Murray active, Hilton out as Cowboys face Colts

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray is active for Dallas despite a broken left hand, and Indianapolis receiver T.Y. Hilton is out with a hamstring injury.

Murray got limited work in practice with a pad protecting the bone above his left ring finger. The Cowboys can end a four-year playoff drought with a win Sunday.

Dallas will be without right tackle Doug Free because of left foot and ankle injuries. Rookie guard Zack Martin (ankle) is active despite missing practice all week.

Hilton was listed as questionable, but the Colts took the cautious approach with a playoff spot secure and long odds to get a first-round bye. They are taking a similar approach by sitting right tackle Gosder Cherilus (groin).
