Ezekiel Elliott, RB (DAL)

Plays through knee injury in 2021

Elliott said after Sunday's 23-17 wild-card loss to the 49ers that he played through a partially torn PCL during the 2021 season, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

After doing just enough in Week 18 to surpass 1,000 rushing yards for the fourth time in six pro campaigns, Elliott didn't fare as well in Dallas' sole playoff game, eking out 31 yards on 12 carries and gathering in one of four targets for no yards. Game script played a role in his lack of touches, as the Cowboys were in catch-up mode for much of the contest, forcing Dak Prescott to go to the air 44 times. Afterward, Elliott provided an update on his health, which was reflected on injury reports for much of the season, first in Week 5 and then again Weeks 10-18. However, he didn't miss a game and doesn't expect to require surgery on his knee. Knowing that, Elliott should be back to full health by the start of the offseason program.
