To know what the Dallas Cowboys think about running back Lance Dunbar, all you need to see is that he was a healthy scratch, like Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, DeMarco Murray and Orlando Scandrick.

“Certainly we have a good feel for what he can do,” 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.”
