Joseph Randle: Faces added charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle has been charged in Sedgwick County (Kansas) with one count of criminal threat for allegedly threatening a jail deputy last month, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Per ESPN.com, Randle is due back in court on July 6. The running back, who was released by the Cowboys this past November, also has preliminary hearings in two pending felony cases (also in Sedgwick County) on July 26.

Joseph Randle: Arrested again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Following another arrest on Sunday morning, Randle was charged with aggravated battery, drug possession, and criminal damage to property, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Randle cannot avoid breaking the law, as the arrest marks his third since he was released by the Cowboys on Nov. 3, and fifth overall since October of 2014. Booked into Sedgwick County jail in Wichita, Kan. at 8 AM on Sunday, his bail has been set at a lofty $100,000, which could be the final straw in his NFL pursuits. In addition to any legal ramifications, Randle is subject to further suspension for repeated violations of the league's personal conduct policy.

Joseph Randle: Endures another arrest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle was arrested on a warrant for speeding on Monday morning, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Enduring his fourth arrest since October of 2014, Randle's most recent brush with the law didn't have any of the negative connotations associated with the first three. Apparently, he arrived at an ex-girlfriend's residence in Irving, TX early Monday morning searching for a place to sleep on his way to Kansas. However, he wasn't welcome, and an ensuing phone call to the police resulted in their arrival on the scene, where the warrant was discovered for speeding in a school zone. There's been no indication that he's attempting a return to the NFL, but his off-the-field behavior is certainly enough to keep teams from checking in on the 24-year-old running back.

Joseph Randle: Arrested in Kansas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle was reportedly arrested Tuesday night and charged with one felony and five misdemeanors, stemming from what the Dallas Morning News describes as "a dust-up at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kansas."

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: Issued four-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys release RB Joseph Randle on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Running back 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.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Will miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle (personal/back) will not be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the 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.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Excused from the team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Still away from the team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle (back) is still addressing some personal issues and has not returned to the Cowboys' practice facility as of Friday morning, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Randle is still away from the team, so he will sit out practice Friday for the third day in a row. The Cowboys will not reveal his status for Sunday's game until later Friday, but head coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that he does not expect Randle to play in Week 8, and another missed practice certainly does not help Randle's chances.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jason Garrett relayed Thursday that the Cowboys don't expect to have running back Joseph Randle (oblique) suit up Sunday against the Seahawks, per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

Randle is in danger of sitting out "because of his injury" rather than the Thursday morning development that he's facing potential discipline for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

The back has lost his starting spot to Darren McFadden. He is also away from the team due to a "personal issue," according to the team website.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Reportedly faces NFL discipline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, who did not practice Wednesday due to a strained oblique, is reportedly facing discipline for violating the league personal conduct policy, ESPN.com reports.

In a best-case scenario, Randle would only be fined, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggests that he faces a one or two game suspension stemming from his February arrest. Rapoport further notes that his reported violation of the league's personal conduct policy is "firearm and conduct related."

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Leaves team, but will return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle left the Cowboys' practice facility Wednesday afternoon after being informed of his removal from the starting lineup, but he is expected to return to the team Thursday, DallasNews.com reports.

Randle was clearly not pleased with the Cowboys' decision to replace him in the starting lineup with Darren McFadden, and left the team following Wednesday's practice. Later in the evening Randle was able to speak with Cowboys coaches, who convinced him to return to the team Thursday. While Randle will be back with the team, it remains to be seen if he will practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session due to the oblique injury he suffered last week. Moving forward, he was already looking at a reduced role behind McFadden, and his playing time could be further affected by his injury and Wednesday's unexpected departure from the team facility.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle (oblique) didn't practice Wednesday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

During Sunday's loss at the Giants, Randle came down with what was initially termed a strained lower back, but the Cowboys diagnosed the running back with an oblique in the aftermath of the game. Leaving the game early allowed reserve Darren McFadden to get a head of steam, and when the play clock hit zeroes, he had accrued 29 carries for 152 yards. Head coach Jason Garrett stated Wednesday that McFadden has earned the right to start Sunday against the Seahawks, no matter the health of Randle. In the midst of a four-game losing streak, the Cowboys haven't been opposed to making sweeping changes from week-to-week, but Randle's relevance is clearly on the downswing at the moment.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Could miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle (back) is carrying an oblique injury that could sideline him going forward, according to Rand Getlin of NFL Network.

Randle was forced to exit Sunday against the Giants after injuring his back, which reportedly relates to a prior oblique injury from the preseason. Given that situation, it's possible Randle might miss some time due to the injury, but further evaluation on Monday should help sort out his availability.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Doubtful to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is doubtful to return Sunday against the Giants, reports Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas.

Upon his removal, Randle was diagnosed with a lower back strain, but his return to action was deemed probable. Backing up that sentiment was his ability to ride an exercise bike and eventually holding his helmet again on the sideline. However, he'll almost certainly log no more snaps Sunday.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Suffers lower back strain Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Randle suffered a lower back strain Sunday at the Giants but is probable to return, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

After he initially came off the field, Randle was seen riding an exercise bike, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN. An evaluation eventually revealed the diagnosis, and while he appears likely to return, Randle wasn't seen with his helmet on the bench. As long as he's sidelined, Darren McFadden will likely head the backfield, with Christine Michael also factoring into the carry count.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Likely starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph Randle will likely be the Cowboys' starting running back Sunday at the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Heading into the Cowboys' Week 6 bye, there were rumblings that every position would be reconsidered, including a change from Randle to Christine Michael. While coach Jason Garrett decided to entrust the offense in Matt Cassel rather than Brandon Weeden, Randle will stay on as the No. 1 running back Sunday. Randle has received between 11 and 18 carries per game this season, which can be expected to hold steady as long as he remains the starter.

Cowboys' Joseph Randle: Could be replaced as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Christine Michael could get the start at running back in Week 7 rather than Randle, ESPN Dallas reports.

The Cowboys are already switching quarterbacks during their bye week, and are apparently considering other major changes to the offense as well as they prepare to face the Giants next weekend. Randle has had a few big runs over the first five games but also plenty of negative yardage, and if he does give way to Michael his touches could dry up almost completely. The backfield picture should become clearer over the course of the week, but make sure you have Michael or another option stashed if you've been relying on Randle up to now.

Cowboys' Christine Michael: Could replace Randle as Cowboys starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running back Christine Michael could get the start at running back in Week 7 rather than Joseph Randle, per ESPN Dallas.

The Cowboys are already switching quarterbacks during their bye week, and are apparently considering other major changes to the offense as well as they prepare to face the Giants next weekend. The backfield picture should become clearer over the coming days, but if you have a bench spot available, stashing Michael now could pay big dividends.

Michael had just two rushing attempts in two games this year, but owns a 4.8 yards-per-carry average over his career.

Cowboys RB Joseph Randle records15 carries for 60 yards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle ran the ball 15 times for 60 yards and caught all four of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 30-6 loss to New England.

Randle had disappeared in the second half of the previous two games, due to ball security issues, but that was not the case Sunday, as he did not fumble. The entire offense struggled, however, so Randle wasn't really able to get on track. Meanwhile, Darren McFadden had little impact as a runner, but caught 9 of 10 targets for 62 yards. Christine Michael ran just one time for six yards Sunday, but considering Dallas' lack of offensive playmakers, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him get more work soon. The Cowboys have a bye in Week 6, so keep Randle on your bench next week.
