If you can believe it, Dallas Cowboys fans, the team lost another running back to injury. Joseph Randle was at practice today, but was not able to finish. From the Dallas Morning News:
Joseph Randle was the latest to stand off to the side. He began the session but was forced to the sidelines early with a strained oblique muscle on his right side.
"We're going to go in here and figure out what we've got to do to get it back right so I can get back out here,'' Randle said.
The injury isn't considered serious.
The Cowboys have a preseason game coming up this week, and it doesn't look like they'll have any of their main three guys ready to go. It was unlikely they were planning to play Randle much in the game anyway, but now they likely won't even risk it. Earlier this week it was reported that Darren McFadden won't practice until after the preseason game, and Lance Dunbar has missed five straight practices with his strained ankle. But, he was working the resistance bands in today's practice.

Going into the San Diego game, the Cowboys will have to give backups Gus Johnson and Lache Seastrunk plenty of reps. Fullback Tyler Clutts could see some action, and it's not out of the realm the Cowboys bring in a fresh set of legs just to take some reps.
