Coach confident DeMarco Murray will fix fumbling issue
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is off to a great start in 2014. He's rushed for more than 100 yards and has a rushing touchdown in each of the first three games.

However, it hasn't been all positives for Murray, who has also lost a fumble in each game this season.

"It’s very disappointing," Murray said of his fumbling issues, per ESPN. "I’m very disappointed in letting that one go. I’ve got to get it fixed and I will get it fixed."

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has the utmost confidence in Murray correcting his fumbling problems.

"We’re going to continue to give him the ball and he’s got to get it right," Garrett said. "He’s going to get it right."

DeMarco Murray rushes for 100 yards, scores in Week 3
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray racked up 100 rushing yards on 24 carries and scored a touchdown while also gaining 31 yards on four receptions in his team's 34-31 victory over the Rams in Week 3.

Murray entered the game with an impressive resume against the Rams, piling up 428 rushing yards and two TDs in just two career games. He delivered another 100-yard performance against St. Louis Sunday, also delivering his third straight 100-yard game and third straight game with a touchdown to open the season. Continuing the trend, Murray also lost a fumble for the third straight game, though the Rams weren't able to make anything out of the turnover.

Murray is up to a league-best 385 rushing yards to go with 62 yards on eight receptions and three rushing touchdowns. He'll try to keep rolling when the Cowboys face the Saints in Dallas next week.

DeMarco Murray changing his carrying style
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray will carry primarily with his right hand moving forward, according to ESPN.

Murray worked on carrying the ball with both hands during the offseason, but has had issues with fumbles this year. Both of his fumbles have come with the ball in his left hand. Murray said he's not willing to fully give up on using both hands to carry the ball, but it will likely be on the back-burner for now. "Not saying I won’t do it again but I’m just more comfortable and stronger, I think, in my right (hand)," Murray said.

DeMarco Murray on pace for 408 carries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has carried the ball 51 times, the most for any two-game span in his career, reports ESPN.com. He's on pace for 408 carries after never having run more than 217 times in a season.

"We feel like DeMarco is a durable football player who can take the pounding of being the primary running back for the Cowboys, so we're going to give him opportunities to do that," coach Jason Garrett said. "He seems to relish in getting the work, so that's a good thing. He seems to get better as the game goes on with more carries, and that's what all the good backs that I've ever been around have."

Murray has yet to play a full season, missing 11 games over his first three years. The NFL record for carries is 416, set by Larry Johnson in 2006 with the Chiefs.

Cowboys still want to sign DeMarco Murray to long-term deal
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones said in July the team didn't have any plans to carry on in-season contract negotiations with running back DeMarco Murray.

However, with Murray's fast start to the season, the Cowboys might be willing to change their stance, per The Dallas Morning News.

"We certainly wouldn’t be against that," Jones said Monday on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. "Long term, we’ve told DeMarco that we’d love to have him here. At the end of the day, it’s no different than Dez [Bryant], we want to keep our good players and DeMarco is one of them. I think I said something to that effect in camp. He’s a guy that we would like to see stay here long term. He’s certainly only increased our desire to have him stay."
