WICHITA, Kansas – ESPN.com is reporting that Joseph Randle is facing discipline for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
It stems from an incident last February in Wichita. Randle was arrested for possession of marijuana after police received a call about domestic violence. Those charges were eventually dropped.
Randle met with NFL investigators this summer and again within the past week, and the NFL determined that he violated the league’s personal conduct policy, which will carry consequences. In a best-case scenario, Randle will be fined. More likely, he’ll be suspended, possibly for multiple games according to ESPN.
Meanwhile, Dallas coach Jason Garrett says Randle won’t play against Seattle this weekend because of a back injury.
Randle appeared at practice Wednesday before leaving the team’s facility, and he left after a brief appearance at the facility Thursday morning. The third-year back started the first six games for the Cowboys (2-4).
Randle injured his back after two carries against New York. Christine Michael and Rod Smith are the backups to McFadden.
