IRVING, Texas– Running back Joseph Randle is expected to miss his second consecutive game this Sunday night against the Eagles, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan.
Randle was inactive against the Seahawks this past Sunday after straining his oblique the previous game against the Giants. He also was excused from team activities last week to handle a personal matter.
"We're not planning on Joseph playing Sunday," team owner/general manager Jerry Jones said, declining to speculate further on Randle's status going forward.
On the players' off day Monday, head coach Jason Garrett took a similar day-to-day approach with Randle's status.
"He's not back with the team right now," Garrett said. "We'll take that situation day by day."
In six games, Randle has 76 carries for 315 yards (4.1 avg.) and four touchdowns. He had two carries for 24 yards in the first quarter against the Giants before exiting with the oblique injury.
In his absence, Darren McFadden has gained 216 yards on 49 carries the last two games.
