Nothing seems to be going right for the Dallas Cowboys lately, they are on a four game losing streak and now one of their players has abandoned them.

Just as the positive news that star wide receiver Dez Bryant may be returning this Sunday emerges, runningback Joseph Randle has given the team one more headache.

Where did he go?

Randle has brought his fair share of controversy to the team this year after his two arrests and now it looks like he is set to bring a little more.

Despite starting the year as the starting runningback for the team, Randle has not always been the lone star in Dallas.

The decision has now been made that Randle has lost his spot as the teams starter and needless to say, that has not sat well with the player.

Randle left the Cowboys facility for personal reasons on Wednesday - a day after being informed that he was no longer the teams starter.

Leaving the facility meant that Randle missed a treatment session for the injury he suffered against the New York Giants.

Randle leaving was considered a controversial move at the time but it has now been reported that his disappearance frustrated many team officials.

"His decision to go AWOL and miss a treatment session, has frustrated a Cowboys staff that has grown increasingly impatient with Randle’s litany of troubles." - Fort Worth's Star Telegram's quote on Randle

Randle has now lost the starting job in Dallas to Darren McFadden after he has only ran for 84 scoreless yards in his last two games.

Time for a turn around?

The Cowboys are on a four game losing streak after starting 2-0 this season, but is their luck about to change?

Quarterback Tony Romo is still missing and reportedly still a few weeks away from his return but Dez Bryant is rumoured to be back this week.

With tight-end Jason Witten playing well, McFadden coming off the back of a 152 yard performance against the Giants and Bryant coming back, is there hope for the Cowboys?

Well any hope that Dallas may have will be sternly tested on Sunday when they travel to CenturyLink Field to take on the Seattle Seahawks - a game they won last year.
