Cowboys reportedly "preparing to be without Ezekiel Elliott" (hamstring) for Week 9

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

What It Means:

Elliott is officially listed as questionable as he deals with a hamstring injury, but according to Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News, the team is apparently preparing to play without its star running back. Assuming that's the case, Tony Pollard would be vaulted into the lead running back role - but it'd be in an extremely tough matchup against the vaunted Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

The Steelers have been elite at stopping opposing ground games, ranking 2nd in the NFL in adjusted net expected points allowed per pass play.
