Jerry Jones: Cowboys Will Activate RB Darren McFadden from NFI

The 2016 rushing attack – spearheaded by rookie sensation – has been nothing short of dominant. Elliott has been so good, that he's made veteran a forgotten man following his pre- elbow , although McFadden was fourth in the league in rushing for the Cowboys in 2015.

Now, expects his fellow Arkansas Razorback in McFadden to once again find the active roster – coming off of NFI sometime this week. When he does, McFadden will have a 21-day window to practice with the team before a decision has to be made on his return to the field or movement to the list.

The Cowboys will also have the same decision to make by Tuesday for TE and LB .

In McFadden's absence, first-year Cowboy has served as Elliott's backup – seeing a decrease in his workload as Elliott has greatly distanced the gap between himself and this former-Redskin. Now, McFadden may get a chance to compete for reps with Morris, a competition expected to see in training camp.

Zeke Elliott leads the league in rushing for the first-place Dallas Cowboys. The 4-12 Cowboys from a year ago also had a pretty good runner, and he's about to be back on the field with Elliott.

Run. The. Rock.
