DeMarco Murray Injury: Joseph Randle Will Excel in RB's Absence
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is inactive for Sunday's division clash with the Philadelphia Eagles because of a bum knee, which means rookie Joseph Randle will start in the Cowboys' backfield in Week 7.
The former Oklahoma State playmaker is sure to excel is in new role this weekend, though.
Sure, the Eagles' have been much better against the run this season than they were a year ago, but there are still plenty of yards to be had against Philadelphia on Sunday. The Eagles are allowing nearly 106 rushing yards per game this season and four yards per carry on average.
Randle only has 11 carries for 17 yards and a touchdown this season, but all of that production came last weekend against the Washington Redskins. He's had a week to practice with the Cowboys' first team and that should allow him to be more comfortable in Week 7.

Plus, with Tony Romo and Dallas' vaunted passing attack forcing Philadelphia's defense to focus on the Cowboys' downfield threats, expect holes and running lanes to open up for Randle.
