Darren McFadden's career with the Dallas Cowboys didn't get off to a great start. The running back was sidelined for most of the team's OTA and mini-camp practices with a strained hamstring. After taking off several weeks, McFadden is feeling healthy again and ready to go when the Cowboys open up training camp in a little over a month from now.
"It's doing great," McFadden told Steve Rogers of his hamstring, per the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette. "I feel like I had a decent mini-camp, so I'm just looking forward to putting in my work and getting ready for training camp."
McFadden will enter training camp behind Joseph Randle on the depth chart at running back, and he could also be behind Lance Dunbar. Since his breakout 2011 season, McFadden has struggled to remain productive on a per touch basis. Many believe that the Cowboys' offensive line can be a great catalyst for a runner like McFadden, because although he struggles to make defenders miss, he is lightning fast when running downhill.
