Sidelined for OTAs after undergoing offseason thumb surgery, Cowboys’ fifth round pick, running back Joseph Randle, is left to hit the books--and though he admittedly has a lot to learn in jumping from the college game to the NFL, the Oklahoma State product is confident he’ll be ready to go when the cast comes off.
“Learning the playbook is always first,” Randle said this week, per the Dallas Morning News. “The plays are a little more complex than my old (college) offense, but I’ll pick up on it. It’ll be good.”
The favorite for the No. 2 running back spot on the depth chart behind DeMarco Murray, Randle told reporters this week that his cast should be removed in two weeks, and that he should be good to go when training camp opens in July.
“I’m ready to get it off,” Randle said of the cast.
We’re sure the Cowboys’ coaches agree.
