  • Darren McFadden: Announces retirement

    McFadden announced Tuesday that he is retiring from the NFL.

    This decision comes just two days after McFadden and the Cowboys agreed to mutually part ways, as the tailback officially decides to end a career that was slowed by injuries. McFadden finishes his professional career with 5,421 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns, but he only managed to play 103 games across 10 NFL seasons.

  • Darren McFadden: Parting ways with Dallas

    The Cowboys will waive McFadden after the two sides mutually agreed to part ways, Todd Archer of reports.

    McFadden has been stuck at fourth on the depth chart at running back all season, and even with starter Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) missing the Cowboys' last three contests, head coach Jason Garrett hasn't elected to keep McFadden active for the past two games. With an opportunity to play meaningful snaps unlikely to come McFadden's way barring an injury to either Alfred Morris or Rod Smith, the Cowboys elected to cut the veteran and allow him to pursue his options elsewhere.

  • Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Not active Thursday

    McFadden (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game versus the Chargers, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    As the Cowboys enter a third game without the suspended Ezekiel Elliott, McFadden will remain in street clothes for the second game in a row. Without an injury to Alfred Morris or Rod Smith, McFadden is unlikely to make an appearance before Elliott returns in Week 16.

  • Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Inactive for SNF

    McFadden is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    After playing just one snap in the first game during Ezekiel Elliott's six-week suspension, McFadden finds himself relegated to the inactive list, where he's resided for most of the season. The Cowboys would turn to fullback Keith Smith as an emergency backup tailback if Alfred Morris or Rod Smith were to suffer an injury.

  • Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Barely used Sunday

    McFadden carried the ball once for minus-2 yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

    With Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) unavailable, McFadden was the clear No. 3 in the Cowboys backfield behind Alfred Morris and Rod Smith, although his limited usage may have been partially due to the team's need for extra pass protection with left tackle Tyron Smith (groin) also out of action. McFadden may see a few more touches next week against the Eagles, but it's unlikely he'll suddenly become a major part of the Dallas offense.

  • Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Should be a factor Sunday

    McFadden will be active following the reinstatement of Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension Thursday, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

    McFadden has been a healthy scratch for the first half of the season as Alfred Morris served as Elliott's backup and Rod Smith contributed on special teams. Thursday's decision ensures McFadden will be available out of the Cowboys backfield Sunday in Atlanta, but there's no guarantee he'll supersede Morris or Smith in the pecking order.

  • Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Stuck behind Elliott again

    McFadden could be inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs after starting running back Ezekiel Elliott was granted a temporary stay of his six-game suspension Friday, Dan Graziano of reports.

    A healthy scratch all season, McFadden was expected to play in Sunday's game, though he would have still been behind Alfred Morris and likely Rod Smith in the pecking order. Since the Cowboys aren't likely to keep four running backs active with Elliott now eligible to play in the contest, McFadden will likely be left as the odd man out.
