Ezekiel Elliott was happy for Tony Pollard, fellow running back, on Sunday.
Elliott is currently recovering from a knee injury and Pollard was his replacement. He was injured in a knee injury and was unable to practice last week after being out of Sunday’s victory against the Detroit Lions.
Pollard ran for 151 yards with three touchdowns on just 14 carries. The Cowboys offense was unable to stop Pollard and the Bears defense allowed 49 points in a loss of 49-29.
Elliott raised an imaginary Lombardi Trophy from the air after the Cowboys’ win and said that he didn’t care who it was.
“All I’m worried about is winning, and at the end of the season. I want to be holding up that Lombardi,” Elliott said, via Jori Epstein of Yahoo Sports. “We’ve all got the same goal and that’s for this team to be successful. It doesn’t matter to me or him if it’s me or him doing it.”
If the Cowboys want to make a Super Bowl run, they will need both running backs.
They also hope to bring Elliott back for their next Cowboys game against the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 13.
