Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show Friday that it "looks like" Murray will play, according to The Associated Press. That supports a full week's worth of buzz that Murray likely will suit up. He practiced on a limited basis this week, and local reports indicated he should be ready to go.

Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas also noted that Murray met with NBC Sports for their production meeting, something an injured player never would do. Murray officially is listed as questionable, but it would be shocking if he didn't play.

The Cowboys topped 65 rushing yards as a team only once since Murray was injured, going 2-3 over that time.
