The upcoming game of the Dallas Cowboys against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday has sparked legitimate concerns over the playing capacity of the Dallas NFL team. Getting into the season NFL preseason game, the Dallas Cowboys appear to be ill equipped to compete with the San Francisco 49ers. To date, the Dallas Cowboys have lost four offensive line starters to injury. Apart from these the NFL team failed to keep two of their three most notable receivers healthy. The Dallas Cowboys also saw two of its top three tight ends get injured.
With all these injuries in mind, the Dallas Cowboys starting roster is now in dire need of offensive starters. Apart from this concern, the fact that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo managed to stay in tip top shape during the offseason and the NFL practice games begs the question: Will he still be starting for the Dallas Cowboys in the match against San Francisco 49ers despite the absence of the top offensive starters?
According to Stephen Jones, the executive vice president of the Dallas Cowboys, the idea of putting Tony Romo in the game on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers is ridiculous. Pointing out that such risk on the Dallas Cowboys' top quarterback will "impact" the NFL team, Jones gave an absolute rejection of the idea of including Tony Romo in the lineup against the San Francisco 49ers this weekend. The Dallas Cowboys executive vice president said, "You're not going to put Tony in there with the wrong guys."
As it is made clear that the management of the Dallas Cowboys behind Tony Romo, the same could be said regarding Darren McFadden. Jones also apparently believes in the ability of the running back to boost the performance of the Dallas Cowboys. With this in mind, the fans and followers of the Dallas Cowboys are eager to see Darren McFadden back in the field. Hopefully, the Dallas Cowboys running back will be back in action this Sunday in the match against the San Francisco 49ers.
The possibility of Darren McFadden getting back in action becomes even more tangible after the injury incurred by Dallas Cowboys top running back Joseph Randle on Thursday. Due to the oblique strain he suffered from in the past week, Joseph Randle had to cut his practice with the Dallas Cowboys short and sit out the rest of the session. Needless to say, the recurrence of his injury will see Joseph Randle absent in the match of the Dallas Cowboys against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Hence, it looks like this is the perfect time and opportunity for Darren McFadden to finally step up.
"Football is one of those games where it's the next man up, so anytime somebody goes down another guy has to step up and right now we've been experiencing that a lot lately," shared Darren McFadden, referring to the possibility of him taking the place of Joseph Randle in the of the Dallas Cowboys against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. He added, "We just have to keep pushing. We'll have everybody back out there soon, but right now, just the next guy has to be ready."
