It’s a question that’s been asked countless times by Cowboys fans this season: What will it take for Tashard Choice to get a chance to crack the running back rotation?
The answer is apparently an injury that sidelines Felix Jones or Marion Barber.
Choice’s chance could be coming next weekend in Indianapolis. Barber will benefit from a few extra days of rest, but the left calf strain he suffered late in Thursday’s loss to the Saints will likely cause him to miss one or two games.
Most third-string running backs don't have the pedigree of Choice. He's proven and fantasy owners should pick him up if Barber is going to miss time.
