Somehow, things just got even worse for the Dallas Cowboys

As the Dallas Cowboys eye the start of the regular season, they’re surely hoping the injury bug gets out of their system now.

Not only are running backs Darren McFadden (PUP – hamstring) and Lance Dunbar (day-to-day – ankle) out with injuries, but the Cowboys backfield has suffered yet another step backward, according to the team’s official website:

“What’s worse than two injured running backs on the roster? That would be three injured running backs, something the Cowboys might be facing after first-teamer Joseph Randle missed all of Monday’s practice.”

It’s speculated that Randle suffered an oblique injury, and there’s no timetable for his return. If Randle is out for extended time, it would push undrafted free agent Gus Johnson and second-year player Lache Seastrunk into prominent spots.

The report notes Dunbar is hopeful to return to practice next week.
