Cowboys Fans Are Not Buying Jerry Jones’ Admission About Ezekiel Elliott

After Thursday’s win over New Orleans Saints, the Dallas Cowboys are now 8-4. In recent weeks, however, once-unstoppable offenses have looked very week.

Some of this can be attributed roster losses. CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper have both missed games in recent week.

Ezekiel Elliott may also have some part to blame. In recent games, the Cowboys’ star running back has not looked 100 percent. Elliott is still battling a knee injury, but he continues to fight it.

Although some Cowboys fans wish Elliott would rest for a few games, Jerry Jones stated that it won’t happen.

“His trainers, the people that are the closest to his health, his medical situation, they think he’s really good to go,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “And, so, I don’t see after a 10-day rest here, you know, a lot of times, if you can get through games, if you can push on, then that’s better for you than sitting it out. You actually, if you have an issue, it improves if you’re able to get through and not injure it more. He certainly didn’t injure anything more last night. So, I really look forward to a powerful and dynamic Zeke as we move on into this last part of the season.”

However, many Cowboys fans don’t believe that. They want Elliott to rest.

“Anyone who saw him on Thursday knows that his leg is not right,” one fan tweeted.

Another fan said that while it might be true, Pollard is clearly the best option right now regardless of how much Elliott is being paid by DR/GM Jerry.

“Elliott’s best days are long gone. RB come a dime dozen. He’s only 26 years old and it’s over. Jerry overpaid him but that’s on Jerry,” another fan tweeted.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys will be back on the field to take on Washington next Sunday.
