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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Oct 5 - 6:36 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Joseph Randle has "probably" earned more playing time.

"The biggest threat to DeMarco's stats is Joseph Randle," Jones said. "We probably should have at least Randle get a few more snaps." Jones' comments confirm that Randle would get the majority of carries if Murray suffered an injury, but he isn't going to factor into his current workload. Lance Dunbar would remain in his change-of-pace role.
Oct 3 - 8:38 PM

Joseph Randle rushed four times for 22 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

Randle spelled DeMarco Murray and got some work in mop-up duty. He would likely lead the Cowboys in carries if Murray got injured, with Lance Dunbar playing in a change-of-pace role. Randle's only value is as a fantasy handcuff.
Sep 29 - 1:28 AM

Joseph Randle had two carries for nine yards in Week 3.

Randle played despite being listed as questionable with a concussion. He briefly spelled DeMarco Murray, but saw limited snaps. Randle remains behind Lance Dunbar for No. 2 duties.
Sep 21 - 6:27 PM

Joseph Randle (concussion) is questionable for Week 3.

Randle returned to practice Friday, but is still in the concussion protocol. He'll need to get cleared on Saturday to play this week. Even if active, Randle is unlikely to see touches behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.
Sep 19 - 8:23 PM

Joseph Randle (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Randle is in the concussion protocol and seems unlikely to play this week. Lance Dunbar will continue to handle No. 2 duties behind DeMarco Murray.
Sep 17 - 5:05 PM

Joseph Randle exited Sunday's Week 2 win over the Titans with a concussion, and is considered day-to-day.

Randle carried the ball three times for 26 yards before leaving in the third quarter. He doesn't have much of an offensive role with DeMarco Murray playing mostly every down. Randle's role would only grow if Murray gets hurt.
Sep 15 - 6:51 PM

Joseph Randle rushed three times for 26 yards in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

He briefly spelled DeMarco Murray in both the first and second quarters. The totes were Randle's first of the season. Lance Dunbar is the Cowboys' clear-cut No. 2 back, but Randle would be in for a nice role were Murray to go down with injury.
Sep 14 - 6:17 PM

Joseph Randle has won the Cowboys' No. 3 running back job.

After looking like a non-NFL player as a rookie, Randle made strides this preseason, displaying improved burst and averaging 4.6 YPC on 20 runs. He beat out Ryan Williams. In the event of a DeMarco Murray injury, Randle would share Dallas' backfield with Lance Dunbar. We prefer the more versatile Dunbar as a handcuff to Murray, though Randle would be worth consideration.
