Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott racks up 24 total yards in preseason debut

Ezekiel Elliott To Play Against Oakland Saturday, Will Be Only Action Of Preseason

Garrett told reporters on Tuesday that Elliott could either sit out or see as many as eight to 12 snaps in the contest, which amounts to what is a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

"He's got his representatives that work with him on that", Jones said.

For Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, this may be the last time he plays a snap until late October.

If the suspension is upheld or even reduced, the Cowboys will go with McFadden, Rod Smith and Alfred Morris at tailback in Elliott's absence.

Jones said the Cowboys would not make a filing on Elliott's behalf prior to the hearing, but the team will have a representative in NY.


Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram noted over the weekend that Jones continues to feel "blindsided" by the league's decision. Both sides are slated to have final arguments following the appeal hearing next Friday, September 1. "He was at my (Hall of Fame) party and so you weren't at that party unless you were a good friend I promise you that". Elliott still claims that he is falsely accused of domestic violence, while Jones is furious because National Football League had promised that they wouldn't discipline Elliott due to the lack of evidence, but the punishment came anyway.

"I don't know", Jones joked. He's very competent, but the main thing is he's a guy that I admire a lot.

The NFL's investigation said it uncovered "substantial credible evidence" that Elliott was guilty of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend, which was surprising after some of the confident statements Jones made about the case. He's come through it the hard way.

Garrett, who plans for Elliott to be back with the team on Wednesday following the suspension hearing, said the Cowboys have been preparing like he will be ready for the September 10 season opener against the New York Giants. Against Oakland, Elliott had six carries for 18 yards, and he caught two passes for six yards.
