DeMarco Murray practices two days after hand surgery
Wednesday December 17th, 2014

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray practiced on Wednesday, two days after he had surgery for a broken bone in his hand, according to USA Today

Murray broke the fourth metacarpal in his left hand during the fourth quarter of last Sunday's win over the Eagles and underwent surgery on Monday. 

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that it's "conceivable" that Murray could be able to play in Sunday's game against the Colts

BANKS: Johnny Manziel gave critics plenty of fodder

On Wednesday, head coach Jason Garrett said Dallas needs to know whether Murray has the ability to carry the ball to determine if he can play. Murray wore a cast on his left arm at practice and was allowed to catch a few passes during individual drills, according to USA Today

Murray has rushed for 1,687 yards this season and leads the NFL in carries and rushing touchdowns.

The Cowboys (10-4) host Indianapolis (10-4) on Sunday.
