Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys runningback, was hurt in his knee last weekend against the Detroit Lions. He still managed to get in the end zone twice despite it.
Elliott ended Week 7 with 15 carries, 57 yards, and two touchdowns.
Elliott’s injury to his knee after the win over The Lions was not a concern, but it seems he will need to rest.
Mike McCarthy, Cowboys’ head coach, announced that Elliott would not be practicing this Wednesday. Elliott will work with the rehabilitation group off to his side.

However, Elliott won’t be able to play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
On Thursday and Friday, Elliott’s status would be updated. He should be able to practice as much as possible this week and be ready for Sunday.
Tony Pollard will be the Cowboys’ main support in Week 8 if Elliott is out of action. He ran more than 100 yards last weekend.
