Dallas rookie RB Joseph Randle would get the first crack at the full-time job for however long DeMarco Murray misses.
Randle had just 17 yards on 11 carries against the Redskins, but HC Jason Garrett will not condemn the numbers because of how Washington was selling out to stop the run late in the game.
Many feel Lance Dunbar would normally get the start with no Murray in the lineup, but Dunbar has a hamstring injury and has yet to run since getting hurt in the Denver game. Dunbar is not expected to play this week. Phillip Tanner is the only other back on the 53-man roster. We've seen reports that Murray will be out and others that said he's still questionable, so it's a situation to monitor. If you're a Murray owner, Randle is the RB to pick up if you're in a bind and it's an attractive matchup against the Eagles defense. This week's game is an early start, so we'll know Murray's status in advance.
