Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. We’re expecting him to share backfield work with Tony Pollard, leaving both guys as just RB3 or flex plays.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play against the Eagles today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Zeke remained limited in practice all week and might be returning to a committee backfield alongside Tony Pollard. Last time we saw Elliott 2 weeks ago, he tallied 12 carries and 3 targets to Pollard's 11 carries and 2 targets.

The Cowboys list RB Ezekiel Elliott as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles with the calf injury that kept him out last week. Elliott put in limited practices all week and seems likely to take the field. Fantasy football owners might be better off if he turns up inactive, though. If Elliott does play, we'd bet on something near an even touch split between Elliott and Pollard. We'll keep an eye on Elliott's status leading up to the early Sunday games.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) will be limited in practice on Wednesday, HC Mike McCarthy said. That presumably puts Zeke on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We might see him and Tony Pollard share backfield work like they did in Week 14 -- especially after Pollard's big outing vs. the 49ers last week.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. It’s a surprise after reports all week that he’d play through the calf injury again. His absence today leaves Tony Pollard in a feature role. It’s a tough matchup behind a beat-up offensive line, but projected volume has Pollard in the RB2 mix.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It’s just a matter of how effective he’ll be," Rapoport adds. Zeke totaled just 59 yards on 14 touches in a plus matchup against the Bengals last week. He's just a RB3 today

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was listed as "did not practice" all week. He's officially questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. It sounds like Zeke will continue to battle through this calf injury, but note that he tallied 12 carries and 3 targets last week to Tony Pollard’s 11 carries and 2 targets. We could see a similar split on Sunday. Elliott is no better than a RB3 or flex play.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard much concern about Zeke’s availability for this one.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play against the Bengals today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Zeke was limited in practice all week and carries elevated risk in fantasy lineups. But the matchup means he belongs in most fantasy lineups.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. We've heard nothing to suggest that Zeke is in danger of missing this one, but the calf issue obviously adds risk to his fantasy profile. Elliott owners should look to add RB Tony Pollard as insurance.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He was limited in practice all week, and OC Kellen Moore said Friday that it’s a “wait-and-see thing” in terms of how big a workload Zeke will be able to handle. That, Dallas’ offensive line problems and this brutal matchup leave Elliott as a RB3 for Week 9.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) "has a good chance" to play against the Steelers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He looked good at Saturday’s workout, but will be tested today pre-game to make sure he can open it up," Rapoport adds. Cowboys-Steelers doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so we won't get Zeke's official status until 3 pm. If you're hoping to use him, make sure to have a backup option in place. Tony Pollard would handle the vast majority of Dallas' RB touches if Elliott ends up inactive.

Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Cowboys are "preparing to be without" RB Ezekiel Elliott for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Dallas has elevated FB Sewo Olonilua from the practice squad to add backfield depth. Elliott will still reportedly test his hamstring before the game to see if he'll be active. But it seems likely he'll at least see a more limited role than usual. That should mean more time for Tony Pollard, who becomes a fringe PPR option if you're hard up for a RB.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers after a limited week of practice. OC Kellen Moore said Friday that it’s a “wait-and-see thing” in terms of how big a workload Zeke will be able to handle. He was already a RB2 in this spot and now comes with more downside. We’ll see what we hear about Elliott’s status on Sunday morning. Expect to see more RB Tony Pollard, but the matchup dampens his appeal.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been limited in the first 2 practices of the week with a hamstring issue. While we haven't heard any concern about his availability for Sunday's game against the Steelers, beat writer Clarence Hill hears that "there is a question about his work load." So on top of shoddy QB play and poor offensive line play, Zeke now has this hamstring injury to worry about. We'll monitor the situation. Hill adds that "Tony Pollard is prepared for a bigger load."

Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Look for 7th-round rookie QB Ben DiNucci to get the start in that one. He projects as a significant downgrade for Dallas' offense, although it's not like Dalton played well the past 2 weeks.

Here's what Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott told the media on Wednesday about his case of Coronavirus: “I would say I had maybe one or two days when I felt symptoms. Even then, it wasn’t too bad. I had a cough and a little bit of shortness of breath. Now, I feel good. I feel normal.” Although there's still plenty we don't know about this virus, it shouldn't be an issue for Zeke by the time training camp gets going. You could even argue that his fantasy value gets a boost if he's now immune to getting sick during the season.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott recently tested positive for COVID-19, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Zeke is reportedly 1 of multiple Cowboys and Texans players who have tested positive. The identities of the others have not been released. Elliott is "feeling good" now, his agent said. The longer-term impacts of the virus are still unknown, though, so Elliott's status will need to be monitored. Of course, players testing positive figures to be a fairly common occurrence this summer and into the 2020 campaign.

The Cowboys will name HC Mike McCarthy their new HC, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. An official announcement is expected later this week. McCarthy spent 2006-2018 as Packers HC, compiling a 125-77-2 record, 9 playoff appearances and 1 Super Bowl. He was an OC before that and figures to have a big say in the Cowboys offense. But we'll see who McCarthy brings aboard as his OC.

The Cowboys have fired HC Jason Garrett. The move seemed inevitable but for some reason took until a full week after Dallas' season had ended to happen. Garrett spent the past 13 seasons with the Cowboys as either OC or HC. He finishes with an 85-67 record as HC but had far too many underachieving seasons. 2019 was chief among them, with Dallas going 8-8 despite a loaded roster. We'll see who the Cowboys tab as their new HC. We're also curious to see if they can hang on OC Kellen Moore, who showed promise at times as the play-caller this past year.
