Coming off a franchise-record 253 rushing yards against St. Louis, the Cowboys are not ready to declare DeMarco Murray a starter for Sunday’s game at Philadelphia according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com.
“We haven’t even had those discussions yet,” coach Jason Garrett said, “but he’s certainly earned the opportunity to get the ball a lot. There’s no question about that.”
While the coaching staff has not talked about it yet, there certainly are factors that favor Murray’s placement in the starting lineup against the Eagles. Felix Jones will miss his second straight game with a high left ankle sprain, according to a source, and Tashard Choice has a shoulder injury.
Jones suffered the injury on Oct. 16 at New England and remains in a protective boot. Cornerback Orlando Scandrick had the same injury and missed three games.
