As detailed in Football Outsiders Almanac 2013, Murray has had a litany of injuries going back to his college career at Oklahoma. Last season a sprained foot kept him out of six games. His health risk is very high, which does not help when the offensive line is such a work in progress. Dallas has not had a solid rushing attack in several years, which is partially why Tony Romo has thrown for 9,087 yards since 2011. When you have a budding superstar in Dez Bryant, a future Hall of Fame tight end in Jason Witten, Miles Austin, and some other weapons, why would you not keep throwing? Murray’s not a significant part of the Dallas offense.As a fan of the Cowboys, I know all the ups and downs with DeMarco Murray.
