Jerry Jones: Cowboys Will Activate RB Darren McFadden from NFI

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

Now, Jerry Jones 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 injured reserve list.

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

In McFadden’s absence, first-year Cowboy Alfred Morris 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 Cowboys Nation 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.
