The Dallas Cowboys fear running back DeMarco Murray suffered ligament damage in his left foot in Sunday’s 31-29 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, but the team believes it is not a season-ending Lisfranc injury, reports ESPN.com.

DallasCowboys.com confirms that a MRI showed no broken bones, but there is some ligament damage in the foot. Murray’s status for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers is unknown.

Murray rushed 14 times for 93 yards before leaving the game in the third quarter with was diagnosed as a sprained left foot.  Backups Felix Jones and Phillip Tanner split the carries after Murray was injured and the Cowboys finished with 227 yards rushing.

Murray was not wearing a walking boot after he was injured and says he could have continued to play, but the coaches did not want to risk any long-term damage to the foot.
