The Dallas Cowboys are searching for a replacement for third down running back Lance Dunbar, and they held a workout for former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson on Thursday according to Jane Slater.

Dunbar left the Cowboys to join the Los Angeles Rams earlier this offseason.

Robinson played his first four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. His best season was in 2014 when he rushed for 582 yards and four touchdowns, and he also caught 23 passes for 124 yards.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Cowboys also worked out former Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman.

Depth could be an issue at running back early on for the Cowboys, especially if Ezekiel Elliott is suspended for any amount of time.

Adding Robinson or Hillman would help out with the depth in the short term, and they could also help Dallas by providing a change of pace running back.
