Ezekiel Elliott good to go vs. Bengals despite questionable designation due to calf injury

Ezekiel Elliott Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is expected to suit up against the Cincinnati Bengals for Week 14 action without any limitations, as per NFL Network‘s Ian Rapoport. He was previously listed as questionable, with what has been diagnosed as a calf bruise which shouldn’t be too concerning for the Cowboys heading into the match.

Elliott hasn’t been his usual self and has been struggling all throughout the 2020 season. The absence of Dak Prescott makes it much harder for him to regain momentum. The franchise QB went down with a season-ending injury back in Week 5 against the New York Giants.

The former Ohio State Buckeye didn’t miss any of the team’s games amid his calf injury and still managed to appear in their most recent tiff against the Baltimore Ravens which aren’t playing at their best as well.

Elliott still remained at the forefront of his team’s rushing attack as he notched 77 rushing yards on 18 carries in the game. However, the team’s chemistry on both ends of the field was evidently out of sync as the Ravens ran away with the 34-17 victory to drop Dallas to a dismal 3-9 win-loss record.

The Cowboys now find themselves settling in the cellar-dwelling spot of the NFC East division and are merely looking forward to closing out the remainder of the season with strong performances. With their star rusher now in better playing condition, the Cowboys are hoping to arrest a two-game losing skid at the expense of the struggling Cincinnati Bengals.
