Currently sidelined with hamstring injury, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is confident he won't be sitting out at all this upcoming season. “I am going to play all 16 (games) this year, and I’m excited. It’s going to be a great year for us,” Murray said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He's missed a total of 9 games in two seasons, and the team went out and grabbed Joseph Randle out of Oklahoma State in the 5th round of this year's draft in the event the Murray gets sidelined again. But that's all a thing of the past, according to Murray, who perhaps feels his job may be jeopardy, and who's in danger of being tagged with the dreaded 'injury-prone' label. “That’s something I can’t control,” Murray added. “I can’t control if anything happens. All I can do is go out there, play hard, play fast, play physical. Once I’m out there, I don’t think there’s any question about anything. Receiver Dez Bryant has his back: “DeMarco, he’s going to be good,” Bryant said. “The thing about it is, we’re in OTAs and we don’t want to get him out there when he’s not ready and something comes up. We need him throughout the whole year. Not only for DeMarco but for every player, we don’t want to rush anybody. He’s a great player and he’s probably one of the biggest pieces to this puzzle. He’s doing fine.”
