DeMarco Murray Watch - Broken Hand

The Dallas Cowboys could possibly face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16 of NFL without RB DeMarco Murray.  Murray, who leads the NFL with 1687 rushing yards, suffered a broken hand on Sunday Night Football, in a win over Philadelphia Eagles and will require surgery!  Should he miss any time, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would split carries for the Cowboys.  They have combined for just 60 carries on the season.  Dunbar would see action on passing downs.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray broke a bone in his hand and will have surgery on Monday, according to COO Stephen Jones. - DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN)

Murray has been one of the best RBs in the Fantasy Football Playoffs

With Fantasy Football Championships coming up, this is terrible news! The Colts run defense has allowed the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans RBs to run for over 100 yards on them in back to back weeks. Arian Foster gained 99 yards last week while Alfred Blue added 26.  The week before both Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West gained 54 yards. Crowell rushed for a TD in that one too. 

However, since allowing Jonas Gray to score 4 TDs and gain 201 yards, the Colts defense has limited opposing RBs to just Crowell's TD and a Roy Helu receiving TD. The Jaguars backs failed to score on them and Denard Robinson led the team with 72 total yards.
