The 23-year-old has seemingly been allergic to positive press over the last two years, and this latest brush with the law won't help his cause as he looks for another opportunity in the NFL. If Randle ends up signing anywhere in the offseason, he'd have to serve a four-game suspension stemming from his violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy, a ban that was handed down by the league shortly after he was released by the Cowboys earlier in November.
Joseph Randle has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Randle has not joined a team since being released by the Cowboys last week, but he will be forced to sit out four games if and when he does sign a new contract. Given the personal issues he is dealing with and the pending suspension, Randle will not be making a fantasy impact anytime soon.
Joseph Randle (back/personal) was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Between injuries, personal issues and a possible looming suspension, Randle already seemed unlikely to play again in 2015. He had the first shot to replace DeMarco Murray in the Dallas backfield, but Randle ultimately managed just 76 carries for 315 yards (4.1 YPC) and four touchdowns in six games behind a top-notch offensive line. Darren McFadden handled most of the workload the past two games and will likely continue to do so in Week 9 against the Eagles, with Christine Michael and Rod Smith providing depth. Randle is unlikely to draw interest from another team this season.
Joseph Randle (personal/back) will not be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Dallas Cowboys ' official site reports.
Randle is uncertain to return before the end of the season, with injuries, a personal issue and a possible suspension all hanging over his head. At the very least, he'll miss Sunday's divisional matchup, leaving Darren McFadden as the clear lead back against a tough Eagles defense.
Joseph Randle (strained oblique) -- who reportedly could be facing a one or two-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy -- is excused from the team and is thus slated to be inactive for the Dallas Cowboys ' game against the Seahawks on Sunday, as he deals with what is described as a personal issue, NFL.com reports.
While Randle's status for this Sunday has been clarified, the running back's availability beyond Week 8 remains unclear. As a result, this weekend -- and quite possibly beyond -- the Cowboys are in line to roll with a ground game headed by Darren McFadden, with Christine Michael and Rod Smith also on hand to see complementary/reserve action in the team's backfield.
