Dallas running back Lance Dunbar suffered a sprained left foot that could keep him out of the Sept. 8 regular-season opener against the New York Giants.
Dunbar is in a protective boot and could need 3-4 weeks to return, according to a source. Dunbar had a 43-yard catch against Arizona last Saturday but fumbled at the end of the play. He returned to the game and did not mention being hurt in the locker room after the 12-7 loss to the Cardinals.
Dunbar is expected to see third-down duties and back up starting RB DeMarco Murray. The story also reminded us that Murray's sprained foot last season caused him to miss six games last. Joseph Randle is next up on the depth chart and has played pretty well in preseason games thus far.
