Cowboys' McFadden starts camp on injured list with bad hamstring, McClain also out as expected


OXNARD, California — Cowboys running back will start training camp on the physically unable to perform list because of a hamstring injury that also bothered him in the offseason.

Linebacker also is on the injured list going into Thursday's first full camp workout. That was expected after coach said he wouldn't be ready early in camp as he recovers from offseason knee surgery.

Dallas is hoping McFadden, the top 10 pick by Oakland in 2008, can help replace NFL rushing champion , who signed with Philadelphia in free agency.

Three rookies are starting on active injured lists: lineman (hip surgery), linebacker (knee) and center (eye infection).

All the players can be activated anytime during camp.
