Ezekiel Elliott return: Cowboys unsure how they’ll use RB

Ezekiel Elliott’s availability for the remainder of the season has yet to be determined.

While speaking with reporters on Monday, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was noncommittal regarding how much the team will use the running back in their final two games now that he’s back from suspension.

“Just have to wait and see,” Garrett said, via ESPN. “Got to see how he is [Tuesday], got to see how he practices as the week goes on.”

The Cowboys don’t return to work until Tuesday and Elliott’s first practice since he was banned in late October will be Wednesday.

Elliott rushed for 783 yards and seven touchdowns while adding 19 receptions for 210 yards and two touchdowns before his six-game suspension was upheld. The Cowboys went 3-3 in his absence, the three losses being blowouts, but the team has rebounded to win three in a row. Thanks to their wild Sunday night victory over the Raiders, their playoff hopes remain alive.
