NFL: Dallas Cowboys’ Joseph Randle won’t be suspended after shoplifting charge

Dallas Cowboys’ running back Joseph Randle won’t be suspended after his arrest on a shoplifting charge.

The Cowboy’s  running back will however face a steep fine, with Cowboys coach Jason Garrett saying that Randle would be fined “significantly” but that the 22-year-old would play against the New York Giants on Sunday.

Randle was charged with a Class B misdemeanor of theft between $50 and $500 after he was accused of taking $123 worth of cologne and underwear from a department store at a suburban Dallas mall on Monday.

“The actions we’re going to take are to fine him significantly and move forward,” said Garrett.

“There were a lot of circumstances that were surrounding the situation but there are no excuses, no explanations for this,” added Garrett.

“He made a poor decision. As poor a decision as he has ever made in his life. He recognises this. There are consequences to that. We made that abundantly clear.”

The arrest came a day after one of Randle’s best games in two seasons for Dallas with a stunning 30-23 victory at Super Bowl champions Seattle.

He ran five times for 52 yards to help the Cowboys improve to 5-1 for the season in the NFC East.
