by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Joseph Randle exits game with strained oblique


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle left Saturday's preseason game against Miami with a strained oblique injury, per the Dallas Morning News. Randle sustained the injury in the first half and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. He had one total tackle while working with the special teams unit.

Joseph Randle 'really playing outstanding'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has rushed for 91 yards on 20 preseason carries (4.6 yards per carry). Owner Jerry Jones said Randle "is really playing outstanding" and "that's not an exaggeration," reports ESPN.com.

Randle, who averaged 3.0 yards per carry last year, said he's bigger, stronger and smarter. "I'm a year smarter in the playbook. I think that's all things that help me play fast," he said. "Now, I'm just working on playing fast every play I'm out there. That comes with practice."

Randle is running third behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.


Joseph Randle leads Cowboys in rushing again vs. Ravens


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle led the team in rushing yards in its first preseason game, and he accomplished the same feat again Saturday, racking up 41 yards on seven carries and adding another eight yards on one reception in his team's loss to the Ravens.

Randle was the third back in for the Cowboys, but he did see action at the end of the first quarter as well as in the second and third quarters before wrapping up his night. He may continue to serve as the No. 3 back during the regular season, but Randle would be the favorite to lead the team in carries each week if something were to happen to starter DeMarco Murray.


Joseph Randle rushes for 50 yards in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar sidelined, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle earned the start and played well in Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers in San Diego.

Randle saw the bulk of the load on offense, racking up all 13 of his carries in the first two series of the game. He rushed for 50 yards and was held without a catch despite being targeted once in a 27-7 defeat.

Joseph Randle ahead of Ryan Williams for now


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Cowboys will go into the season with DeMarco Murray as the starting running back and Lance Dunbar being used as a specialist, reports ESPN.

But Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are competing for the No. 3 job, and Randle "has the inside track." The report also says Randle "would likely take over the every-down role if something were to happen to Murray."


Joseph Randle scores in garbage time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle rushed nine times for 54 yards and a touchdown against Chicago's league-worst run defense. Randle's longest run went 19 yards, and he scored on a 1-yard run with 11 seconds left. It was Randle's second touchdown.

Randle, who was not targeted in the passing game, will back up DeMarco Murray again Week 15 vs. Green Bay.


Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar held in check


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) The Cowboys got back the services of starting running back DeMarco Murray on Sunday during the Week 9 win over Minnesota. That meant fewer touches for Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar

Randle rushed just once in the game for 3 yards. Dunbar had three carries for minus-6 yards. Dunbar did have three catches for 17 yards on three targets. Randle was not targeted in the passing game. Dallas plays at New Orleans Week 10. 


Joseph Randle mediocre in place of DeMarco Murray


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Cowboys running back Joseph Randle got the start Sunday during the Week 8 game at Detroit with DeMarco Murray needing another week on the inactive list. 

Randle was ineffective as the starting back in the game as the entire Dallas running game struggled without Murray. Randle rushed 14 times for just 26 yards as he averaged 1.9 yards per carry. He had a long run of 7 yards and did not score. 

Randle added three receptions for 18 yards in the game. He was targeted four times in the passing game by Tony Romo. Randle will likely go back to backing up Murray in the Week 9 game against Minnesota. 


Joseph Randle gets the start for Cowboys


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) The Cowboys will start Joseph Randle at running back Sunday at Detroit in place of injured starter DeMarco Murray, ESPN reports. Randle registered a career-high 92 scrimmage yards in his debut as a starter last week at Philadelphia. 

Report: DeMarco Murray 'not looking good' for Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2013) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is "not looking good" for Sunday's contest against the Lions in Week 8, according to Brian Broaddus of the team's official website on Saturday.

Murray missed last week's game against the Eagles due to a sprained MCL and was limited in practice three days in a row. He was officially listed as questionable on the injury report leading up to Sunday. According to Broaddus, Murray may have pushed himself too quickly to get back on the field. Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle will split the load, if he is unable to start against Detroit.


Value high for Joseph Randle if DeMarco Murray still out


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle registered a career-high 92 scrimmage yards in his debut as a starter last week at Philadelphia. What can he do for an encore Week 8 at Detroit?

Unfortunately, his Fantasy value will be tied to the health of starting running back DeMarco Murray. Murray missed last week's game but could conceivably return against the Lions. That has yet to be decided.

If Randle gets the start, he'll be facing a team that has allowed the 12th-most Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season. That said, Detroit has not allowed a rushing touchdown in the last three games and have allowed just two over the last five weeks.

Phillip Tanner and Randle will share the load if Murray is out again, with Randle seeing the bulk of the work. He's looked solid in his limited time on the field for the Cowboys and can be considered a No. 2 Fantasy RB as long as Murray remains out.

Joseph Randle rushes for 65 yards in first career start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle made his first career start Week 7 at Philadelphia with starter DeMarco Murray sidelined by a knee injury. Randle performed well, rushing for a team-high 65 yards on 19 carries and added three catches for 28 yards.

"It felt really good and I got more comfortable as the game progressed," Randle said, per ESPN. "First half was a little slow but then we got moving well on offense. I think I ran the ball well North to South down the field but there are always things you would like to do better." 

Randle's longest carry went for 12 yards and his longest catch went for 13 yards. Unfortunately, backup Phillip Tanner had the team's only rushing touchdown Sunday -- a 1-yard score in the third quarter.

"I think Randle can really early the openings in the line and he understands his responsibilities more and more every week," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "I thought he played really well today."

The Cowboys are back in action Week 8 at Detroit. Murray's status is week-to-week, so Randle might be called on to make another start Week 8.


Joseph Randle taking first-team snaps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) As expected, Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle is getting the first-team reps in Wednesday's practice, reports ESPN.com. Randle is expected to start at Philadelphia with DeMarco Murray (knee) probably out.

Joseph Randle could be helpful if RB situation is dire


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) With Cowboys running backs DeMarco Murray (knee) and Lance Dunbar (hamstring) expected to sit out Week 7 at Philadelphia, rookie running back Joseph Randle will be a hot pickup in Fantasy leagues this week. If you are lucky enough to nab Randle off waivers (owned in 6 percent of leagues), then you might consider starting him in Week 7.

Running backs average 91.2 rushing yards, 37.8 receiving yards and 15 Fantasy points per week against the Eagles. The Fantasy Points Against average is a little bit low because running backs have just four touchdowns and three fumbles against Philadelphia. Most teams have taken to the air to expose Philadelphia's weak secondary.

Randle got his first carries Week 6 when Murray left the game with a knee injury. Though, Randle was far from impressive, despite scoring a touchdown. He rushed for just 17 yards on 11 carries. Perhaps he will perform better Sunday after a full week of reps with the first-team offense. Fantasy owners can consider Randle a low-end No. 2 Fantasy running back or flex option Week 7.


Cowboys trying to remain upbeat after losing top RB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) With the Cowboys preparing to move forward without running back DeMarco Murray, who suffered a sprained MCL Sunday vs. Washington, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team has confidence in running backs Phillip Tanner and Joseph Randle. Backup running back Lance Dunbar sat out Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, but he is expected back soon, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"We’ll get Dunbar back, and Murray back, and get back to full speed there at running back," Jones said. "But obviously, I think Tanner and Randle, if he can’t go, will do a good job for us."

Randle got most of the work once Murray left the game, but the results weren't great. He rushed for 17 yards on 11 carries, though he had a rushing touchdown. Tanner had just one carry for 2 yards.

"Any time a player comes out of the game and can’t go back in, you’re concerned," Jones said. "We’re playing well with (Murray). There’s a fall-off there, but I also thought it was nice for Randle to get in there and get his feet wet. I think it’s only going to get better for him."


Joseph Randle steps in for injured DeMarco Murray


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle stepped in for an injured DeMarco Murray and scored his first career touchdown in Sunday's win over the Redskins in Week 6.

Randle filled in for Murray, who left the game in the second quarter with a left knee sprain. He broke for a short, 1-yard run in the fourth quarter to break the game open for Dallas. He finished with 11 carries for 17 yards and a touchdown on the ground and two catches for 15 yards in a 31-16 victory.

The rookie out of Oklahoma State could be in line to take over for Murray if he is unavailable in Week 7 when the Cowboys will take on the Eagles in Philadelphia. The Eagles allowed 94 rushing yards to Tampa Bay in Week 6.


Joseph Randle could see first action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2013) The Cowboys have been unable to find a spot for rookie running back Joseph Randle, but that could change in Week 4 against the Chargers. With wide receiver Miles Austin dealing with a hamstring injury, the Cowboys may be able to get Randle active on the 46-man roster for game day Sunday, according to ESPN.com.

The Cowboys could go with four active running backs for the game, with Randle getting time on the special teams unit.

"I'm getting more into the special teams a little more," said Randle, who will participate on two units. "That's what they wanted from me and that's what they got." 


Cowboys list inactives for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) The Cowboys official inactive list featured seven players for Week 3 against the Rams, two of whom were listed on the injury report. Along with linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) and defensive lineman Anthony Spencer (knee), the Cowboys also listed offensive linemen David Arkin and Darrion Weems, tight end Andre Smith, running back Joseph Randle, and defensive lineman David Carter as inactive. 

Cowboys have no stars on inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2013) The Cowboys got their injured players ready to roll on Sunday, which results in an inactive list without big names.

Included are wide receiver Cole Beasley, linebacker Ernie Sims, running back Joseph Randle, guard David Arkin, defensive tackle Caesar Rayford, left tackle Darrion Weems and tight end Andre Smith.


Lance Dunbar has sprained left foot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2013) Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar missed practice with a left foot sprain and is in a walking boot according to the official team website. He is expected to miss three to four weeks.  

Dunbar appeared to have the inside track at being the No. 2 back for the Cowboys before the injury. Now the likes of Phillip Tanner and Joseph Randle are in the mix to back up DeMarco Murray. 


Joseph Randle ready for training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2013) Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle is looking forward to training camp now that the cast is off his surgically repaired thumb.

"Don't get me wrong, I've been putting in some good work," he said to the Cowboys' official team website. "There's a lot of other things I can be doing, and I can't be concerned with what I can't do right now. I'm getting a lot of great conditioning in."

While he wasn't able to do extensive running back work with his teammates, Randle said the solitary work could benefit him in ways he hasn't seen before.

"I think I'll be coming into the year in the best shape I've ever been in -- physically, and all of that," Randle said. "Learning the playbook, too -- we've been grinding on the plays. Because you won't be on the field anyway if you don't know the plays."
