The Dallas Cowboys have gotten Ezekiel Elliott back from suspension. Elliott, who was suspended for six-game practiced with his team for the first time since Nov. 3rd this week. Elliott seemed upbeat and eager to get back to playing football.
The second-year running back came back in incredible shape, but would not disclose anything about how he trained during his six-week suspension.
I’m not really going to talk about it. It’s behind me. I’m just trying to start a new page, a new chapter. I just want to thank this Cowboys organization for being behind me.
I’m thankful to my family, my team, my friends for supporting me through the time and especially the Cowboys fans who stuck by me through this tough time and have a lot of faith in me. But I’m not talking about it anymore. This is the last time you’ll hear me speack about it. So please don’t even as me about it.
Elliott’s team is ecstatic to have him back. Prescott thinks that Zeke has a fire lit in him and that he will finish the season on a high note.
He knows what’s important and that’s the game of football. So I’m sure, like I said, I know it motivated him just watching the game and watching his teammates and his boys go out there and play. Obviously, him wanting to be out there, I know it lit a fire in him. And just seeing him in the way he’s been performing in coming back, you can tell.
In his eight games, Elliott has rushed for 783 yards and seven touchdowns. He is still tied for fifth-most rushing touchdowns in the league. Zeke will play this Sunday as the Cowboys welcome the Seahawks to Dallas.
