Report: Cowboys Preparing To Be Without RB Ezekiel Elliott In Week 9


According to Michael Gehlken, the Cowboys are preparing to be without RB Ezekiel Elliott in Week 9’s game due to a hamstring injury. 

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said that Elliott will be a gameday decision and will have a pregame workout on Sunday. 

Gehlken adds that Sunday’s game is Dallas’ final appearance before their Week 10 bye. 

Elliott, 25, was taken with the No. 4 overall pick by the Cowboys back in 2016. He signed four-year rookie contract worth $24,956,342, which included a signing bonus of $16,350,068.

Elliott was set to make a base salary of $3.85 million for the 2019 season and another $9.1 million in 2020 under the fifth-year option of his contract when he elected to hold out for a new deal last year. Dallas re-signed him to an NFL record six-year, $90 million extension that included $50 million guaranteed. 

In 2020, Elliott has appeared in eight games and recorded 132 rushing attempts for 521 yards (3.9 YPC) and five touchdowns, to go along with 34 receptions for 220 yards receiving (6.5 YPC), one touchdown, five fumbles, and four fumbles lost.
