Draft Scout DeMarco Murray News
10/29/14 - RB DeMarco Murray has already set an NFL record with eight straight 100-yard games to open the season. He is on pace to surpass Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record of 2,105, set in 1984.
And he is on pace to eclipse Chris Johnson's single-season record for total yards from scrimmage.
But Murray has five fumbles this season and needs to eradicate that nasty habit from his game before 2014 becomes a nightmare for him and the Cowboys. The sad part is many of the fumbles came when Murray is fighting for extra yardage after already securing a first down.
"He's has to go down; it's simple as that," coach Jason Garrett said. "He understands that. He carries the ball a lot. That's the conclusion of a ton of his running plays and it should have been last night. We emphasize that. Understanding where he is in the play and getting down, I think is important for him and he does that a lot. He makes a heck of a play, we have a (big) gain and we're down to the 5-yard line and the ball comes out. Obviously that can't happen."
10/27/14 - RB DeMarco Murray extended his NFL record with his eighth consecutive 100-yard rushing game to open a season. The NFL's rushing leader ran for 141 yards on 19 carries, which also put him over 1,000 yards on the season for the second time in his career. Murray also caught four passes for 80 yards.
10/19/14 - RB DeMarco Murray set the NFL record for consecutive 100-yard rushing games to open a season with seven. He had 128 yards against the Giants on 28 carries. Murray held the previous record of six games with Hall-of-Fame legend Jim Brown.
10/16/14 - RB DeMarco Murray returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a stomach virus. He will play against the Giants and resume his chase of the NFL single-season rushing record. With 785 yards on 159 carries through six games, Murray is on pace to shatter the NFL single-season records for yards and carries.
"I'm just focusing on the team. I'm focusing on the team. I think offensively we're doing well," Murray said. "The offensive line is blocking well. The tight ends, receivers down field. I think everybody is playing well for the most part, but we've got to continue to make sure we keep it up."
10/15/14 - RB DeMarco Murray missed practice Wednesday because of an illness but he should be good to go on Thursday.
