Ezekiel Elliott, RB (DAL)

Ready for Thursday

Elliott (knee) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

After opening Week 12 prep with two straight limited listings on Cowboys injury reports, Elliott logged a full practice session Wednesday, effectively clearing him to play Thursday. In his return from a two-game absence this past Sunday at Minnesota, Elliott started but took on a smaller snap count (21) than fellow running back Tony Pollard (39). Both players got in on the act in a 40-3 win, but Elliott's 16 touches went for 47 yards from scrimmage and two rushing touchdowns, while Pollard's 21 touches resulted in 189 total yards and two receiving scores. The breakdown of playing time could tilt back in Elliott's favor a bit more Thursday, though Pollard's excellent production in recent weeks may make it difficult for the Cowboys to take him off the field.
