Cowboys’ rookie running back DeMarco Murray joined the Ben & Skin show on KESN-FM Wednesday and discussed a number of topics according to the Dallas Morning News.
He was asked about Tony Romo and his demeanor in the huddle after he suffered a broken rib. Murray said, “He could barely breathe. We were just seeing him grunting, and when he was trying to talk, he was just kind of holding on. You could see it in his facial expressions that he was hurt.”
“He’s our leader on offense vocally, and he’s a guy that everybody looks to. Whether he’s up or down, that’s how our team is. … He fought his butt off for us and he wanted to play. I think coach Garrett tried to hold him out a little bit, but he fought and scratched to get back in there, and he led us to victory.”
