I officially deem today Good News Saturday.
Cleared and ready to go!! God is GOOD!!
Lance Dunbar was a huge part of the Dallas Cowboys offense in 2015 before he tore both his ACL and MCL in his left knee on a kick return in New Orleans on October 4th (322 days ago).
Just how “huge” was Dunbar to America’s Team a year ago? In 4 games Dunbar caught 21 passes for 215 yards, putting him on pace for most receptions in a season ever by a Cowboys running back, not to mention he practically was the entire drive when the Cowboys came back at home against the Giants in Week 1’s epic victory.
Lance’s status on the 2016 Cowboys has been widely speculated all offseason. The Cowboys signed Alfred Morris, drafted both Ezekiel Elliott and Darius Jackson, and feature last year’s 4th Leading Rusher in Darren McFadden. What’s kept Dunbar relevant is how unique his contributions are, and we’re one step closer to seeing those put into action this season.
Dunbar being cleared to return to practice is only going to make the Cowboys offense all the more potent. Celebrate accordingly, Cowboys Nation. It’s a good day to be us!
