NFL running back Ezekiel Elliot will play in the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders on Saturday, August 26, 2017.

According to, the Dallas Cowboys player will play around 8-12 snaps in his first preseason appearance. It will likely be the only time we will see him play during the preseason.

The next time Elliot will make it on the field depends on the appeal of his 6 game suspension that’s scheduled for August 29, 2017. Elliot violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy after his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson made accusations of domestic violence against him.

However, the Cowboys aren’t worried at all regardless of the appeal. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott explained, “I know the offensive line is going to open up holes, no matter who it is [running the ball]. We’ve got the pass game to go with it. We’re not really worried about it. As I said before, there’s no panic here in Dallas. We’re just ready to get going and excited to be out there with whoever it is we’ve got.”

Sounds like the Cowboys might be good without Ezekiel Elliot. What do you think?
