DeMarco Murray and Zack Martin are questionable, but owner Jerry Jones feels good about their availability for Sunday’s game against the Colts.
The Cowboys, though, list right tackle Doug Free (left ankle) as doubtful.
“Murray and Martin, I’m pretty positive about having the ability to play them and to getting that decision,” Jones said on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM. “Both of those guys, you should be able to count on them. Free’s a little bit different matter, and I’m a little skeptical we’re going to have Free, but let’s see what the few days bring. We may get some of Free, and that may be worth giving him an active roster spot.”
Murray, who had surgery on his left hand Monday, was limited in practice Friday. He also was limited Thursday after not participating Wednesday.

Although Martin didn’t practice all week, he was able to play through his ankle injury during last week’s game.
“I was encouraged I was able to finish the game and that gave me some hope, that I’d be good to go for this week,” Martin said.
Defensive tackle Josh Brent (calf/personal) and linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring) will not play Sunday.
Backup quarterback Brandon Weeden missed Friday’s practice for personal reasons.
The other five players on the injury report are probable.
