Darren McFadden didn’t do a whole lot in his preseason debut with the Dallas Cowboys, but after being held out of the opener against the Chargers in San Diego, the veteran was just glad to be back on the field.
“For me, I’m just glad I was able to get out there and run around with my teammates and fight with them,” McFadden said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We didn’t get the thing accomplished that we wanted to accomplish out there but it’s something that we got to come back and look at the film and try to correct these things and get better for next week.”
McFadden went for just four yards on three carries, and added a three-yard reception to bring his all-purpose total on Sunday night to seven yards. But the veteran, who came to the Cowboys as a free agent in March after seven seasons with the Raiders, doesn’t believe the time he missed this offseason and in camp with a pair of hamstring issues has him behind his teammates, or where he’d normally be around this time of year.
“For me, I don’t feel like I’m behind at all,” McFadden said. “It’s one of those things that you have to get your reps and get your feet back under you. I feel like these last couple weeks I’ve been doing that.”
