The Dallas Cowboys will look to clinch their first NFC East title in five years as they host the playoff-bound Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
However, they will face an anxious wait over whether or not DeMarco Murray will be able to help them achieve it after the league’s leading rusher underwent surgery on Monday on his broken left hand.
Murray has 1,687 yards so far this season and he needs just 87 more to break the all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smith’s single-season franchise record.
The Cowboys (10-4) will be desperate to have him on the field as they look to build on the momentum of their win over divisional rivals the Philadelphia Eagles last weekend, and with Philly losing to Washington on Saturday, Dallas have the opportunity to clinch the division with a win.
Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle will likely split carries if Murray fails to recover in time, while Dallas also practiced without right tackle Doug Free and right guard Zack Martin on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the post-season is already secured for the Colts (10-4) who clinched the AFC South title by beating second-placed Houston 17-10 last Sunday for their fourth straight win.
The Colts now trail Denver and New England by one game and would need to win their final two and have one of them lose its last two in order to gain a bye.
However, while that is unlikely, they will continue to play competitive football until the end of the regular season and coach Chuck Pagano will be hopeful of having TY Hilton available despite a hamstring injury.
Quarterback Andrew Luck leads the NFL with 4,492 yards and 38 touchdowns entering his first match-up with the Cowboys, and the hosts are 3-4 at home overall this season and are looking to avoid a first four-game slide at the AT&T since 2010.
