"I have seen no signs of overuse," coach Jason Garrett told the paper. "I don't think we want to limit his carries. He's certainly the bell-cow runner for us and we want to get him the ball as a runner and as a receiver as much as we can."
Dallas visits the Giants on Sunday night.
"I’m ready," Murray said, per ESPN. "Like I’ve said before, whatever they ask me to do I’m going to do it times 10. It’s going to be an exciting next couple of weeks for us."
Murray never had more than 217 carries or 1,121 rushing yards prior to 2014. In fact, he's never played in 16 games during the regular season.
"Obviously we’re running the ball well, and I think we’re throwing it well, too," Murray said. "So in this part of the year, it’s cold, the weather, so I think running is going to be a little bit more of a factor for us, which is good. We’ve got a strong offensive line. We’ve got some backs who can run and also got a lot of guys on the edge that can go up and get the ball. So it’s going to be huge for us."
The march to 2,000 yards for the season continued Sunday beyond the big pond for
Murray rushed for 100 yards - all in the first three quarters - on 19 carries and added six receptions for 31 yards to help bury Jacksonville in London. He began the game with a 23-yard run and a 21-yard jaunt put him at the century mark. Murray was kept out of the end zone for the second straight game, but he has 1,233 yards for the season and is on pace for 1,973.
He will not move any closer next week - Dallas doesn't play.
Murray, however, takes those numbers with many grains of salt. "I've heard about it a few times," he told the Dallas News. "I don't know the truth behind it or the meaning behind it, but I think we win when we play well and everyone's doing their job."
He is on pace to become just the eighth player in NFL history to exceed 2,000 yards rushing.
Murray has run for 1,133 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging 5.0 yards per carry. He has, however, lost five fumbles.
