Description: According to ESPN Dallas, Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar didn't play in the first preseason game because the team thinks he'll be a big part of its offense.
Insight: Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, DeMarco Murray and Orlando Scandrick all sat out as well despite being healthy. "Certainly we have a good feel for what (Dunbar) can do," coach Jason Garrett said. "We just want to be selective with certain guys in preseason. DeMarco Murray did not play in the game. We felt the same way about Dunbar. As the preseason goes along, both those guys will get plenty of work. But he's a very good football player. He shows us that whenever he gets a chance in practice here in training camp, as he has when he has had game opportunities in the past." Scott Linehan, Dallas' new offensive coordinator, had two fantasy-worthy backs in Reggie Bush and Joique Bell with the Lions last season, so it's conceivable Dunbar could have a Bell-like impact. However, unlike Bell he won't get goal-line carries.

Description: Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar is indeed done for the season.
Insight: According to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News, Dunbar has a posterior corner in his left knee. Dunbar acknowledged that he'll need surgery in the near future. His absence should give DeMarco Murray a slight boost in the fantasy rankings.

Insight: Dunbar left Thursday's game in the fourth quarter with what the team is calling a "hyperextension" of his left knee. The Cowboys have used Dunbar as a change of pace back throughout the season. DeMarco Murray will see a bigger workload if Dunbar is out for the year.

Description: Cowboys second-year running back Lance Dunbar will have an MRI on Friday to evaluate a hyperextended left knee suffered in Thursday's game with Oakland
Insight: Dunbar was running and catching the ball very well, accumulating 94 yards on 13 touches.

Description: Cowboys second-year running back Lance Dunbar (sprained left foot) was ready for opening night, but should be the backup to DeMarco Murray in Week 2.
Insight: Dunbar beat out fifth-round pick Joseph Randle for the backup job, but Phillip Tanner got the job in Week 1 when Dunbar wasn't ready to go.

Description: Cowboys second-year running back Lance Dunbar (sprained left foot) will not be ready for opening night.
Insight: Dunbar beat out fifth-round pick Joseph Randle for the backup job, but Randle and Phillip Tanner will handle that role Sunday against the Giants.
 
8/19/2013 2:03:00 PM
Description: Cowboys second-year running back Lance Dunbar will miss 3-4 weeks with a sprained left foot.
Insight: Dunbar had run past 2013 fifth-rounder Joseph Randle in the battle to be oft-injured DeMarco Murray's backup/handcuff, but now that is in question for the first few weeks of the season.
 
7/29/2013 8:07:00 PM
Description: According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys second-year running back Lance Dunbar has "zoomed past" 2013 fifth-rounder Joseph Randle in the battle to be DeMarco Murray's backup.
Insight: Phillip Tanner also has been more consistent than Randle. Dunbar appears to be the handcuff to target for Murray owners. Murray has missed nine games over his first two seasons due to injuries.

Description: Dallas Cowboys halfback Lance Dunbar underwent a minor knee procedure after Sunday's win over Cleveland and is doubtful for Thursday's game against Washington
Insight: With DeMarco Murray not expected to play and Dunbar doubtful, the backup role for Felix Jones will likely fall to Phillip Tanner.
 
11/19/2012 3:49:00 PM
Description: ESPN Dallas is reporting that Cowboys halfback Lance Dunbar underwent a minor knee procedure after Sunday's win over Cleveland.
Insight: This puts his status in question for Thursday's game against Washington. Dunbar isn't really a usable fantasy player anyway, especially with DeMarco Murray slated to return from injury any week now. For now, Felix Jones will handle most of the rushing work for Dallas with Phillip Tanner getting a carry or two here and there as a change of pace back.
 
11/5/2012 1:51:00 PM
Description: Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar, not Phillip Tanner, shared the backfield workload with Felix Jones on Sunday night against Atlanta. Dunbar rushed eight times for 26 yards.
Insight: Heading into Sunday's contest, Dunbar had one carry on the season. Whether Dunbar gets more opportunities will be determined by the health of DeMarco Murray. If Murray returns in Week 10 we won't likely see much of Mr. Dunbar again.
