Could Detroit Lions Take a Look at Tashard Choice?

The Dallas Cowboys made an unexpected roster move Saturday, cutting running back Tashard Choice. The fourth-year running back has been a colossal disappointment this year, rushing for just 75 yards on 28 carries in six games.

Choice has been dealing with an injured shoulder and looked questionable to play in Sunday night's key Cowboys-Eagles affair.

The Lions' running game continues to be in flux — starter Jahvid Best missed last week's loss to the Falcons while dealing with a concussion suffered in Week 6. He won't suit up Sunday against the Broncos, either. Maurice Morris and Keiland Williams provided a nice boost in Best's absence last week, but the Lions are one more injury from being in a bad spot in the backfield.

Choice was a fourth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2008. Aside from an occasional flash of promise, though, Choice never really developed into a major contributor for the Cowboys.

The 26-year-old had his best season as a rookie, when he rushed for 472 yards and two touchdowns.
