08:29 AM ET 12.01 | The return of Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray to the starting lineup looks as if it will finally happen. Murray has missed the past six games with a sprained left foot, and despite being limited in practice all week, indications are he will play Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles."It looks like that, we'll see how well he responds (Friday)," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said. "The key day was (Thursday), he came back better than (Wednesday), which was his first day out and usually that's a leveling off or setback day. We'll see how he does in the next couple of days. It looks like we'll have him."

Without an OL it really doesn't matter much.

Against the Iggles it really doesn't matter much either. The could start Bill Murray.

I don't care.

Nice to see him back and he will def get that extra yard or two that Felix cant but, in the end...until we fix the line, we are going no where.

Not until Groundhog Day, but after that he can play every day.

Typical Jerry move. The team is going nowhere fast - but yeah, bring back Murray, win a few late season games - and get a mid round draft pick. Rinse, lather, repeat. Next year, 8-8. The year after 9-7. The year after that 7-9.

But yeah, Jason Garrett is a genius. I love how he's fixed our penalty problems...

Glad to see he's on the mend, but if he's not 100% why risk a further setback.

This is all 100% correct. The Cowboys are stuck wallowing in Jerry Jones' mediocrity. And will be forever, as they do this same .500 dance year in and year out. I'm 57 years old and in bad health. I doubt I will live long enough to see this franchise ever lift itself out of the muck and return to even a semblance of what it used to be. Oh well....

JG's the only coach that is still on the roster from when those problems began. The only thing that has changed (Instead of it being, Flozell, 98 percent of the time) is that now it spreads across both lines. Hmmm...

The Cowboys fans now have a Owner Jerry, GM Jerry,and now have a Dr. Jerry, what else does a Cowboy fan need.
