Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world

Ezekiel Elliott has never missed an NFL game due to injury.He recently battled an ankle injury in 2019 to stay available and attempted to do so at the end of the 2020 season with a calf patch And that’s so far.Although the two-time NFL rushing champion was restricted in training all week, he predicted he would be on the field against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15, which was made by head coach Mike McCarthy and owner Jerry Jones confirms everyone expected Elliott on the field on Sunday, but the plan changed at the last minute in Dallas Elliott has now been excluded from the matchup with the 49ers This is the first time in his career that it has happened due to a health problem

While the Cowboys recently reduced Elliott’s workload a bit to explain how to manage his bruised calf, a source describes CBS Sports as “significant” and “not handsome,” they have resisted the decision to owe him to – though it would have been and still has the reputation of being wise, in his absence, backup Tony Pollard will back up most of the work, and promising rookie Rico Dowdle will get some snaps as well

In a move that could be viewed as insurance in the event Elliott was disfellowshipped, the Cowboys promoted rookie full-back Sewo Olonilua from the team’s training team on Saturday is expected to be on offense as well considered, if only to a small extent

The question now for Elliott is whether this is just a week-long session or more with the Cowboys clinging to a tiny chance of making the playoffs and a loss to the 49ers would completely eliminate them even if they need to win she’s a ton of help, which likely includes the Washington Football team collapsing completely in the last three games – or a host of other NFC teams. If the Cowboys are banned from the playoff hunt on Sunday, the odds are much smaller Elliott would return in Week 16, but that has yet to be decided as he continues to try to hurry for the fifth time in his six NFL seasons

The 49ers didn’t plan for Pollard and Co However, this could lead to an interesting football on Sunday
