07:56 PM ET 10.15 | The Cowboys weren't immune to an injury riddled game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. While the Ravens lost massive parts of their defense, the Cowboys lost a key part of their offense as running back DeMarco Murray is out indefinitely with ligament damage in his foot. The injury caused Murray to leave the loss on Sunday early, a game that saw the Cowboys explode in the run game. Luckily, it sounds like Murray won't need surgery to repair the damage in his foot. Rather the Cowboys are holding him out on a "week-to-week" basis. In Murray's absence, the Cowboys will turn to backup Felix Jones who also had to leave Sunday???s game after he began cramping and need intravenous fluids. The Cowboys are not expected to give a heavy work load to running backs Phillip Tanner or Lance Dunbar who came in after both Murray and Jones left and amassed a total of 42 yard on 10 carries.

I like the way Murray runs, but he's been seriously hurt both seasons he has played. You can't be a fragile back in the NFL. It's too easy to find a replacement.

Who is running the training staff? There is no excuse for a professional athlete to cramp up during a game. That is 99% preventable. Maybe if they were playing in Florida in September but not Maryland in October.
