Cowboys' Darren McFadden says he'll split carries with Joseph Randle
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/20/15) Cowboys running back Darren McFadden indicated during a radio interview Tuesday that the plan in Dallas is for Joseph Randle and McFadden to split carries out of the backfield, according to The Dallas Morning News.
“You know the competitor in me definitely wants to be the No. 1 guy that goes out there," he told KRLD-FM. "But at the same time, it’s like, man, you know we’re going to split carries. So whoever goes out there or goes out there second -- I just know whenever I do get a chance to get the ball in my hands, I’m going to go out there and go 110 percent.”
McFadden has had his share of injury issues, which have kept him from reaching his full potential in the NFL. He already missed some time this preseason due to a hamstring injury, but it appears McFadden is getting back to 100 percent.
“I feel great. Trainers are kind of just easing me back into things, but as far as I how I feel, I feel like I’m ready to get out there and go 100 percent," he said. "You know, they are going to be cautious. Dealing with a hamstring, they can be tricky. But we definitely don’t want to make any rush and delay it further.”
McFadden was also very complimentary of Randle during his interview.
“He’s a very slashy guy," McFadden said. "The one thing that I’ve learned about him since we’ve been out here is he’s a hard worker, and I love to see that in a running back. He’s a guy who can (hit a) home run at any time. He’s not afraid to stick his nose in there and pick up a blitz.”

Cowboys RB Darren McFadden hopeful of practicing Saturday

|(8/6/15) Cowboys running back Darren McFadden has become optimistic that he could make his training camp debut as early as Saturday after feeling no pain running and cutting over the last few days, per the Dallas Morning News.
He added that he wanted to test out his strained hamstring again before finalizing a timetable for joining the team.
An ankle injury to fellow running back Lance Dunbar, which was sustained Wednesday, makes the return of McFadden more imperative.
Darren McFadden, Rolando McClain open Cowboys' camp on PUP
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/30/15) The Cowboys opened training camp with two contributors on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
Running back Darren McFadden is still returning from a hamstring injury and will open camp on PUP. McFadden signed with the Cowboys in the offseason after spending the first seven years of his career with Oakland.
In addition, linebacker Rolando McClain was also placed on PUP, as he continues to recover from offseason knee surgery.
Both players can be taken off PUP at any time during camp, after they're medically cleared. McClain will have to serve a four-game suspension for substance abuse policy violation, however.
Cowboys RB Darren McFadden on his health: 'I'm 100 percent'
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/17/15) Cowboys running back Darren McFadden is finally healthy, per The Dallas Morning News.
McFadden, who has been injury prone throughout his career, declared he is injury free and ready to take part in the Cowboys' offseason practices.
“I’m 100 percent and ready to go play ball,” McFadden said. “It felt great. We were just taking precautions, they didn’t want me to mess it up or anything crazy. Just being out there today, it felt great. I was out there running, opening up and just trying to do what I can do.”
McFadden says he's ready to take on whatever role the Cowboys present him with. The team is in need of filling the void left behind by last year's league-leading rusher DeMarco Murray.
“Whatever they ask me to do, I feel up to it,” McFadden said. “I’m just going out here and working hard. Whatever it is that they decide they want, that’s how I’m going to roll.”
|Fantasy owners are never going to get over the disappointment of what Darren McFadden has been the past four seasons, but there's a chance for him to resurrect his career going from Oakland to Dallas. McFadden looked like a blossoming Fantasy star after his 2010 breakout season with more than 1,600 total yards and 10 touchdowns. But injuries and poor play has marred his production the past four years, and now he's looking for a fresh start with the Cowboys. He's not expected to be the primary ballcarrier in Dallas, but McFadden should have the chance for quality production when given a chance. The Cowboys have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, which helped DeMarco Murray dominate last season. We'll see what role McFadden plays this season, but he's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues. If he ends up getting a hefty workload this year, he could turn back the clock to 2010, which would make Fantasy owners happy -- if they are willing to trust him again.
