Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott 'ready for normal workload'

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott says he's ready for more work in Week 2 versus the Washington Redskins.

What It Means:

Elliott only played 37 snaps (54.0 percent) in the Cowboys' opener, finishing with 63 yards on 11 touches while ceding work to Tony Pollard. “I think I’m ready now for a normal workload," Elliott stated. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett expressed caution, noting the team is cognizant of Elliott's missed practice time over the summer. Game script figures to be the key determinant for Elliott's usage. If the Cowboys build a lead, Pollard will likely be more involved. They're 5.5-point road favorites in Week 2.
