This weekend, the Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in a match of legendary NFL franchises. Will running back Ezekiel Elliot take to the field alongside the rest of America’s Team, however?
The Cowboys placed Elliott in “questionable” status on Friday for Sunday’s game against Green Bay. Elliott missed last week’s game due to a hyperextended left knee injury he sustained in October. This week, he was restricted to practice.
Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner expressed optimism about Elliott playing. He told 105.3 The Fan Dallas that Elliott is “on-the-go” and expressed his belief in it.
Jones stated that he does believe he will play via ProFootballTalk. “Everything I have seen — I watched him yesterday and got a report about the practice… He seems to be on the move.”

Ezekiel Elliott’s performance has been steady but not remarkable for the majority of the season. The team continues to split the workload between Elliott and No. Tony Pollard, running back.
He is on pace to rush for more than 1,000 yards this season. However, he may have the fewest carries and yards per touch of any of his careers.
It is becoming more doubtful that the Dallas Cowboys would be as successful without Elliott than they are with him. Pollard, who continues to flourish as the No. 2 back.
The team’s position for now is: Ezekiel Elliott will start if he is healthy.
