    Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Continues To Be Limited With Hamstring Strain

    It's been a tough season for .

    The former pick has been plagued by fumbles this season, has seen a drop in his production overall, and has been running behind one of the worst offensive lines this team has seen in years.

    And according to the , Elliott is now struggling through health problems as well. Elliott has been limited at practice with a hamstring strain this week, and his status for Sunday is up for question.

    told the media this week that Elliott is taking it day by day, and he anticipates they will take their caution all the way to pregame warmups.

    “He's got a hamstring that we're just being smart with…That's why he was limited (Thursday), feels better today. But our work (Saturday) will tell us a lot and we'll take it all the way to the pregame workout” – Mike McCarthy.

    Considering Elliott is the one of the last men standing healthy from the original starting , whispers have already begun to whether the Cowboys should just shut him down for the year. This would give the bulk of the carries during this lost season, and let Elliott rest up his legs for next year.

    When, hopefully, they will be whole and ready to compete.

    So far there is no indication that this is the plan, but keep an eye on Elliott's status going forward for this game against the Steelers.

    Truly wishing Elliot a return to full health. That being said, I’m excited at the thought of Pollard getting the bulk of the carries. He’s electric when he runs and he hits those holes fast. Best wishes to Elliot and Pollard both. Go Cowboys!

    This would be a great year to give our young players practice and game reps. I think we all know what Pollard brings to the table but let’s get some experience under the belts of the young guys who wouldn’t regularly get a whiff of in game experience. That way, the brass can evaluate what they truly have on the roster along with putting some of these guys on the fast track in player development.

    Up and coming Pollard > Seen his better days Elliot

    Independent of Zeke albatross contract. I think Pollard gives us the best chance to win moving forward. More explosive and able to move the chains with chunk runs. Zeke has hurt us with his running and fumbling, and next yr he’ll be a yr more over the hill.

    Too bad we’re stuck with him a couple more yrs due to his contract. RBs are notorious for burning out early but he seems to have burned out a little earlier than most. Why Jerry would sign a RB going into his 5th yr to a huge contract is beyond me. Just a clueless GM!

    Pollard been running better than zeke in the limited carries he does get anyway.

    Pollard is quicker than Zeke and can get into the secondary on occasion, but not sure he is a long term first string guy. Zeke seems to be on the backside of his career. May think about looking to augment this backfield.

    Elliott is done.
