Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden is expected to participate in a full practice Saturday while recovering from a hamstring injury, according to the Dallas Morning News. McFadden has yet to practice with the team after suffering the injury prior to training camp, but he said he has kept in football shape and does not anticipate much of a learning curve. “I wouldn’t say I’m behind as far as reps and just being in football shape and running, I would say I’m there,” McFadden said. “I’ve been on top of my playbook, I’ve been up to par on everything so it’s just a matter of getting back out there and getting my feet back up under me good.” McFadden, who signed a two-year contract in March after the departure of DeMarco Murray, is hopeful to be able to play in the team's next preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers on Aug. 23.

Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden will not practice until next Saturday, at the earliest, because of a hamstring injury, according to the Dallas Morning News. McFadden, who was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp, was expected to return to practice this weekend but will miss the preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers. "We anticipate his plan to be that he is going to get more and more work on the side this week and then hopefully practice after San Diego," head coach Jason Garrett said. "That might change. But that's the plan as we sit right now. It's not precautionary. It's just being very deliberate with his rehab and making sure a guy who has these soft tissue injuries – we want to make sure they're really ready to go before we put them back out there." McFadden was expected to compete with Joseph Randle for the starting running back job.

Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden will miss about a week of training camp after injuring his hamstring. McFadden has already dealt with a previous hamstring injury this offseason and will need to put the injuries behind him in order to make headway in the competition for a starting job.

McFadden said his hamstring is doing great, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports.

McFadden was limited by a hamstring ailment during OTAs, but he made it back on the field for mandatory minicamp in mid-June. He'll enter training camp with a shot to earn a significant role in the offense, competing against Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams for carries. Randle and McFadden are the favorites to win the starting job.

McFadden (hamstring) is participating in Tuesday's minicamp practice, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

McFadden missed most of OTAs but doesn't seem to be dealing with a serious issue. Of course, he's been limited by nagging injuries throughout his career, so this wasn't the best way to start his tenure as a Cowboy. He's still in line to compete against Joseph Randle for the top spot in the Dallas backfield, with Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams (knee) potentially also in the mix. The Cowboys' o-line is far better than what McFadden had to work with in Oakland, but even if he earns a key role this could end up as a committee.

McFadden (hamstring) is not yet at full strength, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

McFadden continues to nurse a strained hamstring, and he'll likely be limited throughout the week. Joseph Randle will likely get the first team reps in McFadden's absence, while Lance Dunbar figures to work with the second team given Ryan Williams' (knee) absence.

McFadden worked out on the side Wednesday due to a hamstring strain, ESPN.com reports.

Meanwhile, Joseph Randle took the team's first-team running back snaps on Wednesday. While it doesn't appear as though McFadden's current hamstring issue is a major concern, he does have a notable injury history, so it's worth mentioning. Once he's back on the field with his teammates, McFadden will look to solidify his role in what could well emerge as a backfield time-share between him and Randle, with Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams (who is dealing with a sore knee) also on hand.
