Cowboys beat writer Jon Machota believes RB Tony Pollard is in for his most productive season yet. Machota points to the departures of Amari Cooper, Cedrick Wilson and Blake Jarwin as reason for a boosted workload. Last year, Pollard totaled 169 touches in 15 games. The contract-year back currently holds a reasonable ADP of 8.04.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That's confirmation that he'll be available for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the 49ers.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said Monday that RB Tony Pollard (foot) will be "ready to roll" in Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the 49ers. It's confirmation that Pollard was held out of the regular-season finale as a precaution. Pollard averaged 7.7 carries and 3.7 targets over his final 3 games and is likely looking at a similar workload in the playoffs.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) has been downgraded to out for Saturday night's game vs. the Eagles. It's unclear if he suffered a setback with that foot or is just getting some rest with Dallas having already won the NFC East. Even with Pollard out, don't expect the Cowboys to overwork RB Ezekiel Elliott on Saturday. Corey Clement will mix in as the #2 RB.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He’ll be playing through a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot, so his role and effectiveness are in question. Pollard is a risky fantasy play today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) is expected to play vs. the Giants today. But Schefter adds that, "Dallas could have a slightly more cautious approach with him" as he battles that partially torn plantar fascia. It's tough to project exactly how much work Pollard will get today, making him a risky fantasy play.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. It sounds like Pollard is on track to return for this one, but it’s unclear how much volume he’ll get and how effective he’ll be with that partially torn plantar fascia.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) will return to practice on Wednesday. It'll be "more of a walkthrough-type practice," HC Mike McCarthy said.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) is inactive for today’s game vs. Washington. That leaves only Corey Clement and JaQuan Hardy behind Ezekiel Elliott on the depth chart. Zeke should take on a bigger share of the backfield work today -- although we’re still expecting a pass-heavy game plan from Dallas.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) won't play vs. Washington today, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. That leaves Corey Clement as Dallas' #2 RB and should mean an increased role for RB Ezekiel Elliott. Despite his ongoing knee trouble, Zeke looks like a borderline RB1 based on volume alone.

"There isn’t a lot of optimism" for Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) to play against Washington today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Pollard is "fighting for it," Rapoport adds, and a final decision won't be made until pregame warmups. It's a 1 pm ET kickoff, so we'll get Pollard's status around 11:30 am ET. But he'll be a risky play if he ends up active. If not, expect RB Ezekiel Elliott to take on more volume. Dallas' only other RBs on the active roster are Corey Clement and JaQuan Hardy.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Washington. He didn’t practice all week and said Thursday that he’ll be a game-time decision with his torn plantar fascia. Pollard will obviously come with elevated risk if he ends up playing. If not, Dallas would likely be forced to give RB Ezekiel Elliott more touches. Zeke, by the way, put in a full week of practice.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard told reporters Thursday that he has a torn plantar fascia in his left foot. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's a partial tear. Pollard expects to be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with Washington. This injury tends to be a pain management issue, so it is possible that Pollard plays through it. But he'd obviously come with elevated risk in fantasy lineups. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard's rehab is "intended to have him on track to play Sunday at Washington," HC Mike McCarthy said Thursday, per The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. Pollard suffered a foot strain on his 58-yard TD in last week's win over the Saints, McCarthy revealed. He carried twice more after that score. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Pollard over the next few days.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard missed Wednesday's practice with a foot issue. “He’s fine,” a source tells The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. Dallas did sign RB Ito Smith to the practice squad on Wednesday, though, suggesting that there's at least some concern about Pollard's Week 14 availability. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is not listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. He was listed as a full participant in practice all 3 days. We're expecting Elliott to cede more work than usual to RB Tony Pollard -- like he did on Thanksgiving -- making both guys RB2s. We still prefer Zeke over Pollard if you're choosing between the 2.
