Despite having been sidelined for all of the offseason while rehabbing his surgically repaired thumb, Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle believes he took quite a bit from spending these past months with the team, focusing on conditioning and the mental aspect of the game.
“Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been putting in some good work,” Randle told the team’s official website. “There’s a lot of other things I can be doing, and I can’t be concerned with what I can’t do right now. I’m getting a lot of great conditioning in.”
Randle only recently got the cast on his thumb off and, with less than a month remaining until training camp, he believes he’s in good shape to step in and make his presence felt alongside DeMarco Murray, Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner.
“I think I’ll be coming into the year in the best shape I’ve ever been in--physically, and all of that,” Randle said. “Learning the playbook, too--we’ve been grinding on the plays. Because you won’t be on the field anyway if you don’t know the plays.”
