According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys believes that rookie running back Joseph Randle can carry the load if DeMarco Murray goes down.
The Cowboys believe he can be a full-time back if something happened to DeMarco Murray, but he was a fifth-round pick. Randle will have to show he can beat out Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tannerto do the job. Getting a late start doing that isn’t a positive.
With Murray’s injury history, they’re going to likely need someone to step up in his place this season.
