Cowboys Officially Activate Darren McFadden


Finally, Darren McFadden is back in the Cowboys’ lineup. The team announced that he is being activated from the reserve/NFI list. To make room, rookie running back Darius Jackson has been let go.

McFadden will now be available for the Cowboys’ Week 15 game against the Buccaneers. Ezekiel Elliott obviously remains the No. 1 back in Dallas, but McFadden could get carries if the team decides to rest the star rookie heading into the playoffs. McFadden could also chip away at Alfred Morris‘ workload. McFadden, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2008 draft, was the NFL’s fourth-leading rusher in 2015.

Somebody had to go in order to make room for McFadden, but the decision to drop Jackson is a bit surprising. The Cowboys will probably look to re-sign the sixth-round pick out of Eastern Michigan to the practice squad if he goes unclaimed, but that’s far from a certainty.
