Cowboys' Murray active against Colts

Irving, TX ( - Dallas Cowboys running back and the NFL's leading rusher DeMarco Murray is active for today's game against the Indianapolis Colts, although his playing time may be limited due to a broken hand.

Murray underwent surgery Monday on his fractured left hand. The 26-year-old was hurt late in Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He ran for 81 yards with two touchdowns in the 38-27 victory, which lifted Dallas into first place in the NFC East.

The Cowboys can lock up the division title with a victory today.

Murray has 1,687 yards on the ground and also leads the league with 11 rushing touchdowns. He could break Emmitt Smith's mark of 1,773 rushing yards (1995) for the most in a single season in Cowboys history.

In addition, right tackle Doug Free (ankle) is inactive for today's game.
