Jones discussed another notable item Tuesday morning regarding one of the Cowboys star players and their status for Thursday’s game. It was reported late last week that the team was looking at restricting Ezekiel Elliott’s reruns with the Saints in an effort to give him a long break, and they was even thinking of bringing him in on Thursday.
Jones said on Tuesday that was not the case.
Elliott hit 720 yards of dash and scored eight touchdowns with 160 attempts in 11 games this season, while adding 38 hits for 228 yards and one point through the air.
