Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar is 100 percent healthy and ready to contribute this season.
“I kind of put those things in the past. It’s a whole new year. I can’t live off the past,” Dunbar said, via FOX Sports. “I’ve been feeling pretty good, not having any problems, no soreness or anything. I feel 100 percent.”
Dallas running backs coach Gary Brown likes what he sees in Dunbar.
“Well, he’s a guy that’s going to be a complete weapon. We can line him up anywhere on the team-tailback spot, at the wide receiver spot, in the slot. He has tremendous hands and he’s just not a specialty guy. He could play tailback if you need him to go out there and give you 15 or 20 carries. He’s that type of kid,” Brown said. “He brings a whole different dimension, a whole different vibe in our room as far as what he does and we’re looking forward to using him as a weapon as well.”
Dunbar knows how important it is to be versatile in the NFL.
“It’s always good (to be versatile),” Dunbar said. “The more you can do, the more you can help this team and they like guys who can do more. You can’t be one dimensional and for me to be able to do a lot of things, it can benefit me and the team at the same time, which is always good. My coach growing up used to always tell me that the more you can do, the better it is for you. The more you can do, the easier it is for you to make an NFL team and that was the truth.”
