Murray, Kosier Coming Along In Rehab Work

The Cowboys' offseason workout program won't begin until mid-April and players are essentially in charge of themselves at this point, but roughly 15 members of the team are still regulars in the Valley Ranch training room, receiving treatments from the team's medical staff.

Most notable among the ongoing rehabs is the work being done by running back DeMarco Murray, whose season was ended in Week 14 when he broke his ankle against the Giants. Murray is walking with ease and has been spotted lifting weights at the team facility, but has yet to begin running and cutting.

Still, coach Jason Garrett says his return from the injury is on schedule.

"He's getting there," Garrett said. "At every turn, the rehab has gone well for him, all positive marks. And really it's a tribute to our training staff, but also to his approach. He's a guy who has been there every day doing what he's supposed to do, and his body is responding well."

The coach said he is "hopeful" Murray will be 100 percent in time for on-field practices this offseason.

Among the other players still working back from injury is starting right guard Kyle Kosier, who suffered a torn MCL in the season finale. The injury did not require surgery, but his rehab is ongoing.

"It seems like Kosier is doing well coming back off of his injury," Garrett said. "He's around our facility a lot, trying to get himself rehabbed and get himself better, so he seems to be coming along well."
