On Thanksgiving Day of 2013, Dallas Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar put together the best performance of his career thus far--94 all-purpose yards, including 82 on 12 carries--before going down with a season-ending knee injury. It was a gut-punch of an injury, considering Dunbar seemed on his way to a greater role in the Dallas backfield before going down, but he entered this offseason optimistic.
Dunbar said this week that he is healthy, and that he’s been a full participant in the offseason program since it started back in April.
“I’ve been working hard this offseason trying to get my knee back right,” Dunbar said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I was able to do that and I’m feeling pretty good. I’ve been doing everything fine. No problems. I wouldn’t be out there [during OTAs] if I was still hurting.”
The always speedy Dunbar believes he’s coming back stronger than ever--and maybe speedier, too.
“I’ve been working hard, trying to get it back right,” Dunbar said. “I might be faster, I’m not sure, but I know I’m stronger.”
