    Published: Fri, Dec 19, 2014

    IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray attended practice for the third-straight day and team owner Jerry Jones said on his weekly radio show that Murray looks like he's on schedule to play Sunday against the Colts. Both Murray and offensive guard Zack Martin are listed as questionable. "Murray and Martin, I’m pretty positive about having the ability to play them and to get that decision,” Jones said Friday on KRLD/105.3 FM. “Both of those guys, you should be able to count on them." More in doubt is the status of right tackle Doug Free, who is doubtful with an ankle injury. Backup quarterback and former Oklahoma State standout Brandon Weeden missed Friday's practice for personal reasons.

Rudolph has appeared in only two games in his Cowboys career, but has done enough for BR to tab him as a player capable of an "out-of-nowhere" season.

  • OSU basketball: LeBryan Nash only Top 15 recruit from 2011 still in college

    Updated: Wed, Dec 17, 2014

    An ESPN analyst, once upon a time, said LeBryan Nash "may be the most physically gifted player" in the Class of 2011. And though that certainly reads silly with the benefit of hindsight -- New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis was, you know, also in the Class of 2011 -- the point is that Nash was highly regarded coming out of high school, so much so that 247 Sports ranked him as the No. 8 prospect in the entire nation. Now Nash is the only top-15 prospect from that class still in college. Everybody else is already a professional.
