In 2017, during the six-game suspension, Ezekiel Elliott went to train at Cabo San Lucas facility. When he returned in a game against Seattle Seahawks, he made 118 total yards, 97 rushing yards, and a touchdown.
Ezekiel is still waiting for a contract extension, although he has two years remaining on his current deal. The players are eager to welcome the rushing titleholder back when he finally settles an agreement.
When Elliott was suspended in 2017, Alfred Morris joined Cowboys as a starting back. He was also in training on Tuesday, and he was invited to training on Monday after Elliott failed to avail in practice for four days. Cowboys’ vice president Jones acknowledged that they would not sign a new player if Elliott was present.
Cowboys still seem focused on Morris; they called his agents for the first time after acquiring him in a draft in April. Dallas offered him a spot in 2018 since they didn’t want to lose him.
Cowboys have assured to keep both Elliott alongside Morris; there is no speculation whether he will be there when Elliott returns.
Garret also assured that they like Morris and they won’t let him go.
