Tony Pollard: Whatever they ask me to carry, I got it

Michael Holley and Jim Trotter talk about parity in the league and whether it actually exists or exists only amongst the mediocre.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has missed only one game to injury in his career, sitting out a game in 2020 with a calf strain. He is headed toward missing a second, with Elliott unlikely to play with a knee sprain.

I don’t know right now,” Elliott said Wednesday, via Layten Praytor of the team website. “We still have a lot of time before Sunday. But right now, we’re just focused on getting me as healthy as I can.”

Tony Pollard is ready for whatever he’s asked to do Sunday against the Bears.

“Next guy up,” Pollard said. “In this league, that’s the only thing that is guaranteed [is] injuries. So, it’s expected, and the next guy has to be ready to step in.”

Pollard had season highs with 13 carries for 105 yards against the Giants in Week 3 but had his most touches Sunday against the Lions when he had 14 touches for 109 yards. His single-game career highs are 14 carries and 18 touches.

“Whatever they ask me to carry, I got it,” Pollard said. “I’m always trying to go out there and show what I can do. Prove myself right; prove others wrong and play team ball.”
