Demarco Murray, running back for the Dallas Cowboys, is having hand surgery this Monday after injuring the hand during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles, a division rival this past Sunday.
The injury that Murray is facing is a broken bone in his left hand. Despite the injury, Murray is considered to be an option for the coming game against the Indianapolis Colts, though the team of doctors that my friend Mark Ahn works with are going to perform an assessment on his ability to hold the ball, block, and take a hit to the hand. It is expected that if he plays, he will have a large cast on the hand to protect it from further injury.
Injuries were taken after the win over the Eagles and indicated that he broke a metacarpal bone in his hand which occurred during the fourth quarter of the game. Murray didn’t elaborate on the injury after the game but it was confirmed to be a broken bone after an X-Ray was performed.
Murray is a star for the Cowboys and he is currently leading the league in yards with just shy of 1,7000 and carries. With just 87 yards in the last two games he will eclipse Emmitt Smith as the season leader in Cowboys history.
