RB Joseph Randle handled the first-team reps during the team portion of Wednesday's practice.
DeMarco Murray (hand) participated in individual drills and even caught some passes two days after surgery, putting him on track to play against the Colts. But if he can't, Randle would handle the majority of base back duties, including goal-line work. That's key as eight of DeMarco's 11 touchdowns this season have come from three yards out or closer. Randle is the preferred handcuff while we await more news on Murray. Dec 18 - 8:49 AM

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' website expects Joseph Randle to be Dallas' starting running back if DeMarco Murray (hand) misses time.

Murray is currently having surgery to repair a broken band on his left hand. His status for Week 16 is uncertain. Randle would handle early-down work with Lance Dunbar in the change-of-pace and satellite role. If Murray can't play Sunday versus the Colts, Randle would be a quality RB2 fantasy start.
Dec 15 - 3:49 PM

Joseph Randle rushed for a 17-yard touchdown in Dallas' Week 14 win over the Bears.

Randle's lone spelling of workhorse DeMarco Murray happened to come in the red zone, where he ran right through the Bears' invisible defense. The Cowboys appear poised to ride Murray hard as they look to clinch a playoff berth, rendering Randle nothing more than a handcuff.
Dec 5 - 12:25 AM

Joseph Randle had two carries for six yards in Week 13 against the Eagles.

Randle got only three touches behind DeMarco Murray. He remains just a handcuff going into the fantasy playoffs.
Nov 27 - 9:27 PM

Joseph Randle was held without a carry in Week 12.

Randle wasn't targeted in the pass game, and didn't get any touches behind DeMarco Murray. Lance Dunbar played more snaps this week and had a 26-yard catch in the second quarter. Randle remains just a handcuff for Murray owners.
Nov 24 - 1:47 AM

Joseph Randle rushed for 56 yards and a score on 7 carries in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Jaguars.

Randle cruised through a huge hole for a 40-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was his first touchdown this season and the longest run of his career. Randle has looked good in limited work this season, and would be a high-end starting option if DeMarco Murray went down. He is a must-own for Murray owners heading into the fantasy playoffs.
Nov 9 - 4:23 PM

Joseph Randle rushed once for two yards in Dallas' Week 9 loss to the Cardinals.

There was no work to be had for DeMarco Murray's handcuff with the Cowboys playing from behind for the majority of the afternoon. Randle has no standalone value in re-draft leagues.
Nov 2 - 5:49 PM

ESPN Dallas reports that a majority of the Cowboys players want Joseph Randle released.

Randle's off-field issues have become a distraction since getting arrested for shoplifting earlier this month. He was involved in an altercation with Dez Bryant in practice, and coach Jason Garrett held a meeting on Saturday to discuss concerns with the entire team. For now, the Cowboys don't appear to have any plans to release him. Randle remains the primary handcuff for DeMarco Murray.
Nov 1 - 6:02 PM

Joseph Randle rushed for 23 yards on three carries in the Cowboys' Week 8 loss to the Redskins.

Randle wasn't used in the pass game and we're not sure he saw the field after losing a fumble inside his own 20-yard line in the first half. Luckily for Randle, Colt McCoy gave the ball right back with a bad interception. Randle remains the primary handcuff for DeMarco Murray owners.
Oct 28 - 12:17 AM

Joseph Randle rushed two times for seven yards and caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Giants.

As expected, Randle was not punished in any way for embarrassing shoplifting incident. He remains the primary early-down handcuff to DeMarco Murray, who is now on pace for 427 carries after piling up 28 more Sunday. Lance Dunbar (three touches) would also be involved if Murray were to go down.
Oct 19 - 8:13 PM

Coach Jason Garrett confirmed Joseph Randle won't be suspended after his shoplifting arrest.

Garrett said the team will fine Randle "significantly," but he'll play Sunday against the Giants. He's rushed for 113 yards on 16 carries as DeMarco Murray's backup.
Oct 15 - 11:46 AM

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys aren't planning to suspend RB Joseph Randle for his shoplifting arrest.

Per reporter Brandon George, Randle will be fined between $10,000-$30,000. The underwear and cologne Randle was trying to lift from his local Dillard's just got a lot more expensive.
Oct 14 - 6:15 PM

Frisco, Texas police arrested Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Monday night on shoplifting charges.

Randle was popped for a Class B Misdemeanor Theft $50-$500, at Dillard's. Police say he was arrested for stealing underwear and cologne. Randle, DeMarco Murray's direct backup on early downs, is making $495,000 this season.
Oct 14 - 10:25 AM

Joseph Randle rushed five times for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win at Seattle.

Establishing himself as DeMarco Murray's early-down handcuff, Randle looked far more impressive than any of the tape he's previously shown. Credit the Cowboys' dominant offensive line. Randle is a must-stash right now given DeMarco's 424-carry pace and injury history.
Oct 12 - 8:13 PM

Joseph Randle rushed twice for four yards in Dallas' Week 5 win over the Texans.

DeMarco Murray handled 37 of the Cowboys' 39 running back touches. Randle has no standalone value as Murray's between-the-tackles handcuff.
