The Dallas Cowboys may be without one their most skilled playmakers as they face the Washington Football Team on Sunday. Tony Pollard has been suffering from a torn fascia in his plantar fascia ever since Thursday’s match against the New Orleans Saints.
Pollard stated earlier this week that the injury happened on his 58-yard touchdown run.
Pollard stated, via Dallas Morning News. “When I put it down, and pushed on, I felt a little tear.”
Pollard stated that he will be making a game-time decision for Week 14. However, the most recent update is not ideal. Michael Gehlken, a Cowboys insider, says that the team plans to play without Pollard on Sunday.

Ezekiel Elliott will be able to provide a strong performance if Pollard isn’t able. He hasn’t rushed for more than 50 yards since Oct. 31, according to some reports.
Mike McCarthy, Cowboys’ head coach, had promised victory earlier this week. His team will have to beat their division rival on Sunday.
