DeMarco Murray "Doing Well" In Rehab; Hopes To Participate In Offseason Workouts

It's being reported that Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray's rehab is going well and he and team hope that he'll be ready in time to participate in offseason workouts.

Running back DeMarco Murray, the Dallas Cowboys' third-round pick from the 2011 draft, made a lot of fantasy owners' seasons when he took over the starting running back role after Felix Jones was injured by running for 253 yards and a touchdown in Week 7, leading the Cowboys to a 34-7 win over the St. Louis Rams. He was the NFL's main attraction before Tim Tebow won a few games in a row. Unfortunately, he suffered an ankle injury in Week 14 against the Giants and never made it back on the field.

It turned out that Murray fractured his ankle, but according to ESPN's Cecil Lammey, he's doing well in rahab and the team hopes he's able to participate in offseason workouts.

This is good news for the Cowboys as Murray has the potential to be the team's No. 1 back for the next few seasons. With the duo of Murray and Jones in the backfield, the Cowboys could be in great shape when it comes to the running game. This is also good news for fantasy owners that have Murray on their radar as well.
