Both players will take on Washington Week 8.
Dunbar also rushed once for minus-4 yards. They'll take on the Giants in Week 7.
"DeMarco was out there and we think that's probably too many carries in the game, week in and week out," Garrett told the website. "He ended up with 31 [Sunday], so we'd like to get that number lower. We'd really just like to get the other guys an opportunity. I don't see any wear and tear in DeMarco, but having said that, we want to make sure we create a rotation and we'll focus on doing that in the next few weeks."
Speaking of Murray, Garrett added: "We've got to make sure we take care of him over the course of the season, but we'd do that with any player."
The Cowboys will take on the Titans Week 2.
"Well, he's a guy that's going to be a complete weapon. We can line him up anywhere on the team -- tailback spot, at the wide receiver spot, in the slot. He has tremendous hands and he's just not a specialty guy. He could play tailback if you need him to go out there and give you 15 or 20 carries. He's that type of kid," Dallas running backs coach Gary Brown said. "He brings a whole different dimension, a whole different vibe in our room as far as what he does and we're looking forward to using him as a weapon as well."
Brown compared Dunbar, who is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind DeMarco Murray, to Danny Woodhead and Darren Sproles.
"Everybody would like to have a guy like Dunbar. You look at the Sproles type guy. You look at guys around the league like Woodhead from San Diego. They all have them," Brown said. "Not everybody has them but we all want them. Once you find one, you've got to find things for him to do and you've got to make sure that he's involved in the gameplan."
