Ezekiel Elliott:

latest news at page 1:
    The Dallas Cowboys are likely to play Ezekiel Elliott the rest of the way, which is actually bad news given by Jerry Jones. Zeke has been dealing with a knee injury for seemingly weeks, and rather than giving him time off, they’ve merely been making the ailment worse. To be clear, this isn’t Elliott’s fault. He’s been given direction from the Cowboys coaching and medical staff. Despite further comments on his ailing knee by Elliott after the Cowboys’ Thursday night win, Jerry Jones is convinced he won’t miss any time. What’s stopping Cowboys from sitting Ezekiel Elliott?“His trainers, the people that are the closest to his health, his medical situation, they think he’s really good to go,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “And, so, I don’t see after a 10-day rest here, you know, a lot of times, if you can get through games, if you can push on, then that’s better for you than sitting it out. You actually, if you have an issue, it improves if you’re able to get through and not injure it more. He certainly...
    Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys. Mandatory Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Tony Pollard has proven to be a potential star with the Cowboys but, if Dallas sticks with Ezekiel Elliott, where could they trade the young RB? It certainly appears that the Dallas Cowboys are heading towards a crossroads with their running back room. Ezekiel Elliott remains under contract for quite a while and, frankly, it’s not going to be anytime soon that they can get out of that deal with the way it’s structured. But meanwhile, Tony Pollard has emerged as a dynamic, dangerous playmaker. Considering that Pollard is younger, has less mileage on the tires, and is seemingly just better right now — although, admittedly, Elliott has unwisely been playing through injury for the past few weeks — it would make sense if the Cowboys pivoted to Pollard as the lead back. But if Jerry Jones and the organization wants to remain committed to Elliott, then they would be almost foolish to let a player with Pollard’s talent and intrigue waste away as a backup when he could offer...
    The Dallas Cowboys playing a hurt Ezekiel Elliott against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night has left many confused. The Dallas Cowboys traveled down to New Orleans hoping to bring an end to their losing streak. There were questions as to whether running back Ezekiel Elliott would play against the Saints, or rest up a knee injury. The latter seemed like a logical option, as Tony Pollard has been playing at a high-level this season. Instead, the Cowboys played Elliott in the Saints game and gave him the majority of the carries. That left many on Twitter confused, considering they have a healthy Pollard at their disposal. He shouldnt be playing. https://t.co/fBePBulWbf — Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) December 3, 2021 Ezekiel Elliott is hurt.

    Getty Ezekiel Elliott, Jerry Jones So much for that whole rest thing. Debunking recent media reports, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones proclaimed starting running back Ezekiel Elliott will handle a “serious load” in Thursday’s road contest against the New Orleans Saints. “The facts are we expect him to have a serious load against New Orleans,” were Jones’ exact words during a radio interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, November 30, via USA Today’s Jori Epstein. Jones’ declaration flew in the face of a November 26 report by ESPN’s Ed Werder, who wrote the Cowboys “will consider” sitting Elliott at New Orleans, allowing his balky knee time to heal following two straight early-week games. It also somewhat contradicted head coach Mike McCarthy, who himself hinted at an altered role for the $90 million centerpiece. “It’s that time of year,” McCarthy said November 26, via ESPN. “Zeke’s running style is ferocious. He gives a pounding, and he takes some hits. We need to evaluate that, and this week we’ll see what the preparation looks like for him.” His knee...
    Cowboys’ star running back Ezekiel Elliot tells media he has been playing injured and hasn’t been given any time to heal up During media availability on Sunday afternoon, Ezekiel Elliott took a question about his lack of playing time and use in the Dallas Cowboys offense. Zeke’s response addressed that concern, but also shed some light on the running back’s health. Elliott told the media that during the Cowboys’ Week 4 matchup with the Carolina Panthers his knee was injured and he has been struggling ever since then. He says it supposedly gets stiff, but he is working to manage and push through the injury. Elliott would then go on to explain why he has not taken time off to deal with this injury. According to Zeke, none of the coaching staff or medical staff have approached him and suggested he take time off. Elliot expands further, saying he does not believe the possibility of him getting rest for his injury has even come up. Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott injured his knee vs. Panthers on Oct. 3.

    Ezekiel Elliott was clearly limited in the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving loss and now Dallas could turn to Tony Pollard in Week 13 and give the RB1 some rest. The Dallas Cowboys are certainly reeling after their Thanksgiving Day loss to the Raiders, making them losers in three of their last four games and looking quite out of sorts on a number of occasions. And running back Ezekiel Elliott’s injury situation hasn’t helped matters. Elliott has been playing through a knee injury and, though he’s been able to find the end zone a few times, the former Cowboys top-five pick has been limited in his usage and, at the same time, his overall effectiveness as well. But now, Dallas might be looking at the bigger picture. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the team is considering resting Elliott in Week 13 on Thursday against the Saints and giving backup Tony Pollard the start in what has become a crucial game for America’s Team. Just in terms of getting Zeke healthy, that would make a lot of sense. It also shouldn’t be overlooked, however,...
    Getty The Cowboys may sit Ezekiel Elliott as he recovers from a knee injury. The Dallas Cowboys could change up their strategy after all when it comes to Ezekiel Elliott. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Cowboys could give Elliott time off to heal up his lingering knee injury. That would including possibly sitting out the Pro Bowl running back for next week’s game versus the New Orleans Saints. “Source: Cowboys will consider providing running back Ezekiel Elliott time off to heal from the knee injury he’s been managing, including the possibility of holding him out of next Thursday night’s game in New Orleans, according to a source,” says Werder. “IR not believed a consideration.” Elliott has dealt with the knee injury throughout the 2021 season, but re-aggravated the injury last Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite the injury persisting — and only a four-year recovery period — Elliott played through the ailment in the Cowboys’ loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving day. However, it was clear that Elliott wasn’t at full strength. Not only...
    Getty Ezekiel Elliott is confused about his workload. Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott appeared to be just as confused as fans were about his lack of touches on Thanksgiving. The Cowboys had nearly an even split in the backfield against the Raiders with Tony Pollard’s ten carries combined with Elliott’s nine rushes. Elliott was utilized a bit more in the passing game with six receptions compared to Pollard’s four catches. When Elliott was asked about his lack of touches, the Cowboys running back admitted he was unsure about why he was not on the field more against the Raiders. “Yeah, I don’t know,” Elliott responded during his postgame press conference. “Yeah, I don’t know. I feel alright, but it probably was [related to his injury].” Elliott was also asked about his limited snaps in the second quarter, and the running back offered no explanation. “Yeah, I don’t know,” Elliott noted.

    Getty The Cowboys may have to be cautious with Ezekiel Elliott's workload. The Dallas Cowboys will likely utilize a new strategy due to Ezekiel Elliott’s injury moving forward. As Elliott continues to deal with a nagging knee injury, the Cowboys’ plan to lessen his workload moving forward, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Not only that, but Elliott’s injury will linger all season long, says Rapoport. “This knee injury, bone bruise in his knee, is something that’s going to linger all season. Unless they step in and basically take Zeke off the field, it seems like it’s something that he’s going to play with. Just listening to Jerry Jones after the game. They’re going to alter the game plan a little bit because of Zeke’s injury. May have to get as, Jones mentioned, Tony Pollard 25 or so touches. May have to flip the roles a little bit just because Zeke is not himself. We’ll see if he can get out to a point where he is health enough where we don’t notice his knee. But until they...
    Sep 22, 2019; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (21) runs with the ball in the first quarter against Miami Dolphins defensive end Taco Charlton (96) at AT&T Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports The Dallas Cowboys clearly have something in running back Tony Pollard. Here are three hypothetical trade destinations for Ezekiel Elliott if they were to plan on moving him. The Dallas Cowboys participated in a thrilling Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Even though they forced overtime, it was the Raiders who left AT&T Stadium with the 36-33 victory. If there was one thing to take away from the game, it is that the Cowboys truly have something special in running back Tony Pollard. Not only did he pick up 68 yards from scrimmage in the game, but he also returned a kick 100-yards for a touchdown. That leaves some questions as to what the Cowboys should do at the position. Could trading Ezekiel Elliott ahead of the 2022 season be an answer? If that is the case, here are three...
    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was limited in the first half of the team’s Thanksgiving game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Entering their Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Dallas Cowboys offense was already without top wide receivers Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. During the first half, it became apparent that Elliott was not on the field after the first couple of plays in the game. He did appear later in the second quarter to score a goal-line touchdown. That was his only play of the quarter. The reason for his limited play is due to Elliott dealing with a knee injury that he has downplayed. Ezekiel Elliott has downplayed the significance of a knee injury he’s been managing. He touched ball the first three plays. But has not been on the field in several series. — Ed Werder (@WerderEdESPN) November 25, 2021 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,...
    Getty Dak Prescott saved Ezekiel Elliott a lot of money. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are the faces of the Dallas Cowboys franchise, but the two players had different paths to becoming stars. Elliott was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but Prescott was taken much later as the Cowboys finally snagged him in the fourth round after missing out on other quarterback targets. Prescott revealed a funny story of how Elliott left a $5 million check in his truck, which was worth more than the quarterback’s entire rookie contract. “Yeah, maybe the first couple of days of rookie mini camp, and I think I had a car at the time, Zeke didn’t [and] he was riding with me” Prescott explained during his November 18 press conference. “I tell people all the time, he left one of his $5 million signing bonuses in my truck and I’m like, ‘This is more than I’ll make actually in the next four years, come get this bud.’ “So, I just think from there, just our...
    Getty Cowboys QB Dak Prescott handing off to RB Ezekiel Elliott Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was not happy with himself after committing his first fumble in nearly a full calendar year during Sunday’s demolishing of the Atlanta Falcons. “That’s something I’ve been doing well on this year,” Elliott said in the wake of the 43-3 victory, via the official team website. “Definitely gotta lock back in on my ball security. Their defense came out, they played good against the run. A lot of movement, they were pretty disruptive. We went out there and hit our plays.” Facing a 2nd-and-3 midway through the third quarter, Elliott took a carry roughly seven yards before coughing it up to Atlanta. That had not happened in 244 touches, spanning back to last Thanksgiving, per ESPN’s Todd Archer. Elliott — who worked to correct his hands over the offseason after losing a career-high five fumbles in 2020 — finished the game with a team-leading 14 rushes for 41 yards and two touchdowns, adding 15 receiving yards on three catches. Both of...
    Getty Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Stop me if you have heard this before: Ezekiel Elliott is overpaid. That dead horse continues being beaten to an unrecognizable pulp, and the latest lashing comes courtesy of Bleacher Report, which scrutinized Elliott’s contract — six years, $90 million — as the Dallas Cowboys‘ worst of the 2021 season. “For the most part, the Dallas Cowboys have invested wisely in quarterback Dak Prescott, left tackle Tyron Smith, guard Zack Martin and wide receiver Amari Cooper,” BR columnist Brent Sobleski wrote on Friday, November 12. “For a while, Jerry Jones threw money around left and right to keep the team’s core together. In doing so, the Cowboys owner made Elliott the game’s highest-paid running back.” Sobleski added, wondering aloud: “Elliott is good.

    Getty Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was in and out of Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos after sustaining a right knee injury. Elliott finished the game, appearing more bothered by the humiliating home defeat than an ailment he attempted to explain away. “It’s something I’ve been dealing with the past couple weeks. Just a guy landed on it,” Elliott told reporters in his post-game press conference. Elliot — who finished the affair with 51 yards on 10 carries and 25 yards on three receptions — was banged down following a first-half tote and gingerly walked off to the sideline. Cameras caught him sitting on the bench with a wrap around his knee, which he acknowledged was a heating pad. “It helped just to keep it warm, and that’s just the biggest thing, keeping it warm.” Elliott alternated series with backup Tony Pollard as Dallas failed to establish its ground attack against the Broncos, logging just 78 rushing yards across 57 offensive plays. Much of the ineffectiveness was due to inordinate game flow...

The Cowboys listed Elliott as questionable to return with a knee contusion, but he was back for the team’s first offensive snap of the second half.

Okwuegbunam has a knee injury and is questionable to return. The Broncos ruled out two offensive linemen.

    Getty Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Dallas Cowboys fans were not kind to Ezekiel Elliott amid Sunday night’s 20-16 win over the Vikings. The team’s $90 million running back could not get going in Minnesota, finishing with 50 rushing yards on 16 carries (3.1 yards per carry) while adding four receptions for 23 yards, hamstrung by the absence of franchise quarterback Dak Prescott. Elliott’s performance, particularly on the ground, became a hot-bed of discussion — so talked-about that it began trending on Twitter. And … well, the feedback wasn’t very flattering. “I don’t know who needs to hear this but Tony Pollard is better than Ezekiel Elliott,” tweeted @ZekePorta. “Pretty safe to say that Todd Gurley, Zeke Elliott and Christian McCaffrey ruined big money contracts for RBs going forward?” tweeted @FeltFootball. “Remember when Zeke used to run all over everyone smh,” tweeted @BrianHWaters. “@EzekielElliott wow a whole lot of nothing.

    Getty Cowboys QB Cooper Rush With Dak Prescott still nursing the remnants of a right calf strain, backup quarterback Cooper Rush has taken some first-string practice reps with the Dallas Cowboys offense, head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday. McCarthy detailed his Week 8 practice plan as the team, fresh off its bye, readies for its Sunday Night Football affair in Minnesota. “I think it’s a matter of trying to make sure Cooper’s ready and make sure Dak is getting what he needs,” McCarthy told reporters, per the official team website. “Until Dak clears the threshold of the rehab component with (associate athletic trainer/director of rehabilitation) Britt (Brown), we won’t make that determination on going full go until we get to that point. With that, we’ve got to make sure we get Cooper ready.” McCarthy added Thursday: “I think you take in the full week.

Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said today that Elliott’s back is still sore from where he landed on the pylon, and that the team will contact the league about the player safety concerns that arise with an object so close to the field of play.

The Dallas Cowboys workhorse took an awkward tumble in the second half of Sunday’s blowout win over the Giants, landing hard on the pylon following a seven-yard sprint toward the end zone. Elliott immediately reached for his lower back and appeared in significant pain, prompting an evaluation from the medical staff. Elliott would return a few plays later looking no worse for wear — he hit paydirt on a four-yard touchdown reception — but the incident left a figurative and literal impression on the two-time NFL rushing champ. “I fell on the pylon.

    Taryn Manning and Anne Cline Split After Surprise Engagement: Details Stock futures rise heading into first full week of trading in October Nine months ago, he represented one of the worst contracts in the NFL. Ezekiel Elliott’s production was hitting an all-time low. The Dallas Cowboys running back was fumbling too much, and the powerfully explosive chunk plays that often fueled his “feed me” celebrations were fading. Despite being only 25 years old, something looked remarkably wrong in his game. But four games into 2021? The only thing fading about Elliott is the memory of him bottoming out last season. That’s what you have to take away from Sunday’s 36-28 win over the Carolina Panthers, which saw Elliott gash an impressively stout opposing defense for 143 yards and a touchdown on 20 rush attempts. That represents the most carries Elliott has gotten this season, with the offensive coaching staff continuing to manage his workload to keep him fresh and healthy over the course of this year. Perhaps smartly, considering the way Elliott and Dallas set a dominant running tone...

We want to impose our will week in and week out. I think we took a step today, but we got a lot to clean up. We could have put more points on the board. It could have been a larger margin for victory. Elliott had his best performance so far this season posting 17 rushes for 95 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 5.6 yards per carry. The veteran running back also added three receptions for 21 yards in the...

Dak Prescott threw for 238 yards and three touchdowns and Ezekiel Elliott ran for 95 yards and two scores as the Cowboys completely dominated Philadelphia. It wasn’t just an offensive success for Dallas either. The Cowboys defense intercepted Jalen Hurts twice with Trevon Diggs returning one interception for a 59-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the third quarter. It’s the third straight game that Diggs has hauled in an interception for Dallas.

He’s also the first Cowboy to return an interception for a touchdown since Byron Jones had a pick-six...

    Joey Bosa and Ezekiel Elliott will always be Ohio State football teammates, no matter what. Though they make their livings professionally for different NFL franchises, we should never forget what Joey Bosa and Ezekiel Elliott accomplished as Ohio State football teammates. Bosa’s Los Angeles Chargers hosted Elliott’s Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon in Week 2. While America’s Team got the best of the Bolts that day, they shared a special moment after the game with the proverbial jersey swap. Together, they helped the Buckeyes win the inaugural College Football Playoff as sophomores on the unforgettable 2014 team that defied the odds. Fate would have it, they went right after each other in the 2016 NFL Draft with Bosa to the Chargers at No. 3 and Elliott to the Cowboys at No. 4. ʙʀᴏᴛʜᴇʀʜᴏᴏᴅ#GoBucks pic.twitter.com/oWQJ2g3IFd — Ohio State Football (@OhioStateFB) September 21, 2021 Ohio State football forever: Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott share special NFL momentGiven that the Chargers and the Cowboys play in opposite conferences, they only get to play each other during the regular season every four years.

    Getty Cowboys RB Tony Pollard Following an eye-opening outing in Sunday’s upset victory at Los Angeles, the Dallas Cowboys are committing more snaps to Tony Pollard. Team vice president Stephen Jones confirmed in a radio interview Monday that the electric third-year running back, who could be on the verge of overtaking starter Ezekiel Elliott, “certainly deserves to get his touches.” “We did say it last week, we do have to get him more touches,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. “He’s a dynamic player, I think he’s a great complement to Zeke. He’s got the skill set that he can actually be a wide receiver if that’s what’s needed from him … the common theme is he certainly deserves to get his touches.” The latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Ezekiel Elliott enjoys sharing carries with Tony Pollard. After the team’s win over the Los Angeles Chargers, Ezekiel Elliott lit up when he was asked about fellow Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard. The Cowboys employed nearly a 50-50 split in carries between backs, but Elliott appeared to be far from angry about sharing the load with Pollard in the team’s win over the Chargers. “Oh man, I mean, T.P., he ran his tail off today,” Elliott said with a smile during his postgame press conference. “He’s a great back, all-around, can catch it, can run it. He’s smaller, but he runs hard. He breaks a lot of tackles. He had a helluva day. I’m proud of him. I’m glad he went out there and did his thing.” Elliott had 16 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions for 26 yards. Pollard had the more impressive statistical day with 13 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown. He also had three receptions for 31 yards as one of the Cowboys’ biggest offensive...
    The Dallas Cowboys took a field-goal lead into half-time, but it CeeDee Lamb and Ezekiel Elliott almost extended it in stunning fashion. The Dallas Cowboys took a 14-11 lead into halftime against the Los Angeles Chargers, but their advantage almost grew in spectacular fashion as they came close to pulling off a miracle play at the end of the second quarter. In the final seconds of the half at SoFi Stadium, Dak Prescott escaped the pocket and rolled to his left before connecting with CeeDee Lamb on a short pass. Lamb made one defender miss with a slick spin move before juking past another and breaking into the open field. The @dallascowboys ALMOST pulled it off before the half… ????: #DALvsLAC on CBS????: NFL app pic.twitter.com/8pFpBEyadK — NFL (@NFL) September 19, 2021 With one defender ahead of him, Lamb pitched the ball to Ezekiel Elliott at the 18-yard line, but the Cowboys’ running back was denied what would surely have been one the most memorable touchdowns of his career as he was forced out at the three-yard line by...
    Getty Ezekiel Elliott Given the opportunity, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott fiercely hit back at criticism stemming from last week’s nondescript showing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. “If you know football, you can tell someone had a solid game without having the best statistics,” Elliott told reporters on Wednesday, per Inside The Star. “If you don’t understand that, you should probably study a little more.” Indeed, pearl-clutching box-score scouts excoriated Elliott for converting 11 carries into just 33 scoreless yards. And, admittedly, the two-time rushing champ was left off the game plan devised by offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who dialed up 58 pass attempts for quarterback Dak Prescott. Prescott finished with 42 completions for 403 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception amid the 31-29 defeat. “That was a unique game,” Moore said Monday, per USA Today. “If we need to throw it 60 times, if we need to run it 60 times, I really don’t care. That was the No. 1 rushing defense in the NFL. We could bang our head against the wall if we want....
    Ezekiel Elliott doesn’t have time for criticism from those who don’t understand the game.  Critics turned their attention to the two-time NFL leading rusher in the Dallas Cowboys' 31-29 Week 1 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he registered just 11 carries for 33 yards but Elliot says stats don’t necessarily translate to performance. COWBOYS’ GREG ZUERLEIN LAMENTS MISSED FIELD GOALS: ‘IF I DO MY JOB, WE WIN THAT GAME’ "If you know football, then you can tell someone had a solid game without having the best statistics," Elliott said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I feel if you’re saying that, maybe they should be studying a little bit more."

    The Bachelor has reportedly cast its next star - and fans wont recognize him At end of the day, if bitcoin is successful governments will ‘kill it,’ says Ray Dalio Things didn’t go as planned for Ezekiel Elliott in the Dallas Cowboys' season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. Elliott — the two-time NFL rushing champion who has undoubtedly become one of the best running backs in the league in recent years — ran for just 33 yards on 11 carries in their 31-29 loss. Yet Elliott isn’t here for any criticism of his game whatsoever. Those who are bashing him for his performance, he said Wednesday, clearly don’t understand how football works. “If you know football, then you can tell someone had a solid game without having the best statistics,” Elliott said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Clarence Hill. “I feel if you’re saying that, maybe they should be studying a little bit more.” McCarthy: Elliott is ‘definitely on board’ with offensive plan It wasn’t just Elliott that struggled on the ground last week in Tampa....
    Sequels that made fans wait the longest Unplug These Appliances That Hike Up Your Electricity Bill Ezekiel Elliott wasn't as involved as usual in the Cowboys' Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers. Elliott had 11 carries — the second-lowest total of his career — in Dallas' 31-29 defeat. That was a departure from the 16.3 carries per game he averaged in Mike McCarthy's first season with the Cowboys. Is there any reason for concern with Elliott's lacking touches in the season opener? Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore doesn't think so. He explained that the Cowboys simply passed the ball more because the Bucs have one of the NFL's best run defenses. “That was a unique game,” Moore said to reporters Monday, per USA Today Sports. “If we need to throw it 60 times, if we need to run it 60 times, I really don’t care. That was the No. 1 rushing defense in the NFL. We could bang our head against the wall if we want. “But at the end of the day, I thought they did a good job...
    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott changed nearly half of the team’s run calls based on coverage, affecting running back Ezekiel Elliott’s play. The Cowboys may have lost in their Week 1 match against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but quarterback Dak Prescott employed a winning strategy: he swapped out plays based on defensive looks. According to Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, Prescott sauntered the field equipped with a run play 28 times. On 12 of those times, Prescott checked out the play based on how the defense looked. Kellen Moore says the Cowboys called 28 runs on Thursday night. Dak checked out of 12 of them based on the look. — David Helman (@HelmanDC) September 13, 2021 The revelation bodes well for Prescott, who returns to the NFL following a gruesome leg injury in Week 5 of 2020. Prescott nearly led the Cowboys to a win last Thursday, passing for 403 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. While making adjustments at the line of scrimmage makes for great quarterbacking, it also means less usage of the team’s running back...
    Getty Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott To borrow a phrase from the man who signs his checks, Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is not interested in circumcising any mosquitoes. Relative to his pass-happy approach in Dallas’ Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay, Moore explained that “yards are yards” whether they come by air or by ground — and “I really don’t care” so long as the game plan suits the opponent. “We threw ball that traveled a foot to [running back] Tony [Pollard] that went for eight yards, but it was a pass,” Moore said Monday, per David Helman of the official team website. “Yards are yards, whether they’re run or pass. I think we get a little bit hung up on the categories that they go into. We want to attack people in a balanced way. Now, that may be utilizing all our different personnel we’ve talked about, making sure all those guys get touches and spread defenses horizontally so we can attack them. We want to have diversity in our approach. But if it’s a lot...
    Getty Ezekiel Elliott had minimal touches in the Cowboys loss to the Bucs. Ezekiel Elliott may have to say “feed me” a little louder in Week 2 to get the attention of the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff. Elliott had just 11 carries for 33 yards in the Cowboys two-point loss to the Buccaneers in the season opener. After an offseason of praise from Cowboys coaches, the star running back was far from the focal point of the offense as the team threw the ball a whopping 58 times against Tampa. After the game, Elliott seemed to take his limited usage in stride admitting it was part of the team’s gameplan to attack the Bucs defense primarily through the air. “Yeah [limited rushes was part of the gameplan],” Elliott noted after the game. “The game goes however it goes, you know what I mean. I’m just out there to play, out there to do my best every play. So, I don’t know [about future usage].”Critics Crushed the Cowboys for Zeke’s Lack of Carries vs. BucsThe Cowboys received...
