Cowboys running back Tashard Choice doesn’t know how much, or even if, he’ll play Thursday night in the final preseason game.
But he knows this: he wants to play.
“Whatever I get, man, I’m ready to go,” he said after Tuesday’s practice. “I want to play because I want to get back into that rhythm. I was just getting my rhythm when I got a couple of runs in the second half.”
Choice had three carries for 14 yards, but he had two runs of 10-plus yards nullified by penalty.
“We looked on film, and it didn’t look like holding penalties,” he said. “So the guys did well up front. They did a real good job.”
Running backs coach Skip Peete said Choice is not behind, either in fitness or familiarity with the offense, despite missing three weeks with a strained calf.
“He looked like a guy that had fresh legs,” Peete said.
