Ezekiel Elliott fine after car accident near Cowboys facility

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s trip to the team’s facility hit a snag in the form of another car on Wednesday morning.

The Frisco, Texas police confirmed that Elliott’s car was involved in an accident close to the team’s headquarters. The police said it was a minor accident that resulted in no injuries for Elliott or anyone in the other car and Elliott confirmed that all was well on his end in a post on social media.

It’s an unfortunate way to start a day, but it looks like it will amount to nothing more than a minor inconvenience for Elliott as he prepares for the first playoff game of his NFL career. The Cowboys hope the Packers defense will prove to be the same level of obstacle come Sunday.

    Did they search his car for bongs?

    Glad there were no injuries. And I’m a Packers fan.

    Was he beating his girl friend and took his eyes off the road?

    The only way the cowgirls will win is if they put Romo in after Dak inevitably struggles in the first half.

    Driver of the other car was unhurt, due to a helmet worn that resembled a huge slice of cheese.

    Were there any cigars stuffed with weed in the car?

    Really? Sounds to me like you are quite nervous about the prospect of possibly facing an NFC East team in the Super Bowl if the Pats and Cowboys are both fortunate enough to make it.

    We all know what happened the last two times the Pats faced an NFC east opponent in the SB………

  12. sportoficionado says: Jan 11, 2017 11:26 AM

    Hopefully this is the only distraction this week, as small as this is. Love the team’s focus and drive right now, keep up the good work and stay out of headlines until Sunday night, when it’s announced that the NFC Championship is going through Arlington.

    Sorry Haters, Zeke will run wild against the Packers again!

  14. nj22 says: Jan 11, 2017 11:27 AM

    Thats cool to see Giant fans on here even though their season ended in a blowout. Good for you guys. Hang in there.

  15. shieldsisland37 says: Jan 11, 2017 11:47 AM

    It is like final destination, but instead it is Aaron Rodgers coming for Zeke. An unstoppable force of nature, A – Rod, is coming for you Zeke!! Thumbs up if you think Dak is going to chock it up and they will have to bring in Romo! Dak is a good quarterback, but he is NO-WHERE close to Rodgers level.

    Packers fan.

  16. tedmurph says: Jan 11, 2017 11:50 AM

    Wow, nailed it. All I could think about last night, while not being able to sleep was: ‘OMG, I hope the Pats don’t have to face an NFCE team in the SBowl’.

    Future Diva. He’ll wind up rowing the same shrimp boat with Odell Beckham.

  19. leef2020 says: Jan 11, 2017 11:57 AM

    Well, even if he was injured, the Cowboys’ 2nd and 3rd string RBs are better than any RB the Packers have.

  20. scmems07 says: Jan 11, 2017 12:02 PM

    Proof that Zeke is nothing without his offensive line blocking for him.

    @ shieldsisland37 says:

    “Dak is a good quarterback, but he is NO-WHERE close to Rodgers level.”

    Nobody is saying Dak is close to Rodgers’ level. Dak is a rookie, but a pretty good one for a 4th rd pick. He sure looked good against GB in GB, as did Elliott.

    The GB D will have its hands full with Elliott and Dak (not to mention Beasly, Dez, Witten, Williams), just like the Dallas D will have its hands full with Rodgers. Rodgers is elite, but he won’t win the game by himself. The GB D will have to show up. You better hope for a different outcome than what happened in the regular season between these 2 teams.

    “A-Rod is coming for Zeke”? Really? Funny, as Rodgers doesn’t play defense. But you keep your narrative going to help quell your fears. The last time these two met in the playoffs, Dez caught it. There better not be a repeat of that nonsense by the refs. Unfortunately, the same head official is

    Thumbs up if you think Packers fans are nervous about this one (as they should be).

  22. pacificdan says: Jan 11, 2017 12:12 PM

    I like the Pack fans and media talking about how great Rodgers and the Packers have been the last 8 games. It’s cute, whereas Dak, Zeke, and the Cowboys were good ALL YEAR LONG.

    You mean like he struggled the 1st time we dominated GB? Got it.

    Reportedly, Michael “The Playmaker” Irving was a passenger. This could end badly for the Cowboys.

  25. smitty113 says: Jan 11, 2017 12:35 PM

    He must have finally gotten that bowl of cereal he asks for after every play and it distracted him.

  26. largejk says: Jan 11, 2017 12:36 PM

    @jsrdc I was with you up to the whole Dez catching it. let it go man, it wasn’t a catch, but then again what is a catch these days?

  27. jsrdc says: Jan 11, 2017 12:38 PM

    @ newjerseygiants says:

    “Future Diva. He’ll wind up rowing the same shrimp boat with Odell Beckham.”

    Yeah, we all know about boats and Beckham. BTW, if you look closely at that picture, what exactly was Trey Songz at bottom left in that pic holding in his left hand? Go take a look – apparently Mary Jane was along for the ride.

    The difference here is the Cowboys had 2 weeks off, and nobody decided to go to Miami (or elsewhere) because they were so confident about their next game.

    The NY Giants – the most over-hyped team in 2016.

  28. shieldsisland37 says: Jan 11, 2017 12:41 PM

    Rodgers does win games by himself. The criticisms of the organization as far as having good players on the roster is still valid despite their winning streak. Rodgers is a once in a generation player who is fully capable of beating a loaded Cowboys team by himself. And yes, it is fair to question if a rookie QB will have nerves that could effect his game in a playoff atmosphere. There is a reason Vegas has this as a 4 point game. If Rodgers gets hot the Packers will win and the whole world knows this except Dallas fans who are celebrating their first non dysfunctional year in a decade.

    “@jsrdc I was with you up to the whole Dez catching it. let it go man, it wasn’t a catch, but then again what is a catch these days?”

    You don’t have to be with me. It was obvious it was a catch, but the refs got it wrong – Dez caught it, took two steps, had control of the ball, and then one elbow touched the ground followed by the second elbow. He was down at that point, and the ground cannot cause a fumble.

    Refs make mistakes, I get it. With that said, when you have the replay right in front of you (but you don’t understand the rule book), that is a problem. The same head ref will be officiating this game. Hopefully by now he has the rule down, because he didn’t 2 years ago.

    Regardless, I expect a good game, and hopefully the officiating is fair and accurate.

    For a second, I thought the headline said that Elliot was FINED after car accident. Knowing the NFL, I wasn’t even surprised.

  34. cribbage12 says: Jan 11, 2017 1:04 PM

    Glad he willl be at 100%. Even with our best WR out it’ll be so nice when the Pack continues on their roll against a healthy Dallas team.

    As of 7:00 PM central time on Sunday night, this will be the most physical collision that Elliott will have been in all week long.

  38. philtration says: Jan 11, 2017 2:26 PM

    I wonder if he was the one that got hit for a change.

    As a Packer fan, it would have been great to not have Elliott in the game. That said, I’m glad nobody was hurt.

    Dallas could trade him to the Vikings, in Minnesota, that is, make a deal there, sell them Tony Romeo, and Ezikiel, and get Aid Peterson, Bradford, Bridgewater, a few 1st round picks a half dozen starters, like the Hershal Walker deal. Make Dallas a Dynasty !!!

    At least Beckham didn’t go around and nearly kill people. This maniac is colliding with others in a two-ton death machine and laughing about it. Why won’t he think of the children?
