Rams RB Lance Dunbar Expected To Start Season On PUP List

Rams HC Sean McVay said that he expects RB Lance Dunbar to open the regular season on the physically unable to perform list due to a knee injury, according to Alden Gonzalez.

McVay said at the beginning of August that Dunbar was “out indefinitely” with a knee injury, so it appears that the injury has been severe enough to keep him out the entire month.

It is worth mentioning that Dunbar sustained a season-ending torn ACL back in 2015.

Dunbar, 27, signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of North Texas back in 2012. After playing out his rookie contract, Dunbar signed a one-year, $1.542 million contract with the Cowboys as a restricted free agent in April of 2015.

However, Dunbar’s 2015 season, unfortunately, came to an end after he sustained a torn ACL while returning a kick a month into the season. The Cowboys elected to bring him back on a one-year, $1.25 million contract last year.

The Rams signed him to a one-year, $3 million contract during the offseason.

In 2016, Dunbar appeared in 13 games for the Cowboys and rushed for 31 yards on nine carries (3.4 YPC) to go along with 16 receptions for 122 yards receiving and a touchdown. He also added 32 kick return yards.
