Don’t Forget About RB Jordan Chunn in the Dallas Cowboys Backfield

With currently M.I.A. from Dallas all eyes have been on , , , and even for that matter. But nobody’s talking about second-year Running Back Jordan Chunn, who spent last year on the Cowboys . That could be changing after the way he performed at Dallas’ Blue/White Scrimmage on Sunday, August 4.

It would seem that Jordan Chunn is still very much in the running back competition, despite the Cowboys two draft picks (Pollard and Weber) receiving the majority of the attention and headlines. This could shape up to be a pretty interesting while Ezekiel Elliott continues his in the hopes of a .

One thing is for sure though, I’m going to be paying much closer attention to how No. 46 performs the rest of training camp and .
