    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was released Tuesday, Nov. 3, according to team sources.

    Huddle Up: It hasn't mattered with some other, more productive players on the Dallas roster, but Randle's checkered off-field track record and looming league suspension more than offset his so-so stats (76 rushes-313 yards-4 TDs), leaving Daren McFadden and Christine Michael atop the Cowboys' RB depth chart.

    Updating earlier reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is facing a one- or two-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy, stemming from a February marijuana-possession arrest in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. The charges were eventually dropped, but the incident was judged to have violated the league's personal-conduct policy.

    Huddle Up: It's not clear when the suspension will be handed down, but between that, Randle's current oblique issue and the announcement this week that Darren McFadden has moved into the lead role following his strong Week 7 effort, Randle's fantasy value is plummeting fast.

  • Posted: 10/28/2015 8:47pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

    Huddle Up: Randle isn't expected to play this week. Darren McFadden will be a RB2 against the Seahawks with Randle out.

  • Posted: 10/25/2015 11:32pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (back) exited with a strained back against the New York Giants in Week 7 after rushing for 24 yards on two carries.

    Huddle Up: Darren McFadden shined with over 100 yards rushing while Randle was out. Randle has been average this season, so expect McFadden to get the start next week regardless of his health.

  • Posted: 10/22/2015 4:37pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will continue to get the bulk of the carries, according to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. The team wants to get RB Christine Michael involved as well, though.

    Huddle Up: Randle has received at least 16 touches in all but one of the Cowboys' five games so far, but expect that total to dip some with Michael now getting a piece of the pie as well, leaving all three Dallas backs as nothing more than standard-size league flex options.

  • Posted: 9/14/2015 8:47am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle carried 16 times for 65 yards in the Week 1 win against the New York Giants, and he added three receptions for 42 yards.

    Huddle Up: Randle retains his job as the lead back in this committee, but Lance Dunbar was the go-to back in the passing game--especially in the hurry-up drill at the end of the game. This Dallas team doesn't look like it will be up on teams to the point of running lots of clock, which will put a ceiling on Randle's touches--and fantasy value.

  • Posted: 9/12/2015 10:27pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle has practiced with the first-team offense all week and has received a majority of the work, and 'all indications' point to Randle starting against the New York Giants Sunday, Sept. 13, according to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

    Huddle Up: Randle might start but expect to see Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar as well. We really won't know what to expect from the Cowboys' backfield until we see it in action. There's a good chance they ride the hot hand. The good news for Randle owners is it looks like he'll be first in line to get that hot hand.

  • Posted: 9/7/2015 8:35pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is expected to be the starting running back for the team in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: As expected, Randle will open the season as the Cowboys' lead horse with Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar also expected to be mixed in. Newly acquired Christine Michael is not expected to play in Week 1 as he's getting caught up in the offense.

  • Posted: 8/21/2015 6:17pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RBs Joseph Randle (oblique), Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Lance Dunbar (ankle) are all expected to receive some playing time during the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones.

    Huddle Up: Randle reportedly re-aggravated his oblique strain Thursday in practice, but if Jerry speaks, we must heed every word.

  • Posted: 8/21/2015 10:07am ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) aggravated his oblique injury Thursday, Aug. 20, and is doubtful for the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23.

    Huddle Up: Randle's hurt. McFadden just came back from injury, which means the clock is ticking on when his next injury occurs. That leaves Lance Dunbar as the beneficiary of the Cowboys' elite offensive line... and many scratching their head as to why Pierre Thomas or another veteran free agent isn't en route to Dallas right now.

  • Posted: 8/20/2015 8:07pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle left practice early Thursday, Aug. 20.

    Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on as there's speculation that Randle might've aggravated the oblique strain that he suffered last week -- an issue which kept him out of the Cowboys' preseason opener.

  • Posted: 8/15/2015 11:25am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) could participate in team drills during practice Saturday, Aug. 15. Randle has been limited because of an oblique injury.

    Huddle Up: Gus Johnson was hurt in Thursday's preseason game, so the Cowboys need some healthy bodies at running back soon. Randle looks like he's close to returning, which is a good sign for Dallas' think backfield.

  • Posted: 8/11/2015 4:45pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (oblique) participated in practice Tuesday, Aug. 11, although, he still may sit out the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 13.

    Huddle Up: With the RB returning to preseason practice the next day, it's a sure sign that the issue isn't anything serious. Speaking of sure signs, sitting out a preseason game while largely healthy is a good harbinger that the Cowboys are saving Randle for bigger and better things.

  • Posted: 8/10/2015 11:33pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was unable to finish practice Monday, Aug. 10 after suffering what was deemed a "slight" oblique strain. He was examined by head athletic trainer Jim Maurer. "We're going to go in here and figure out what we've got to do to get it back right so I can get back out here," Randle told ESPN NFL Nation reporter Todd Archer as he walked off the practice field.

    Huddle Up: Randle, who has had a strong camp and is the favorite to win the Cowboys' coveted starting job, joined fellow backs Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Lance Dunbar (ankle) on the sidelines Monday but let's see if turns out to be anything more than just a temporary scare.

  • Posted: 8/1/2015 12:13am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is the leading candidate for the starting running back job at this point. The team like Randle's vision and explosiveness and expect big things from him this season.

    Huddle Up: This was never really in much doubt. After some early talk of a committee, Ryan Williams was released and Darren McFadden became Darren McFadden, already injuring both hamstrings. Randle's ADP is creeping into Round 3 and that will only continue to rise as we get closer to the season.

  • Posted: 7/29/2015 10:20pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle received strong praise from team owner and general manager Jerry Jones Wednesday July 29. 'We have a player (in Randle) that has the potential -- and we based that on, not on what he did at Oklahoma State or how we drafted him, but by literally being a teammate around here for the last two years -- but he has the potential to be the kind of back that would step in there and be your No. 1 back,' Jones told reporters. 'If he were not here, then I wouldn't feel as good as we go into the season and what might happen,' said Jones.

    Huddle Up: Randle will get the first crack at replacing the departed DeMarco Murray. How he performs early will be key as to how much of a committee the Cowboys employ this season. Randle's 6.7 yards per carry average in 2014 was the highest of any running back with at least 50 carries. His ADP is currently Round 4.

  • Posted: 6/23/2015 3:31pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle appears to be the clear leader at running back, and it's his job to lose in training camp.

    Huddle Up: Darren McFadden's offseason -- and not at all surprising -- hammy injury has clearly placed Randle atop the depth chart, but things could just as easily swing back the other way in training camp and preseason -- especially for an unproven commodity such as Randle who only has 105 carries - total -- in his two NFL seasons.

  • Posted: 5/29/2015 1:28pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle took the majority of the first-team repetitions the first two days of organized team activities this week. RB Darren McFadden split the reps with Randle Wednesday, May 27.

    Huddle Up: While's McFadden's injury history and lack of durability is well documented, keep in mind that the projected lead back Randle only has totaled 105 carries over his first two pro seasons so he isn't exactly a proven commodity, either.

  • Posted: 5/17/2015 12:16am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle has the skills to lead the team's backfield in 2015 but he'll need to work on his off-field issues, according to Jon Machota of Randle will need to prove to his coaches he can stay out of trouble and be relied on every week.

    Huddle Up: The Cowboys will need Randle to step up, as Darren McFadden is far from reliable and there are no other legitimate options on the current depth chart. And while the Dallas offensive line is one of the best in football, Randle will need to demonstrate his trustworthiness in a hurry if fantasy owners are going to make him anything more than a late-round add in fantasy drafts later this summer.

  • Posted: 5/12/2015 2:20pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle could see the bulk of the carries as the season weighs on, in the opinion of beat writer Todd Archer. Archer pegged Randle for 1,200 rushing yards this season in what Archer admitted was a bold prediction.

    Huddle Up: Offseason addition Darren McFadden certainly can't be counted on given his injury history, but meanwhile Randle -- a fifth-round pick in 2013 -- has shown a penchant for finding off-the-field trouble and has amassed only 507 yards on 105 carries in two seasons so far, obviously leaving many to wonder if he's suited to shoulder the lead-role load. Still, that Big D offensive line can smooth over a lot of issues ...

  • Posted: 5/1/2015 1:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle could still face punishment from the league under the terms of personal-conduct policy, even though he will not face formal misdemeanor charges following a domestic disturbance.

    Huddle Up: Randle is definitely a candidate to join new teammate Greg Hardy on the suspension list, and that only increases the chances the Cowboys will draft a RB on Day 2 or 3.
