DeMarco Murray has lead the league in rushing for much of the season, and enters Week 16 with 1,687 yards. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is the next closest rusher, 409 yards behind with 1,278. Murray had surgery on Monday to repair a broken bone in his hand, but returned to practice on Wednesday. His status for Sunday's game against the Colts has yet to be determined, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that it's "conceivable" he could play.
