Photo Shows What Ezekiel Elliott Looks Like After 6 Weeks Away

Dallas now sits at 8-6 and on the outside of the NFC playoff picture. "Zeke is going to energize our whole team", Jones said.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was planning to meet with Elliott on Monday, the first day the running back was allowed back into team headquarters. "This has been a rough year for Zeke, and he'll be the first to say that he knows his fans have had it up and down with him here". We're together again. Maybe we'll get a chance to really do something special.

The Cowboys are set to take on the Raiders at 8:20 p.m. E.T. tonight.

"He's got some abilities that not many people have", Prescott said (via the AP) of Elliott, who led the National Football League in rushing last season. He gets guys going with his attitude and his passion and love for the game. "Just seeing him back will make us play that much better".

Bryant agrees, pointing to the 40-yard catch he made in single coverage three plays after referee Gene Steratore used a folded index card between the chain and the ball to confirm what he said he had already seen as a Dallas first down on Prescott's fourth-and-1 sneak. "Obviously he's made a big impact on our football team in the time he's been with us, but real credit to Alfred Morris and Rod Smith for playing as well as they have in his absence".


"We get an extreme boost because that's our guy".

After failing to convert a first-and-goal into a touchdown in the final two minutes of a tied game, Dallas was clinging to a 3-point lead when Derek Carr fumbled the ball into the end zone.

"I just think the obvious things: what kind of condition are they in, how's their movement, can they sustain it, do they look functional, do they look smooth, do they look natural out there", Garrett said. Now they get the 2016 rushing champion back for their final two games against the Seahawks and Eagles.

Over the last six weeks Dallas had the good (victories over Washington and the New York Giants), the bad (losses to Atlanta, Philadelphia, and the Los Angeles Chargers) and the lucky (Sunday's victory over Oakland), all of which adds up to the Cowboys going 3-3 and keeping their playoff hopes alive while waiting out Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. They stayed afloat by going 3-3 without him, and are still facing an uphill battle to make the playoffs.
