Newest Dallas Cowboys running back Robert Turbin went for 35 yards on seven carries in Sunday’s 24-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins. That’s not a box score you cut out and put on your wall, but considering Turbin was signed just four days prior, it was pretty dang impressive.
“The fact that Turbin even knew the plays is impressive," Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said, per Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News. “I reiterated where to go every play, but he already had it. He didn't even need it.”
For his part, Turbin did mention that he appreciated Romo’s help.
"It definitely helps to have Tony there,” Turbin said, “orchestrating everything for me, making sure I knew what I was doing every single play.”
A Utah State product, Turbin was drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 draft by the Seahawks, and backed up Marshawn Lynch there for three years. He spent two months with the Browns this season before being waived and landing with the Cowboys last Wednesday.
