Ezekiel Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys received more bad news as it was announced that running back Ezekiel Elliott may miss the game Sunday against the Chicago Bears due to a torn MCL.

Elliott looked as if he was injured during the game against the Detroit Lions but was able to return.

After Elliott was examined Monday, it was found that he had a bruised knee and thigh and was held out of practice by head coach Mike McCarthy who basically said Elliott is day to day.

Elliott agrees that his status is day-to-day.

“Trying to get stiffness out and get with training staff and seeing where it can get. I don’t know right now,” Elliott said when asked about the Bears game. “We still have a lot of time before Sunday. Just focused on getting this knee as healthy as I can.”

If Elliott does not play, he will be replaced by backup Tony Pollard, so it wouldn’t be that huge of a dropoff at the running back position.

The Cowboys running game has produced more since quarterback Dak Prescott was sidelined earlier with an injury.

Elliott has rushed for 443 yards this season and four touchdowns, while Pollard has rushed for 375 yards and two touchdowns.
