Report: Cowboys RB Murray suffers ligament damage in foot

The Cowboys running game found plenty of success in their narrow loss to the Ravens on Sunday, and DeMarco Murray’s 93 yards on 14 carries were  a big reason for that. But Murray left the game with a foot injury, and now, ESPN Dallas is reporting that Murray suffered ligament damage.

The good news, according to Todd Archer, is that it’s not a Lisfranc injury that would cause him to miss the rest of the season (you can read more about those Lisfranc injuries, via CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman).

The X-rays taken after the game were negative, but the Cowboys are still waiting to hear Monday’s MRI results.

Without Murray -- who, according to beat writer Clarence Hill, won’t play this Sunday -- the team will give its No. 1 running back spot to Felix Jones, who recorded 92 yards on 18 carries vs. Baltimore. If Jones isn’t healthy -- he had to leave Sunday’s game with cramps -- Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner would get the ball.
