"I don't notice that at all," coach Jason Garrett said, via ESPN.com. "I don't notice him slowing down or not being able to do the things physically that we're asking him to do. He's had some good games for us. He's had some games where he's been less productive."
It's important to keep an eye on workload here. McFadden was riddled with injuries throughout his time in Oakland, and his 213 touches this season has already surpassed what he did in either of his final two seasons with the Raiders. If McFadden keeps up this pace and stays on the field, he will wind up with the biggest workload of his entire career.
McFadden has 146 carries in seven games since becoming the Cowboys' primary back in late October. He's never carried the ball that much in a seven-game span.
"I think it's probably new for him to carry the ball as much, but he's certainly capable of doing it," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "I'm not concerned about a wall or anything like that. I just think as we get through the year, our expectation is our backs are going to get a good dose of carries."
