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.”
Garett: Cowboys RB Darren McFadden could get more work soon
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/16/15) The workload for Cowboys new running back Darren McFadden seems destined to be ramping up at minicamp, per the team website.
Jason Garrett has declared that McFadden might get a bit more work as his strained hamstring is healing.
McFadden spent his first seven seasons with Oakland, where he exceeded 1,000 yards rushing just once and was generally considered a disappointment.
Cowboys RB Darren McFadden waiting out strained hamstring
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Cowboys new running back Darren McFadden has grown impatient about his strained hamstring that has prevented him from joining his teammates in OTAs.
He hopes to participate at least a bit in minicamp next week, but he remains rankled.
"It's definitely frustrating," he told ESPN. "You always want to be out there taking plays and getting reps, but it's one of those things I'd rather sit out now instead of pushing it and have something linger on me."
McFadden signed a two-year contract with Dallas and could receive the bulk of the carries given the loss of DeMarco Murray to Philadelphia. He has worked some individual drills the last two weeks, but not in 7-on-7 activity.
Cowboys RB Darren McFadden not concerned with playing time
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) With the Cowboys just beginning their organized team activities this week, running back Darren McFadden said he just wants to concentrate on becoming familiar with the team, reports the team's official website.
"For me, I'm just going out there grinding," he said. "However the coaches put me out there – whether it's first team or second team. When it comes time for them to make a decision, it's totally up to them. I'm just trying to get that playbook down and take advantage of this opportunity."
McFadden is competing with Joseph Randle to be the first-team running back, and he said he just wants to work hard and not worry about how many repetitions he's receiving with the first team.
"Once you've been in a place so long like Oakland, you can get set in your ways," McFadden said Wednesday, after his second OTA practice with the Cowboys. "Coming out here and being around guys that work so hard, it just brings out the best in you. It's something I look forward to."
|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.
