Dallas RB Murray left in the first quarter with a lower leg injury. (US PRESSWIRE)

Posted by Ryan Wilson

UPDATE II, 10:30 p.m. ET: Murray has a fractured ankle, according to multiple reports (including CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco), and is likely done for the 2011 season.
  
UPDATE, 9:24 p.m. ET:
Murray is getting X-rays on his right ankle and his return is questionable.


The Cowboys headed into Sunday night's game with two active running backs: DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones. Late in the first quarter, Dallas was down to one after Murray had to be helped from the field after a lower leg injury.

With 5:11 left in the quarter, Murray took a pass from Tony Romo and was tackled by Giants linebacker Dave Tollefson. Replays appeared to show Murray twisting his ankle under Tollefson's body as they went to the turf. He laid on the field for several minutes before two Cowboys assistants helped him to the sidelines.

There is no official word on Murray's status, although we suspect he could be done for the evening. For now, Jones is Dallas' only active running back, to go along with two fullbacks. Jones' got his first carry after Murray made his way to the bench and it was good for 26 yards, down to the Giants 12. A play later, Romo found John Phillips for a 12-yard score. At the start of the second quarter, the Cowboys lead, 7-5.

So how is Jason Grett feeling right now? he knows how haley must feel losing important cogs in the wheel but i hate to say;
"knock on the door"
Jason G answers -how can i help you
Courier hands Garret a package... sorry about the season coach the cowgirls looked great on paper before the season started or at least that what jerry told us all!
Garret opens package finds a note and empty box..
note says... thanks for nothing Jason, take this box clean out your desk, you are a sorry example of what a coach shouldnt be!i need all your sh&T out of your locker tommorrow so Jeff Fischer can take over(i need to sell tickets this offseason and need a coach in place)
garret with stupid look on his face... i cant believe it we have had a great season, just because we blew a couple games against Det and NY and wont make the playoffs why would you fire me???????

Little Red will still be standing there in bewilderment just like he does on the sidelines - he learned well from Wade.. same stupid look!

Go  Boys!!!!!!!!

Damn, on the replays it didn't look bad at all. Really sucks for him, it would have been awesome to see him hit 1,000+ yards
Couldn't agree more - kid has a bright future.

The good news is all four of my fantasy teams made the playoffs (despite 67:1 odds against it).  The bad news is the two teams that lead their leagues in scoring both had D.Murray.
