Draft Scout Lance Dunbar News
03/04/15 - RB Lance Dunbar did not live up to expectations last year because of a lack of opportunities. But also didn't do enough to warrant the restricted tender. The Cowboys will try to sign him to a minimum deal.
08/21/14 - LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar did not practice Tuesday and Wednesday for an undisclosed reason, but watched from the side.
08/10/14 - RB Lance Dunbar was one of the 24 players held out the preseason opener and he was one of number of healthy scratches.
It was an example of how big a role they expect Dunbar to play this season.
"Well, certainly we have a good feel for what he can do," Cowboys 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. So as we go forward. He'll definitely get some reps. We think he's going to be a big part of our offense."
Dunbar has played in 21 games in two seasons, with 51 career carries for 225 yards. He seemingly could have used the preseason action.
"I really wanted to play," Dunbar said. "Like it was the first game, the first live game back, and I wanted to get back out there. And just to have fun. It's fun to play football. It was a chance to play with my teammates and just show off your talents. I missed playing."
