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."
"I’ve been able to do everything now for a couple of weeks without any restrictions," he told the paper. "I’m feeling pretty good. I’d definitely say I’m 100 percent.”
Dunbar is expected to be Dallas' No. 2 back behind DeMarco Murray.
Dunbar injured his knee during the Thanksgiving Day game last year against Oakland. Dunbar will compete with Joseph Randle for the No. 2 running back job in Dallas this year behind DeMarco Murray.
