According to NFL analysys Adam Schefter, a source confirmed that the decision on whether or not DeMarco Murray (hand) will play Sunday will be up to him, in which case he will definitely opt to play.
If it's up to Murray and Murray says he'll play, then so be it. The Cowboys are taking a bit of a risk here, but it would also be silly to think that Murray would jeopardize his status for a potential playoff run. However, while he says he can play and the Cowboys seem to be willing to take him at his word, fantasy owners are going to have to be cautious here. While he could put up strong numbers against the Colts' 23rd-ranked run defense, there's also the chance that he realizes early in the game that his hand isn't ready and he is forced to leave. He's earned the must-start status this season, but keep your expectations in check.
