There was a scare last week when Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott suffered a hamstring injury, but the rookie first rounder says he will be fine.
“It’s a little bit sore,” Elliott said in a radio interview with 103.3 KESN in Dallas. “I felt a little tug in it but it’s more being preventative…thinking about the bigger picture.”
“I’m not worried at all about it,” he said. “I’m just honestly focused on getting back right because these things can linger all season if you don’t take care of them.”
“It’s important for me to get back as soon as possible,” he said. “The more fast game reps you get the more you’ll learn. [The goal is] to get back as fast as possible but make sure you’re healthy.”
Zeke seems like he is ready to shine early. The Cowboys and their fans are hoping for the same.
