Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan said the Cowboys will use definitely use rookie Joseph Randle on Sunday, and maybe in new ways.
“We’re going to use him intelligently,” Callahan said Thursday at Valley Ranch. “We’ll put him in different spots, different locations and kind of change him from what he’s been doing from a scheme standpoint.”
Callahan might just be throwing a smokescreen at the Philadelphia Eagles. He also left open the idea that DeMarco Murray, sidelined last week by a sprained knee, and Lance Dunbar, out two weeks with a hamstring injury, might play.
“We’ll see what happens by tomorrow, see if we can’t get one up for the game,” Callahan said.
Phillip Tanner could also get action at running back, and Callahan said tight end James Hanna might play a role, also.
“Of course, it’s important that they continue to play well on special teams,” Callahan said. “Phillip has been instrumental in that phase of the game. He continues to be. James Hanna has been in the backfield a little bit as a protecting guy. We’ve got some guys that can roll in there, help if need be.”
