Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is questionable to play Sunday against the Packers.

Elliott missed the Cowboys’ last game after hyperextending his right knee in the Oct. 23 game against the Lions.

On his Friday radio interview on 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones remained optimistic about Elliott’s availability.

“I do [think he’ll play],” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Everything I’ve seen — I watched him yesterday, got a report on the practice. . . . I think he’s on the go.”

Elliott was limited in practice all week.

Elliott has 109 carries for 443 yards and four touchdowns while sharing time in the backfield with Tony Pollard this season. Pollard has 81 carries for 506 yards and five touchdowns.

Linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) missed practice all week, and the Cowboys have ruled him out for Sunday.

No other player has a designation.

  1. Not sure why Jerry Jones wants to rush Zeke back when Tony Pollard has been outplaying him for a couple years now

  2. They should slow walk him. It seems he’s done. Maybe 100% Zeke can at least contribute down the stretch.

  3. Zeke had a ton of carries at Ohio State and after a few years in the NFL is looking tired. You lose a step in this league and it makes a difference.

  4. Scared of losing his spot. As long as he’s healthy he know Jerry will play him because of his salary. Nothing to do with he’s a lesser back at this point in his career than pollard.
