IRVING, Texas -- With two fumbles in his first two games, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is returning to the ball-carrying style he used his first three seasons when he lost just three fumbles. Murray’s fumbles against the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans came when he held the ball with his left hand. He said he will go back to holding the football primarily in his right hand. “I worked on it throughout the offseason," Murray said of using both hands as a ball carrier.
IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has minimal concern about the sore right shoulder that caused him to be a limited participant in Thursday’s practice. “It’s a little bit sore, but nothing that’s going to keep me out,” Bryant said. “I’m going to be ready to roll on Sunday.” Bryant injured the shoulder during the first quarter of Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans. He missed the next series but had eight of his team-high 10 receptions after returning.
IRVING, Texas -- Unable to practice Wednesday with tightness in his back, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo took every snap in practice Thursday and is set to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Romo said he felt good after practice and said the day off gave him time to build more strength as he continues to return to form from back surgery. He said his practice schedule going forward would be dependent on how he feels. "It was just to try something new," passing game coordinator Scott Linehan said.
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys continue to play linebacker roulette. It appears that the starting trio will be Bruce Carter, Anthony Hitchens and Kyle Wilber when the wheel stops spinning this week. Middle linebacker Rolando McClain has not been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams, but his status is in doubt due to a groin injury that has prevented him from practicing the last two days. Weakside linebacker Justin Durant has not practiced since suffering a groin strain in the season opener that is likely to sideline him at least two more games.
