Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks due to an oblique strain, the team announced Thursday. 

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that Randle did not practice for the second straight day due to the injury. Garrett added that the running back was also dealing with personal issues, likely relating to his February arrest. 

Reports surfaced Thursday that Randle could be fined or suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy in the arrest. 

Garrett went on to say that Randle’s absence was not in relation to any possible NFL discipline. 

Randle left the Cowboys’ 27–20 loss to the New York Giants on Oct. 25 with a back injury in the first quarter and did not return to the game. 

In six games so far this season, the running back has accumulated 315 yards on 76 carries, while scoring four touchdowns. 

The Cowboys (2–4) will play the Seattle Seahawks (3–4) at home on Sunday.
