Cowboys Running Back Ruled Out

The Dallas Cowboys have looked fantastic throughout the 2022 season, and with all of their veteran talent on both sides of the ball, it's hard to see them struggling to push for a playoff run finally this year, and one of the most interesting stories with this team is their running back room, as young Tony Pollard is emerging as a star.

He'll get yet another chance to prove how good he is in Week 10, as the Cowboys are taking on the Green Bay Packers in the late game today, and now, Ezekiel Elliot has officially been ruled out for the second straight game. Last time Elliot was out, with an extended opportunity, Pollard racked up 131 rushing yards and 3 Touchdown's, leading to some believing he should be the starter, which is a situation that Dallas will need to deal with before the postseason.

Right now though, Pollard gets another chance to prove his worth, and when Elliot comes back, this team could have one of, if not the best running back duo in the NFL, but it's safe to say that Dallas want both of their big weapons healthy before crunch time in the NFL season.
