Those wondering about Ezekiel Elliott’s Week 9 status can finally relax.
The Cowboys announced that the talented running back will be active for Sunday’s clash against the undefeated Steelers. Elliott was previously listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury.
With journeyman QB Garrett Gilbertset to make his first NFL start, Elliott’s presence will be much-needed against a stout Pittsburgh defense, regardless of the capacity he’ll be operating at.
It’s been a challenging season for Zeke and Dallas overall, but Elliott’s last three games — 43 carries for 157 yards and no TDs; all Dallas losses — have been particularly rough. He’ll look to turn in a bounce-back effort in front of the Dallas faithful.
