Ezekiel Elliott, the Dallas Cowboys running back, was forced to leave Sunday’s blowout loss by the Denver Broncos with a knee injury.
Although the initial exit was concerning, Zeke was able return to the field in the second half. The star RB ended the game with 51 yards and 10 carries after a time on the bench wearing a heating wrap on his knee.
Elliott gave an encouraging update about his injury situation after today’s practice.
“My knee feels good. “I probably did more today than I have in the past. I probably did more today than I have in the past.

Although Elliott was limited today in practice, his words of assurance seem to point in the right direction. Elliott will be taking the field against Atlanta Falcons Sunday.
Elliott, along with the rest Cowboys’ offense that was held to zero through three quarters of Week 9, will be looking to get his solid play back on the right track in Week 10.
