The Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers start their 2015 journey as they play their first preseason game tonight. All eyes will be on the running back position for both teams. The Cowboys lost star running back DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency. They brought in veteran back Darren McFadden as a potential replacement. However, McFadden’s battle with injuries throughout his career has already come to light in the preseason. He is not expected to play in tonight’s game. Joseph Randle has also been dinged up this week. Keep an eye on the Cowboys young running backs Lance Dunbar, Lache Seastrunk and Gus Johnson to see if any of them can take advantage of their carries tonight.
Meanwhile, the San Diego Chargers have a new running back of their own. The Chargers drafted Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon in the first round. The team hopes Gordon can eventually develop into a star, three-down running back they have been missing. Tonight, will give Chargers fans their first look at Gordon in the NFL.
