Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones is confident that running back DeMarco Murray will be on the field for the season ending game against the Redskins, but admitted on Sirius XM Radio that it was an “uphill battle” for him to be ready for this weekend’s game against the Colts.
The Cowboys are not overly optimistic about the chances of Murray playing after he broken his hand in Sunday’s win over the Eagles. That would place Joseph Randle in line to start the home game.

With Sunday’s game being a potential shutout the possibility of Randle putting up a big game are looking good.
Murray was held under 100 yards for just the third time on the season in Sunday’s game but he did find the endzone twice.
