McFadden in question for RB-thin Cowboys
IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas running back Darren McFadden is questionable against Miami with a groin injury, and his expected backups are both undrafted rookies with two combined carries this season.
McFadden was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Friday after he wasn’t listed on the first injury report of the week Wednesday.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on his radio show that the team was being cautious with the oft-injured eighth-year player.
Rod Smith had two carries with Seattle before the Seahawks waived him and the Cowboys picked him up. Dallas signed Trey Williams off Washington’s practice squad.
McFadden’s status could force Robert Turbin into action even though the fourth-year back has only been with the team since Wednesday.
