Ezekiel Elliot Misses Practice After Sustaining Head Injury In Car Crash

|

Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott missed practice on both Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

Elliott missed practice with a minor head injury, and he was still able to work out on the sideline while the team was on the field. The Cowboys largely taking precautionary measures in holding Elliot out, according to a memo published on NFL.com

Given that Elliot is firmly entrenched at the top of the depth chart at running back, there would be no reason to push him in offseason workouts. The offense is the same, and the team will rely heavily on Elliot when the season comes around.

The team has an eye for expanding his role in 2017 and will be weary to push him in a spring walkthrough.

He is not expected to miss any meaningful playing time or time in practice when the season nears. After being taken fourth in the 2016 NFL draft, he paired with quarterback Dak Prescott to form a potent punch and reinvigorate the Dallas Cowboys offense.

The Cowboys would do well to protect Elliot as much as possible, whenever possible.
