several underperforming players have hurt this team this season. Here are my 10 most disappointing Dallas Cowboys players so far:
10. Running Back DeMarco Murray
This one simply comes down to injury. Three straight years of injury to be exact. Without them, Murray probably would be considered one of the better backs in the NFL. Despite being handcuffed this year by offensive coordinator Bill Callahan’s unbalanced playcalling, Murray was a league leader in rushing before injuring his knee in Week Six against the Washington Redskins. The MCL sprain forced Murray to watch from the sidelines for two games and limited his participation in this Sunday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings. If Murray can stay healthy the rest of the season, it would go a long way to getting him off this list. But based on his history, Murray doesn’t have the durability to be an every down back in the NFL.
