Report: Ezekiel Elliott to Dress for Cowboys vs. Steelers



Ezekiel Elliott will dress for the Dallas Cowboys against the Steelers on Sunday, according to a report by David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

Elliott has been bothered by a hamstring injury suffered in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys’ Week 8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and is officially listed as questionable for the game.

The Cowboys activated rookie Demo Olonilua from their practice squad in case Elliott is not able to play. Head coach Mike McCarthy called him a game-time decision earlier in the week.

Elliott, 25, has never missed a game to injury in his five NFL season. Since joining the Cowboys as the No. 4 overall pick out of Ohio State in 2016, he has rushed for over 5,700 yards and 45 touchdowns.

This season, as the Dallas passing attack has faltered with the injury to Dak Prescott, turning the Cowboys offense into a one-dimensional attack, teams have done a better job of containing Elliott. He’s averaging 3.9 yards per carry this season, a career low and down from 4.5 yards per carry in 2019.
