Ezekiel Elliott’s Week 1 performance for the Dallas Cowboys was poor. He rushed for 52 yards. Dak Prescott is out for the foreseeable future so the All-Pro running back will have to take over the offense.
In a recent episode on ESPN’s Get Up, ex-offensive lineman Damien Woody called Elliott out.
Woody would like to know where is Elliott’s dominant version. This is what Cowboys fans talk about all the time. He hasn’t seen this player in a while.
“Jerry Jones talked about Ezekiel Elliott,” Woody said. “Where is he? Where is Zeke? He’s on the back of a milk carton. He’s supposed to be eating and doing all that stuff. Where’s he eating at?”

Elliott spoke to reporters earlier in the week and stated that he would like more carries.
“I think we came in and played well in the run game,’’ Elliott said. “The efficiency was there. We’ve just got to commit to it. Get the runs. Wear on that defense. We’ve got to lean on them.”
This Sunday, the Cowboys will likely lean on their running backs against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Elliott won’t be able to step up in Week 2. There will be many people calling him out Monday morning.
