During the bye last week, the Dallas Cowboys announced that they planned to get Christine Michael, a powerful running back acquired in a trade with the Seahawks the week before the opener, more involved in the offense.
That likely means he’ll take some carries from Joseph Randle.
But Randle isn’t about to worry over his workload.
"I just want to make sure that I'm out there every opportunity I get, whether they're throwing it to me or handing me the ball that I'm trying to make sure that I'm running the ball and doing the best things I can do to help the team win," Randle said, per the Dallas Morning News. "As far as all the other stuff goes, that's out of my control. I'm not going to worry about nothing that I can't control."
Through five games as the Cowboys’ top option at running back, Randle is averaging about 15 carries and just under 60 yards per game. He also has four touchdowns, but he’s never grabbed the job and made it his, as many thought he would with DeMarco Murray gone.
"I just want to be somebody good around the locker room that's not always mad about this and mad about that, making sure that I'm not a cancer in this locker room," Randle said. "So I'm not going to be the one complaining for carries and all this different stuff like that. That's not how I'm going to play."
