Cowboys fine Joseph Randle $29k, plan to play him against Giants
Wednesday October 15th, 2014

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle ​has been fined $29,117 after being arrested for shoplifting on Monday, reports USA TODAY

According to USA TODAY, the number represents how much Randle makes per week. 

Randle apologized to his teammates Wednesday morning for the arrest, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Randle took full responsibility for his actions and will face consequences, but will play on Sunday. 

BURKE: From worst to first, the Cowboys are our new No. 1

Randle allegedly shoplifted underwear and cologne from a Dallas-area mall. An arrest report said the total value of the stolen items was $123.50 before tax.

According to Hill, Garrett said the team would move on after Randle was fined significantly.

Randle is the team's third-string running back behind league-leading rusher DeMarco Murray and third-year pro Lance Dunbar. The 22-year-old has played in five games this season, rushing for 113 yards on 16 carries. 

Poll: Cowboys no longer America's favorite team

Dallas (5-1) will host the New York Giants (3-3) on Sunday. The Cowboys are currently tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for first place in the NFC East.
