IRVING, Texas (AP) - DeMarco Murray says it was frustrating to get benched after a fumble early in a preseason game against Cincinnati.
The Dallas Cowboys running back didn't pout, though. And he definitely got the message in a 24-18 victory against the Bengals on Saturday.
Murray had 45 rushing yards and a 7-yard scoring catch in one drive after sitting three straight series. He had to watch for a quarter and a half because he fumbled inside the Dallas 10 the second time he touched the ball. Teammate Jermey Parnell recovered.
Murray said Monday it was ``definitely'' a good message from coach Jason Garrett, who says fumbles in the running game ``can't happen.''
The starters aren't likely to play Thursday night when the Cowboys finish the preseason at home against Houston.
