Joseph Randle still absent from Cowboys

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Cowboys won’t have running back Joseph Randle on Sunday against the Seahawks, and it’s hard to know exactly when he’ll be back.

Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram explains that Randle remains absent from the team. He left the team abruptly on Wednesday, claiming to be worried about the safety of his girlfriend.

Meanwhile, the NFL continues to review Randle for potential discipline under the Personal Conduct Policy, arising from an offseason allegation of domestic violence.

“The NFL is reviewing at this time, as a matter of fact today, reviewing his issue he had last spring in Wichita that cleared the legal and cleared the law enforcement of Wichita, but still the NFL’s conduct policy has other aspects to it and so they’ve been reviewing that,” owner Jerry Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, via Hill. “That could have some consequences.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Randle’s absence gives Darren McFadden more opportunities to cement his position at the top of the depth chart, the story said, at least for the short term. McFadden rushed for 152 yards last Sunday in a loss to the Giants.
