Eagles Vs. Cowboys: Cowboys Cut Running Back Tashard Choice

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas the Cowboys have relased running back Tashard Choice one day before their showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Tashard Choice cut to make room for Bruce Carter. More to come on @ESPNDallas and 103.3.

Choice was once a promising prospect for the Cowboys. In 2008 the rookie opened some eyes while filling in for injured running backs Felix Jones and Marion Barber. That December he carried the ball 62 times in four games, for 325 yards (5.2 yards per carry) and two touchdowns. He also added 17 receptions for 163 yards – all coming against stout run defenses in the Steelers, Giants, Ravens and Eagles. 

Since then Choice has only rushed for 667 yards. He has become infamous for his boneheaded fumble against the Redskins a season ago, along with an embarrassing autograph request from Michael Vick immediately following a loss at the hands of Vick's Philadelphia Eagles. 

Choice had 28 carries for 75 yards this season and has lost a fumble in two consecutive games. The emergences of rookie running backs DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner last week, made the decision to cut Choice an easy one for Jason Garret and the Cowboys.

With Felix Jones out with a sprained ankle the Cowboys will enter Sunday night's showdown against the Eagles with only two active tailbacks, barring a late signing.
