Timeline On Dallas Cowboys Running Back's Return Revealed

The Dallas Cowboys made the big decision to move on from their franchise running back this off-season when they cut long-time Cowboy Ezekiel Elliott, but with young Tony Pollard emerging, Cowboys fans have a reason for optimism heading into 2023. 

After suffering a major leg injury in their NFC Divisional Round loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Pollard was expected to return late in the off-season, but has now admitted he's ahead of schedule, including a potential return to the team before training camp begins.

2022 was a career year for Pollard, as he racked up 1,007 yards rushing with 9 Touchdowns, adding 371 yards and another 3 Touchdowns in the air, and if he can be healthy for 2023, he may be a key reason for the Cowboys to finally go deep in the playoffs.
