The Dallas Cowboys have an embarrassment of riches at running back, but they plan on being fully stacked for their playoff run.
According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys are nearly ready to activate veteran running back Darren McFadden to the 53-man roster. The Cowboys recently took McFadden off the NFI (Non-Football Injury) List after he suffered a fractured elbow in an off the field accident.
McFadden wound up taking a spill while poolside, after attempting to save his IPhone from falling over Memorial Day weekend.
The NFL allows for 21 days of practice time before the team is forced to make a call on McFadden, but it appears they're not going to wait that long to do so.
A former first round draft selection of the Oakland Raiders, McFadden has battled injuries throughout his career. Last season, he was pretty durable for the Cowboys, appearing in all 16 games. He made ten starts, and ran for over 1,000 yards.
There's a feeling McFadden may be looking to compete for a bigger role in the backfield, although how realistic that is at this stage of his career remains to be seen. His best season was back in 2010 as a member of the Oakland Raiders.
