The Dallas Cowboys waived running back Lache Seastrunk on Thursday, just two months after he was signed to shore up the stable of running backs in training camp, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
A sixth round pick by the Redskins in 2014, Seastrunk was never able to capitalize on the injuries that befell Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar in the first couple weeks of camp, and was seemingly leapfrogged by Gus Johnson in the three weeks since Johnson signed.
To wit, in the preseason opener, Johnson handled all the carries until he had to exit with a shoulder injury. After that, Seastrunk came in and went for 16 yards on five carries. His spot certainly began to look precarious this week when Dallas added running backs Ben Malena and Michael Hill.
The Cowboys were Seastrunk’s fourth team in the NFL, having been previously cut by the Redskins, the Titans and the Panthers.
The move was one of a handful made by Dallas on Thursday. They also waived cornerback Brandon Smith and receivers Reggie Dunn and Deontay Greenberry. They claimed defensive back Rod Sweeting off waivers from the Buffalo Bills.
