It looks as though the Dallas Cowboys' top running back will be returning to action just in the nick of time as Dallas begins a quest to salvage the 2012 season. 

All signs point to DeMarco Murray returning to the lineup for Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

Murray has missed the last six games due to a foot injury, and the Cowboys have rushed for 100 yards as a team only once in that span (101 in their last meeting with the Eagles). His return should make things a lot easier on the rest of the offense, which has been inconsistent and sloppy for the majority of the season.
