Free agent RB Joseph Randle denied a report he was cut by the Cowboys in November in part because he was betting on sports.
The Dallas Morning News reported Randle was involved in sports betting during the season, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said there was no evidence Randle ever bet on NFL games. In a text to The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Randle said there was "no truth at all" to the allegations. Randle was suspended four games for violating the league's personal conduct policy after being released, but NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello said the league did not investigate Randle for sports betting. Randle was arrested Monday morning on a speeding warrant. It was his fourth arrest in the last 17 months. Feb 2 - 9:12 AM

Free agent RB Joseph Randle was arrested on a speeding warrant early Monday morning.

Irving Police spokesperson James McLellan said Randle stopped by his ex-girlfriend's house early Monday morning to get some sleep before driving home to Kansas. Randle was "not welcome there" and the residents called the police. The police ran a warrant check after arriving and determined Randle was wanted for speeding in Coppell, a suburb of Dallas. This is the fourth time Randle has been arrested since October of 2014.

Suspended free agent RB Joseph Randle was arrested at a Kansas casino Tuesday night.

He's facing several charges, including felony criminal threats, misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer, battery, and disorderly conduct. Randle was reportedly told to leave the casino because he was too drunk. On the way out, he spit on the floor and "went berserk" on the cops. Randle has a history of legal troubles and is still in custody on $25,000 bail.

NFL suspended free agent RB Joseph Randle four games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.

The ban stems from Randle's February arrest for a domestic dispute. Randle can now kiss any odds he had of earning a 2015 second chance goodbye. The troubled running back will come off suspension in Week 14. That's when he should start focusing his efforts toward finding a new home for next season.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports teams interested in signing free agent RB Joseph Randle have not been able to clarify his status with the league.

Randle is reportedly facing a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy during a domestic dispute in February, but no official announcement has been made. The good news for Randle is teams are still interested, but it would not be surprising if he sits out the rest of the season to get his life in order. Randle should get another shot once his off-field issues are resolved.

Free agent RB Joseph Randle went unclaimed on waivers.

He's free to sign with any team. Randle had four touchdowns and averaged 4.1 YPC in six games with Dallas, but needs to clear his off-field issues before getting a second chance.

Cowboys waived RB Joseph Randle.

Randle started the first six games of the season, but was ineffective, averaging just 53 yards per contest and 4.1 yards per carry. Then he injured his oblique and skipped out on a practice. Owner Jerry Jones said he was concerned about Randle's mental health. Randle has had multiple off-the-field issues. His release locks Darren McFadden in as the Cowboys' bell-cow, and creates an every-week role for Christine Michael as a change of pace. Randle is only 23, but it could be a while before he gets a second chance.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team is "not planning" for Joseph Randle to play Sunday.

Randle is struggling through an oblique injury and multiple off-field concerns. It remains a distinct possibility Randle does not play again for the Cowboys this season. He can be dropped in 10-team leagues.

Jerry Jones said team counselors are helping Joseph Randle (abdomen) work through his personal issues.

"I'm always concerned as to any issues regarding the [mental] health of a player," Jones said. "It's a lot more serious than the football [injury] and that's why he's not dressed out." Joseph Randle reportedly called the police on his own house recently to have it "checked on," and admitted to cops he is feeling "paranoid." He was also demoted and found out he is likely to be punished for violating the league's personal contact policy in the last week. It remains possible Randle does not see the field again this season.

Cowboys declared RB Joseph Randle, WR Brice Butler, G Ronald Leary, QB Kellen Moore, CB Tyler Patmon, DE Ryan Russell and TE Geoff Swaim inactive for Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Randle (abdomen) was ruled out earlier this week and it's unclear when he'll be back. Darren McFadden should be close to an every-down back in his absence. Dez Bryant (foot), Barry Church (ankle), Morris Claiborne (illness), James Hanna (ankle) and Demarcus Lawrence (back) are all active for the Cowboys.

Joseph Randle reportedly called the police on his own house recently to have it "checked on," and admitted to cops he is feeling "paranoid."

No wrongdoing was found, but per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys are "concerned about (Randle's) well-being." Randle flopped in an opportunity to win Dallas' feature back role, then apparently lost it mentally. He is also dealing with an oblique injury and facing a one- or two-game suspension stemming from a February 2015 domestic incident. It's conceivable we won't see Randle play much -- or at all -- for the rest of this year.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 08:47:00 AM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett ruled Joseph Randle (strained oblique) out for Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Randle was never expected to play because of injury, but he now faces league discipline for a domestic incident in February and possibly team discipline for going AWOL after practice Wednesday. Darren McFadden will be close to an every-down player this week against Seattle.

The NFL has determined Joseph Randle violated the personal conduct policy during a domestic incident in February.

Randle was arrested for unlawful possession of marijuana after an incident in which the mother of Randle's son claimed he broke a car window and threatened her with a gun during an altercation. The charges were dropped, but the NFL is still taking action. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Todd Archer report Randle could escape with a fine, but a one- or two-game suspension is more likely. Randle went AWOL from the Cowboys' facility Wednesday after learning he had been demoted. Darren McFadden looks like he will be the starter in Dallas for the foreseeable future.

Joseph Randle skipped a scheduled treatment on his strained oblique Wednesday because he was upset about losing his starting job to Darren McFadden.

The biggest piece of news here might be that Randle was demoted. Owner Jerry Jones said in a radio interview Darren McFadden would start this week, but it appears a more permanent change has been made atop the depth chart. Randle has reportedly "worked through his disappointment" and will meet with the coaching staff Thursday. With Randle's oblique injury likely to sideline him this week, McFadden will be close to an every-down player and a solid RB2 even in a tough matchup.
Thu, Oct 29, 2015 08:26:00 AM

Joseph Randle (oblique) is not practicing Wednesday.

NFL Network's Rand Getlin previously reported Monday that the Cowboys expect Randle to "miss some time." If he sits Week 8 against the Seahawks, Darren McFadden would be a candidate for at least 20 touches and upward of 25. McFadden is a strong RB2, even in a tough matchup.
