Cowboys RB Joseph Randle facing discipline for violating the personal conduct policy

ESPN - [Full Article]

At a time the Cowboys are growing increasingly concerned about Joseph Randle, the Dallas running back is facing discipline for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, according to multiple league sources.

Randle met with NFL investigators this summer and within the past week, the NFL determined he violated the league's personal conduct policy, which now will carry consequences. In a best-case scenario, Randle only will be fined. But more likely he will be suspended, quite possibly for multiple games, for a February incident in Wichita, Kansas, where Randle was arrested for unlawful possession of marijuana after police received a call for a domestic violence with a weapon after an incident with Randle and the mother of his son.

According to the police report, the mother of Randle's son said Randle broke a car window in an argument and threatened her with a gun with their son nearby. In April the charges were dropped, but while legally clear Randle faced sanctions from the NFL.

Fantasy Impact: 

Randle has apparently been demoted and now faces a possible suspension from the league. If he's out, Christine Michael will only be a Darren McFadden injury away from starter's touches behind a good offensive line. For now, McFadden should be a solid RB2 as long as he stays healthy.
