Cowboys' Jason Garrett to RB Joseph Randle: 'Focus on doing, not talking'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/3/2015) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle had a very public back and forth with former teammate DeMarco Murray last week. Randle's coach Jason Garrett wants his guy to stop talking and start doing, per profootballtalk.com.

“We addressed that with Joe really immediately,” Garrett said. “I think sometimes comments like that get taken out of context or they are not really intended the way they come out. I think Joe has great respect for DeMarco as we all do. Joe did a good job with his opportunities. Joe and everyone else on our football team, we have to focus on what we do, not with what we say and I think he understands that. But the biggest thing is you need to focus on doing, not talking.”

Randle said Murray "left a lot of meat on the bone" last year, referring to the NFL's leading rusher giving up on certain runs roo early.

Randle rushed for 343 yards and three touchdowns last season, while Murray led the league with 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns.


Eagles RB Murray to Randle: 'Hopefully he can taste some of that meat'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Eagles running back DeMarco Murray and his former teammate Joseph Randle have an interesting back-and-forth going on, per csnphilly.com.

Randle, who backed up Murray as he lead the NFL in rushing, has recently said Murray "left a lot of meat on the bone" last year. 

Murray rushed for 1,845 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, helping the Cowboys become one of the most potent offenses in the league.

"Hopefully he can taste some of that meat this year," Murray said of his former teammate.“They’re a good team. Hopefully he can get a chance to run behind that line and do some good things. But I’m not worried about it. I didn’t hear about it until now. It’s not a big deal.”

The Cowboys will use a multi-running back system with Randle leading the way. He rushed for 343 yards and three touchdowns as Murray's backup last year.


Cowboys RB Joseph Randle confident he can replace DeMarco Murray


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) With last season's leading rusher no longer on the team, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle said he can replace the 1,845 rushing yards DeMarco Murray produced last season, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"He had a good year last year, and I got to sit back and watch a lot," Randle said, "and I felt like there was a lot of meat left on the bone."

Randle did get first-team reps during Wednesday's OTA session and he said he's ready to handle a heavy workload this season.

"I'm going to try to go out there and grind as hard as I can and see which role I end up in," Randle said. "If they ask me to do that, I'm ready for it. And if they believe in me, I believe in myself, that’s for sure."

Randle has been arrested twice in the last year, but he said he's learned from his mistakes.

"Everything you go through in life you learn from it and I learned from it and I've moved past it. I've grown up," Randle said. "I've made some young and silly mistakes, but I'm moving forward."


Cowboys weighing off-field issues of RB Joseph Randle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) The Cowboys have far more to consider than talent on the field in regard to the possible featured back status of Joseph Randle.

Randle could earn that distinction with DeMarco Murray gone, but his recent arrests on shoplifting and drug charges have given the team much more to think about.

"I think Joe really has to make sure he takes care of everything on and off the field," running backs coach Gary Brown told the Dallas Morning News. "We want to trust Joe, we like Joe, but we want to make sure he's going to be with us at all times.

"I think he's maturing up and he's getting better and he understands the opportunity he has in front of him and I think he'll take full advantage. I think those days are behind him and we're looking forward to working with Joe. ... He and I have sat down and had one-on-one conversations about his future and I think he wants to go in the right direction."

Randle, would could face discipline from the NFL for his indescretions, averaged an impressive 6.7 yards per carry last season.


Cowboys RB Randle won't face felony charges in domestic case


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/29/2015) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle will not face felony domestic abuse charges as the Sedgwick County, Kansas District Attorney cleared him in allegations made by his ex-girlfriend, per the Dallas Morning News, due to a lack of evidence.

Randle was involved in an incident with Dalia Jacobs, on Feb. 3 at a hotel in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. Jacobs accused Randle of pointing a gun at her friend and the infant son she has with the running back. She also said in a police report that Randle shattered the window of a car, sending glass flying across her friend and their son.

Randle could have faced a possible six-game suspension by the NFL if he had been charged in the case for a first-time offense under the league’s personal conduct policy.


Cowboys RB Joseph Randle's drug charge dropped


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has had his suspicion of marijuana possession charge dropped, according to the Associated Press

Police spokesman Lt. James Espinoza told the AP that there were "inconsistencies" with the drug charge and therefore they would not bring it.

However, the report also states that by dropping the marijuana charge, police can charge Randle with other offenses at the same time from a domestic violence allegation that occurred from the same incident.

Earlier Friday, the Dallas Morning News reported Randle's ex-girlfriend, Dalia Jacobs, filed a petition for a protective order against the Cowboys running back. Jacobs claimed Randle pointed a gun at her friend and punched the windshield of a vehicle.

Police were called to the scene but never found a firearm.


Ex-girlfriend files for protective order against Cowboys' Randle


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle's ex-girlfriend, also the mother of his child, has filed a petition for a protective order against him, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Randle is accused of pointing a gun at his ex-girlfriend Dalia Jacobs' friend in a car, with his son Daniel in a passenger seat. Jacobs' friend then covered up the child with her body, which followed with Randle punching the windshield of the vehicle they were in.

Via the Dallas Morning News, the petition for a protective order states Randle "has a violent temper and gets angry very quickly."

Randle was arrested in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. on Wednesday after police responded to a domestic violence call. Police then found Randle in possession of marijuana, which resulted in the arrest. Randle was not taken to jail but received a misdemeanor citation. He's expected to appear in court on Feb. 24. A firearm was not found by police.

Randle, a Wichita native, made headlines during the NFL season after he was arrested for shoplifting cologne and underwear at a Dillard's in Texas.

Randle ran for 343 yards and three touchdowns for the Cowboys in 2014.


Joseph Randle: 'Learning the value of a good lawyer each day!'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/5/2015) Responding to his second arrest in four months, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle tweeted, "Learning the value of a good Lawyer each day! #ItsAMust."

The Dallas Morning News noted Randle later tweeted advice about "watching out for the company you keep. He deleted that tweet about 20 minutes after it was sent."

Randle was charged with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor, in Wichita, Kan., early Tuesday. He was not taken to jail but is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 24.

Randle has a hearing April 10 for an incident last fall in which he's accused of shoplifting a bottle of cologne and a pack of underwear from Dillard's. Following that arrest, Randle landed an underwear sponsorship from MeUndies.

The Cowboys fined Randle following the alleged shoplifting incident. They have not commented on Tuesday's incident.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Wichita, Kan. police said Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested on a drug charge, according to a report from ABC television affiliate KAKE.

Authorities responded to a domestic violence call at a hotel room, where marijuana was discovered. Randle was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with a misdemeanor. 

Randle, a Wichita native, made headlines during the NFL season after he was arrested for shoplifting cologne and underwear at a Dillard's in Texas.

Randle ran for 343 yards and three touchdowns in 2014.


Joseph Randle establishes his place in the hierarchy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) With the Cowboys up big and DeMarco Murray somewhat limited following a hand injury, the Cowboys turned to their backups for an increased role in Week 16 against the Colts, and it was Joseph Randle who had the most to gain.

Lance Dunbar mostly remained in his usual role, finishing the game with two receptions and two rushes for 14 all-purpose yards, while Randle saw his role increase in a big way. Randle rushed the ball a season-high 13 times, and though he managed just 37 yards, you had to come away from the game pleased to know exactly where he falls in the hierarchy.

It wouldn't be a surprise to see Murray limited even more in Week 17, with a playoff spot locked up. Randle was expected to see the larger share than Dunbar, but it was still good to see confirmation of that. Keep an eye on how the Cowboys plan to use Murray this week, because Randle could be a solid starting Fantasy option in Week 17 against Washington.


Joseph Randle gets 14 touches to Lance Dunbar's four


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) Cowboys backup running backs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar combined for 18 touches behind DeMarco Murray in Week 16, with Randle getting the bulk of the work. Randle ran 13 times for 37 yards and caught a 7-yard pass, while Dunbar rushed twice for 4 yards and caught two passes for 10 yards.

Randle lost his second fumble this year. Randle and Dunbar could get a substantial workload Week 17 at Washington if the Cowboys don't believe they can improve their playoff position.


Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray active against Colts


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) One week after breaking a bone in his left hand, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is active for Sunday's game against the Colts. Murray, who was listed as questionable, will play with a protective pad on his surgically-repaired hand.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys are nervous about Murray's ability to pass-protect. Murray leads the NFL with 1,687 rushing yards. He'll be backed up by Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar.

Dallas is favored by 3 or 3.5 points at Vegas sportsbooks.


DeMarco Murray increases workload in Thursday's practice


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/18/2014) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was listed as limited in Thursday's practice, but he said he did a lot more than he was able to do Wednesday, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wearing a special glove with padding to protect his surgically-repaired left hand, Murray participated in some team drills.

"It’s good," Murray told the paper. "I feel good."

Murray was asked if he'll play Sunday against the Colts, if the decision is left up to him. "I’m a very competitive person and I want to help this team out as much as I can," he told the paper. "I’ve had two good days and we’ll see how it goes."

Owner Jerry Jones said he was encouraged that Murray, the NFL's leading rusher, is "so aggressive in his thinking about playing."

Murray underwent surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his hand. If he sits out, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would rotate at tailback. Dallas is favored by 3 over the Colts at nearly every sportsbook.


Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray practices, but how much?


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/18/2014) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray participated in the early part of practice for the second straight day Thursday, but it wasn't yet clear if he joined team drills after watching those Wednesday, reports the Dallas Morning News. Murray's left hand was wrapped.

He had surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his hand. If Murray can't play Sunday against the Colts, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would share backfield duties.

The Cowboys are 3-point favorites over the AFC South champs.


DeMarco Murray to wear protective padding, not cast, if he plays


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/17/2014) If Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray plays less than a week after undergoing surgery, it will be with protective padding on his left hand, not a cast, reports the Dallas Morning News. Murray went through individual drills Wednesday wearing a glove enforced with a hard plastic shell.

"I think we need to see something where there’s a comfort level we all have and certainly a comfort level that he has," coach Jason Garrett told the paper. "Carrying the football is an important responsibility. You have to be able to do it."

Dallas is a 3-point home favorite over the Colts on Sunday. If Murray can't play, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will share backfield duties.

Randle is averaging 7.0 yards per carry and would be the favorite to start, but he hasn't gotten more than two carries in a game since Week 10. Dunbar is a better receiver than Randle and would handle most of the passing downs.

Murray underwent surgery Monday, one day after breaking a bone in his left hand. He leads the NFL with 351 carries for 1,687 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns.


Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray practicing two days after surgery


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/17/2014) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was "going through drills and catching passes" at Wednesday's practice, reports NFL.com. ESPN.com reports Murray participated in all individual drills despite having his left hand wrapped.

"I think we need to see something," coach Jason Garrett told reporters. "So we'll take it day by day and see how he progresses."

Murray underwent surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his left hand. He leads the NFL with 351 carries for 1,687 yards and 11 touchdowns. He wasn't expected to participate in team drills as the team eases him back.

If the Cowboys hold out Murray on Sunday against the Colts, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would carry the load. Randle is averaging 7.0 yards on his 34 carries and would handle most of the early-down work. Dunbar is an excellent receiver (16 catches, 207 yards) who would play mainly on third downs and in hurry-up situations.

Owner Jerry Jones said Murray likely will be a gametime decision. The Cowboys are 3-point favorites over Indy at most Las Vegas sportsbooks.


Cowboys RBs Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar 'ready for whatever'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) With the status of DeMarco Murray (hand) up in the air, Cowboys backup running backs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar are preparing for a larger workload for Week 16, if necessary, according to the Star-Telegram. Both backs have totaled 328 yards on 60 carries on the ground this season.

"We're approaching it the same way," Dunbar said. "We haven't gotten into all that yet. Tomorrow is the first day we get to practice and stuff. I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same way. You always have to be ready just in case your number is called. If my number is called, I'll be ready if he's not able to go."

"We don't know what the opportunity is yet because he hasn't been ruled out but I'm ready for whatever," Randle said. "I'm itching big time. I feel like I can get job done definitely if they ask me to do that. I don't want to let the team down. This is a huge game for our season. I'm going to be fully ready to go."

It remains to be seen which running back would get the start if Murray can't play.

Dallas is a 3-point favorite at home against Indianapolis on Sunday.


What to do in DeMarco Murray's absence?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) With DeMarco Murray's (hand) availability very much in doubt, plenty of Fantasy owners are going to be scrambling for the waiver wires ahead of Week 16. At the Fantasy Football Today blog, I took a look at Murray's backups, Joseph Randle and  Lance Dunbar, to see how they might be used in Murray's absence:

"Dunbar saw more work than Randle in Week 15 as well, playing 14 snaps to Randle's three. However, the team has been more likely to give Randle the ball when he's been on the field, as he has touched the ball on 58.1 percent of his offensive snaps. That number is closer to Murray's mark of 56.9 than Dunbar's 38.9 percent mark."

Randle is averaging a robust 7.0 yards per carry on the season, twice what Dunbar has managed. However, Dunbar has much more experience as a pass-catching option out of the backfield, so we could see a true split if Murray sits, with Randle handling the early downs and Dunbar getting work when the team needs to pass. 

If you can only pick up one player, Randle looks like the guy to own. Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard have him among their top-16 running backs for the week, while Dunbar manages to just barely sneak into Dave's top-30, and doesn't come anywhere close for Jamey. He may have more value in a PPR format, but Randle has been so effective running the ball, he probably fits what the Cowboys want to do more. 


Cowboys backup runners combine for five touches


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/27/2014) Cowboys backup running backs Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar were barely used in Thursday's loss to the Eagles. Randle ran twice for 6 yards and caught one pass for minus-1 yard. Dunbar rushed twice for 15 yards, including a 14-yard gain.

They'll visit the Bears next Thursday.


Cowboys RB Joseph Randle scores in defeat of Jaguars


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle didn't do much with six of his carries, but he certainly made the most of his other one Sunday against Jacksonville. He took it 40 yards for a touchdown midway through the third quarter. It was his first score of the year.

Randle, who rushed for a season-high 56 yards in the victory, can relax and savor his performance as Dallas starts its bye week.


Cowboys get some offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/2/2014) Several Cowboys made minor contributions Week 9 against Arizona. Among them, running back Joseph Randle had a 2-yard carry. Wideouts Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley each had a 12-yard reception.

They'll all face the Jaguars in London in Week 10.


Report: Cowboys worried about Joseph Randle


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2014) The Cowboys are concerned whether running back Joseph Randle will be an impediment to team chemistry if he remains on the roster, ESPN reports.

Coach Jason Garrett reportedly met with Randle and wide receiver Dez Bryant after a loud verbal disagreement between the two players carried over to the practice field Friday, then discussed the subject with the whole team Saturday. The running back has apparently been ostracized by some teammates for remarks made to the police while being booked for shoplifting charges.

A source quoted in the report said, "Randle is staying for now," but the backup to DeMarco Murray could be on tenuous ground with the team.


Cowboys use their role players on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/28/2014) Several Cowboys contributed in the Week 8 loss to the Redskins. Among them, backup running back Joseph Randle ran three times for 23 yards, averaging 7.7 yards per carry, but lost a fumble.

Backup running back Lance Dunbar added a 6-yard rush and an 11-yard catch. Wideout Cole Beasley secured one of two targets for 11 yards, and tight end James Hanna made a 7-yard grab. They'll all face the Cardinals in Week 9.


Cowboys backup running backs do little Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Cowboys backup runners did little Week 7 against the Giants.

Lance Dunbar received three carries, gaining 16 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game. Joseph Randle gained 7 yards on two carries. He caught one pass for 14 yards. 

Both players will take on Washington Week 8. 


Jason Garrett says RB Joseph Randle will play Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/15/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said running back Joseph Randle, arrested on a shoplifting charge Monday, apologized to the team and will be fined significantly for the incident, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Randle will play Sunday against the Giants, Garrett added.

Randle is accused of shoplifting cologne and underwear from a Dillard's in Frisco, Tex. He was charged with Class B misdemeanor theft.
