Darren McFadden fractured his elbow and underwent surgery in mid-June. As of mid-August, it appears that McFadden is on track to return by Week 1.

Summary

Darren McFadden resurrected his career in his first season in Dallas thanks to a change of scenery and a dominant offensive line. He hadn't run for 1,000 yards in five seasons but ended up becoming Dallas' workhorse and only reliable contributor to an offense that finished 31st in points. Although he only found the end zone three times (more of a byproduct of the offenses' ineptitude), he had a terrific season with 1,417 yards from scrimmage. Unfortunately, the eight year veteran was rewarded for his hard work with a significant step up in competition. Dallas' selection of Ezekiel Elliott with the 4th overall pick and Alfred Morris' strong preseason knock McFadden all the way down the depth chart. (August 27)
