Joseph Randle RB DAL 13 Hrs

Randle (concussion) is active Sunday in St. Louis, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Randle fended off a concussion sustained in Week 2, despite tallying just one limited appearance in practice this week. His limited usage so far (three carries) doesn't endear him to many owners, especially with DeMarco Murray taking on the bulk of the RB workload.

Randle (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.

Randle made his first practice appearance of the week Friday, making a limited practice showing, but he evidently has not yet received full clearance to return from his concussion. If he can't suit up against the Rams on Sunday, Lance Dunbar would presumably see a few extra snaps.

Randle (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Randle suffered a concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Titans. Now, the Cowboys' No. 3 running back will need to pass league protocol before being cleared to return to the field.

Randle suffered a concussion in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Titans, ESPN.com reports.

Prior to his exit, Randle recorded 26 yards on three carries. He's behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar in the Cowboys' RB pecking order, however, which caps his fantasy relevance for now.

Randle (oblique) wasn't on the Cowboys' injury report Wednesday.

Randle sustained an oblique injury in the third preseason contest, which spurred his absence in the finale last Thursday. Even though he'll be active Sunday, expects his reps on offense to be all but nonexistent behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.

Randle (oblique strain) will not play Thursday against the Broncos, ESPN.com reports.

That said, the report suggests that Randle appears to have the edge over Ryan Williams to secure the Cowboys' No. 3 running back slot behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.

Randle suffered a rib injury during Saturday's preseason loss at Miami, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Randle's sole contribution of note was a tackle on the kickoff following the Cowboys' first scoring drive late in the first quarter. As a result, he didn't have the opportunity to factor into the rushing attack, thereby allowing Ryan Williams to handle the second-half reps out of the backfield, to great effect (12 carries for 47 yards and two catches for 22 yards). Consider Randle day-to-day until the severity of the injury is evident.

Randle had another strong outing Saturday, rushing for 41 yards on seven carries and catching an eight yard pass.

His competition for the third RB spot on the depth chart, Ryan Williams, also had an impressive game, so neither one was able to separate themselves. If the Cowboys aren't able to roster both, this battle could come down to who's more useful on special teams.

Randle gained 50 yards on 13 carries in Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers.

The Cowboys rested their star players and No. 2 RB Lance Dunbar, allowing Randle to dominate the "first-team" touches. Randle could perhaps face competition for the No. 3 running back role from former second-round draft pick Ryan Williams, who rushed for 29 yards on eight carries, adding five receptions for 31 yards on seven targets. With both DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar subject to durability concerns, the No. 3 running back battle is a bit more important than elsewhere around the league. It's also worth noting that the Cowboys have a strong offensive line, although a weak defense might force the team to abandon the run at times.

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes Joseph Randle has the "inside track" on the Cowboys' No. 3 tailback job, and "would likely take over the every-down role" if DeMarco Murray missed time.

Six weeks ago, ESPN Dallas had Randle in danger of losing his roster spot. Archer's inference is that No. 2 back Lance Dunbar's role wouldn't change much if Murray got hurt, with Randle assuming lead-back work. It's notable, but we find it tough to believe. Randle struggled as a rookie (3.0 YPC) and didn't profile well into the NFL coming out of college. We think he's still on the bubble.
