Ezekiel Elliott at rest? – Sports VAT
Notice to poolers interested in the NFL: The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly planning to rest running back Ezekiel Elliott in the coming weeks.
According to ESPN, he should not be in uniform during next Thursday’s duel against the New Orleans Saints. The 26-year-old is said to be suffering from a minor knee injury.
In the past few weeks, the Cowboys have restricted Elliott’s use. In this week’s loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, the running back made only 47 offensive games.
« I’m worried about him because he’s a warrior, » Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said after his family’s last game. He was fighting to get back on the pitch constantly. ”
“He shoves his opponents and he takes a lot of hits. We need to assess his condition this week. ”
In 11 games this season, Elliott has run with the ball 160 times for gains of 720 yards and eight touchdowns.
If he is absent, the Dallas club will rely on the services of Tony Pollard in their backfield. The latter is successful in 2021, despite the fact that he is behind Elliott. In 100 carries, he had 531 yards and a major.
