McFadden to Evaluate Football Future After Season

"I'll try to get away from the game for a little while..."

FRISCO, Tex. -- Former University of Arkansas running back Darren McFadden says he'll evaluate his future in football following the season.

McFadden was listed as inactive last week for the Dallas Cowboys despite starting running back Ezekiel Elliot serving a suspension.  McFadden has sat out the majority of games this season attempting just one rush for -2 yards.

McFadden says he's 100-percent healthy.  Not being active on game day certainly has the NFL veteran thinking about his future. 

"When the off season gets here, I'll sit down and think about it," said McFadden to reporters. "I'll try to get away from the game for a little while and make a decision from there."

Two seasons ago, McFadden was a 1,000-yard rusher for the Dallas.  Things changed when Elliot arrived on the scene in 2016.  That season, McFadden rushed the ball just 24 times for 87 yards.  

McFadden entered the league in 2008 as part of the Oakland Raiders.  His top year came in 2010 when he rushed for more than 1,100 yards.
