Ezekiel Elliott return: Cowboys to get 'extreme boost,' Dez Bryant says

Steratore, the head referee in Sunday night's Oakland Raiders-Dallas Cowboys matchup, went to very unconventional (conventional?) lengths to make a ruling on a key first down. The Cowboys will be alive for the season's final week because New Orleans and Atlanta play each other Sunday. They'll return to work Tuesday, and Elliott's first practice will be Wednesday as the Cowboys begin preparation for a Christmas Eve home game against the spiraling Seahawks.

"You got to trust it", Jones said. "I'm excited to have him back at The Star".

Elliott ran for 783 yards and seven touchdowns on 191 carries in the first eight games of the season.

While Alfred Morris did an adequate job filling in for Elliott, Prescott's difficulties making plays downfield could be traced to defenses not having quite the same respect for the Dallas running game. "Obviously had a big impact on our football team in the times he's been with us".


During Elliott's absence, veteran Alfred Morris served as the Cowboys' starting running back, while Rod Smith functioned as the third-down back.

Now that the suspension is over, Zeke will be back smack dab in the middle of that spotlight. He's going to take some pressure off everybody else. "We'll just have to monitor [Smith], but certainly not an ACL, which is a relief". There'll still be a role for Alfred. Derek Carr fumbling the ball out of the back of the end zone was soul-crushing, but we've seen that happen before.

During Sunday Night Football, NBC Sports showed shirtless photos of Ezekiel Elliott working out in Cabo San Lucas. In fact, Elliott reportedly will release a documentary of how he spent his 38-day suspension. And both he and his teammates appear eager to see how things go. "Let's play some football, '" Bryant said. "The passion he brings each and every day is insane".

"I don't want to get into the specifics, but it was a favorable look", he said. "Maybe we can get in the playoffs". Nearly every week I see great efforts by all kinds of pass-catchers around the league negated due to one of the most ridiculous "processess" in professional sports.
