Which Cowboys Running Back Could Potentially Be Inactive On Sunday?

    This has been quite a week on for fans.

    We've all spent some time on either or Facebook, tossing our collective two cents in the and discussion. When the Cowboys waived Darius Jackson earlier in the week, we had a new point to squabble over.

    has since been claimed by the Cleveland Browns, and many speculated that – who was promoted to the – would eat the snaps normally assigned to from this point forward. This would allow the Cowboys to keep in his normal role, as the presumed snap-stealer when he rests, and Darren McFadden doing the Dunbar thing.

    That assumption might prove to be incorrect if the Cowboys choose to only roll with three running backs against the Buccaneers (and from this point forward?) on Sunday. A recent suggests that there could be a surprise inactive when it comes to the running backs – Alfred Morris.

    The Cowboys currently have three running backs that have run for over a thousand yards at different points in NFL : Zeke (this season), Darren McFadden (as recently as last year with the Cowboys), and Alfred Morris (his first three seasons in the league, all with Washington). You would assume those would be the three, but apparently the Cowboys feel they can get more from Dunbar than they can from Morris.

    When I was on ESPN San Antonio's The Blitz earlier this week, I asked why they used Lance Dunbar so frequently during last week's loss in New York. He said that Dunbar is their two-minute drill back and they felt like they were in those types of situations throughout the game. Perhaps the Cowboys would rather save Dunbar for that potential instance than to keep Morris for any other use?

    Alfred Morris has served as the primary back when Ezekiel Elliott gets rest on the sidelines. The Cowboys have certainly proven that they believe in Darren McFadden a great deal, so perhaps this simply an even swap as far as those two running backs are concerned.
