DeMarco Murray Injury: Cowboys running back suffers broken hand

The Eagles may have caught a break.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

According to reports out of Dallas, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray suffered a broken bone in his hand during the team's 38-27 victory over the Eagles on Sunday night. Murray is scheduled to have surgery on the bone on Monday. He has NOT been ruled out for the Cowboys' Week 16 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

It would potentially be good news for the Eagles if Murray can't play. Philadelphia's playoff hopes will remain alive if Dallas loses to the Colts on Sunday. Murray, who leads the NFL in rushing yards, is clearly a big part of the Cowboys offense. The Colts are currently 1.5 point underdogs to the Cowboys.

The 9-5 Eagles trail the 10-4 Cowboys with two games to go. The Eagles can still win the NFC East if the Cowboys lose at least one more game and the Birds win out. Philadelphia may have caught a lucky break here.
