Does Murray’s injury history suggest the Cowboys to keep four backs?

The Dallas Cowboys running back competition has been heating up all preseason. Of course this is a situation any team would like to have, but that doesn’t make the decision any easier. DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar are locks for first and second on the running backs depth chart, but the third and possibly fourth remains a giant question mark. Given the history of the injuries...

Preseason Primer: Dallas Cowboys visit Miami Dolphins

It’s preseason week three, which means we only have to sit through one more week before “real” football is upon us. I have actually enjoyed the preseason much more this year, but that’s mainly because we still have no idea what this Dallas Cowboys Defense is going to look like come week one. After the saddening news of DeVonte Holloman’s neck forcing him to retire, the...

WATCH: Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams Absolutely Trucks Over Ravens Defensive Back

DeMarco Murray may be the incumbent for the Cowboys, but lets be real here folks--he's okay at best and injured way too often. The 'Boys need another option--and may have found it in former Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams. After an injury-filled and unsuccessful tenure in Arizona he must know that his window is closing. If he doesn't do something to make...

Scouting Report: New Dallas Cowboys’ Running Back Ryan Williams

I love running backs. I love scouting them. I love watching them play. But I also realize that their “value” has decreased in recent years. In back to back years, a running back did not go in the first round. I’ve heard and seen many NFL pundits discuss how running backs are becoming a dying breed in the NFL. I couldn’t disagree more with that statement. We just saw a run...

Arizona Cardinals GM: Ryan Williams cut because he 'was outperformed'

On the other hand, though, he had battled injuries his first two seasons and was inactive for all 16 games...
