Murray (hand) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Despite fitting in some individual drills, Murray didn't fit in enough activity to be considered a limited participant. The "will he or won't he" play Sunday against the Colts will likely remain a question throughout the week, but if he does suit up, he'll be donning a padded glove on his left hand to protect the broken bone.

Murray (hand) was on the field for Wednesday's practice and catching passes, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
It was an unpadded practice, but this is still an encouraging sign for Murray's Week 16 availability. The Cowboys likely won't make an official decision until game day, however.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday he thinks it's possible Murray (hand) will play Sunday against the Colts, NFL.com reports.
"I'm good. I'm great," Murray said Tuesday, a day after undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his hand. The Cowboys are reportedly exploring a few options that would allow Murray to play in Week 16, including a glove that would feature some added protective material, but his status is still very much uncertain. Jones also expressed confidence that the combination of Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would be able to get the job done if Murray is unable to go.

Though Murray, who will undergo surgery Monday on a broken bone in his hand, has not yet been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones acknowledged the running back's status for that contest is cloudy, the Dallas Morning News reports. "It's probably a tough expectation to think that [DeMarco Murray] can [play Sunday], but we'll see," Jones noted Monday.
If Murray is out or limited Sunday, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would be in line to handle added work in the team's Week 16 backfield, with Randle -- who has carried 34 times for 237 yards to date -- probably representing the higher-percentage fantasy dart.

Murray had 31 carries for 81 yards and two touchdowns, adding one receptions for three yards one target, in Sunday's 38-27 win over the Eagles.
The Eagles did an excellent job against the run, often bottling Murray up behind the line of scrimmage. There really wasn't much more that the NFL's leading rusher could have done, as Philadelphia was determined to make the Cowboys win it through the air. While he fell shy of 100 rushing yards for just the third time this season, Murray salvaged a strong showing with a pair of short touchdowns. He draws a more favorable matchup in Week 16, as the Colts have been better at defending the pass than the run this season.

Murray carried 32 times for 179 yards and a touchdown, adding nine receptions for 49 yards on 10 targets, in Thursday's 41-28 win over the Bears.
Murray set personal season-high marks for carries, rushing yards and receptions, logging a ridiculous 41 touches on the Cowboys' 62 offensive snaps. Per usual, he had plenty of holes to run through, and was also able to pick up more than what was blocked. He now has 320 carries for 1,606 rushing yards on the season, making him easily the NFL leader in both categories. Futhermore, his 53 receptions are good for third among all running backs, though he's mostly been limited to short gains through the air. Murray draws a tough Week 15 matchup in Philadelphia, two weeks after posting a 20-73-1 rushing line and 6-40-0 receiving line at home against the Eagles.

Murray had 24 carries for 121 yards and two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Giants.
Murray accounted for all of the Cowboys' carries, with the exception of a Tony Romo kneel-down that ended the game. Though he didn't score a touchdown, Murray comfortably reached 100 rushing yards for the 10th time in 11 contests, despite having a long gain of just 18 yards. The Cowboys will now face the Eagles on Thanksgiving, and while the Philadelphia run defense has mostly been solid, the Murray-dominated Dallas running game is a good bet to succeed in any matchup.
