The wait is over for running back DeMarco Murray and the Dallas Cowboys.
The third-round draft pick made his practice debut Tuesday, coming back for the first time since straining a hamstring during the lockout.
The Cowboys also welcomed back fellow running back Tashard Choice (calf), wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) and linebacker Keith Brooking.
Murray is the third-string back behind starter Felix Jones and Choice, but the rookie figures to play a significant role in the offense.
Coach Jason Garrett says he thinks Murray can be an every-down back, catch out of the backfield, protect the quarterback and return kicks.
