Elliott has revamped role in 4th playoff trip with Cowboys

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Ezekiel Elliott is no longer the lead running back for the Dallas Cowboys. The two-time rushing champ shares the backfield role with Tony Pollard. The understudy is the team’s leading rusher going into a wild-card playoff game at Tampa Bay on Monday night. Elliott’s teammates and coaches grade his value on a scale beyond production on the field. Quarterback Dak Prescott is the leader among Elliott’s supporters. They’ve been the face of the Dallas offense since their remarkable rookie season together in 2016.
