What’s wrong with Ezekiel Elliott’s knee?
Elliott has been dealing with a knee issue for much of the campaign. In last week’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, Elliott left the game briefly, limping around following a play. He ultimately remained in the game
This week, Elliott was limited in practice on Monday but returned in full on Tuesday. On the latter day, the running back revealed that he re-aggravated the injury against the Chiefs, but it was something that he planned on playing through.
Entering the Thanksgiving game, Elliott’s knee injury was described as a bone bruise.
