The Cowboys can clinch a playoff spot this weekend and they’re expected to have running back Tony Pollard on hand as they try to book their passage to the postseason.

Pollard did not play last Sunday because of a foot injury and he was listed as questionable after getting in a pair of limited practices during the week. According to multiple reports, however, Pollard will be active against the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

The Cowboys promoted JaQuan Hardy from the practice squad for the second straight week, so they have added depth in the backfield in the event Pollard’s outlook changes after pregame warmups.

Pollard has run 107 times for 602 yards and two touchdowns so far this season. He trails Ezekiel Elliott in rushing yards, but his 5.6 yards per carry leads the team.

  1. I wouldn’t play him. Let him rest would rather have him for the Cardinals game then the Giants. We beat Washington without out him so me thinks we got this.

  2. Pollard is the Cowboys’ best RB. He’s very underrated, and Elliott seems to have aged. I don’t see every Cowboys game, but when I do, Pollard is the RB who sparks the team with big plays, and he turns small gains into bigger gains. Elliott’s yards per game has decreased every year he’s been in the league, and yards per reception has done the same. He looks like a set of good tires that has 70,000 miles on them. He’s nowhere near the same RB he once was. Don Perkins, Calvin Hill, Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith. You can’t hide from Father Time.
