IRVING, Texas DeMarco Murray didn't practice Wednesday and its uncertain if hell play Sunday night in Atlanta. The second-year running back, who has missed the last two games with a sprained left foot, hasnt practiced since Oct. 12. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday that the team is being cautious, not wanting Murray to return too soon and suffer further injury. "On some of these injuries, if you push them, all you do is set them back," Jones said during his weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM. "You might get them out there for 10 plays and then he gets out there and hes looking down and it's just not quite holding up. So, you really got to make sure, especially at these skilled spots running back or receiver or corner that theyre really ready to go. Weve had DeMarco in a boot for two weeks, on crutches. Now he's getting out of that. "But hes a tough guy and no one wants to be out there more than him. But we just cant afford to put him out there if hes not going to be 110 (percent)." Starting in Murrays place has been Felix Jones, a player that Stephen Jones said is "certainly not 100 percent." Since becoming the Cowboys featured back last season, Murray has carried 18 or more times in seven games. The Cowboys are 7-0 in those contests. "His only issue so far has just been staying healthy," Stephen Jones said. Dallas ranks 30th in the NFL in rushing and is averaging only 3.6 yards per attempt this season. In Sundays 29-24 loss to the New York Giants, the Cowboys ran 17 times for 19 yards. Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
