11/18/15 - RB Christine Michael was placed on waivers by the Cowboys Tuesday (Nov. 17).
10/20/15 - RB Christine Michael has only two carries and has been active for just two games since being acquired in a trade with the Seattle Sept. 6. But with the running game and offense struggling in the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Cowboys are hoping Michael can provide a spark. Joseph Randle will remain the starter, but Michael will get a bigger load when the Cowboys return to action Oct. 25 against the New York Giants after this week's bye.
The Cowboys rank 19th in the NFL in rushing, averaging 106.2 yards per game. Last year, they ranked second in the league, rushing for 147.1 yards per game.
"I think we're going to give him an opportunity to go out and do some more snaps," running backs coach Gary Brown said. "I think he's earned it. He's worked hard, he's been everything we've expected off the field, and he's a student of the game. I think he's where he needs to be, and we want to take the reins off him and let him rock. We're looking forward to seeing him play."
09/09/15 - RB Christine Michael, acquired in a trade with the Seahawks on Sunday, is still getting up to speed on the playbook and may be inactive for the season opener against the Giants.
09/07/15 - The trade involving RB Christine Michael is confrimed as a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2016 draft.
09/06/15 - RB Christine Michael was acquied by Dallas from Seattle, reportedly for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.
Michael will be expected to provide depth behind Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar in the Cowboys' backfield.
The Seahawks had high expectations for Michael as a second-round pick out of Texas A&M in 2013, but he failed to develop as the front office had expected and Seattle signed veteran Fred Jackson to serve as Marshawn Lynch's primary backup.
Michael, 24, survived Saturday's roster cuts as Robert Turbin was placed on injured reserve, but the Seahawks were impressed with rookie Thomas Rawls during the preseason (21 carries for 127 yards and one touchdown)
Touted for his combination of size and speed, Michael (5-feet-10, 221 pounds) has flashed during the preseason but has logged only 52 carries for 254 yards (4.9-yard average) and one touchdown through his first two seasons.
09/29/14 - TB Christine Michael has recovered from a hamstring issue that helped hold him out of the first three games. Now it's just finding a way onto the active roster on gameday. "Yes, he's ready to go,'' Carroll said. "He has been for a week now. It's good to get him back more than just for some time. We got to get accustomed to him being out here and getting him the reps.
"It's hard to get on the roster right now for guys, we're in pretty good health; we're fortunate for that but he's really ready to get going and wants to play badly as you can imagine. So we'll see what happens.''
09/25/14 - RB Christine Michael, who the team has anticipated would get some significant time at tailback this season, was inactive for the first three games while dealing with a hamstring injury. He was listed as probable for the Denver game, indicating he is on the road to recovery, and the bye week should allow him to get back to 100 percent. Still, it may be hard for the second-year player to get many carries behind Marshawn Lynch, who is averaging 4.5 yards per carry and shows no signs of slowing down, and third-year running back Robert Turbin, who had one of his best games at San Diego and appears to have forged a role as Lynch's backup.
09/19/14 - RB Christine Michael could see his first action of the season after practicing fully all week. He has yet to play due to a hamsting injury.
09/17/14 - RB Christine Michael was a limited participant on Wednesday with a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the first two games of the season. He could be back this week.
