Tony Pollard trying to get 1,000 yards, Zeke Elliott too?
Cowboys running back Tony Pollard will play against Washington after missing the Titans game with a thigh bruise.
Pollard, who leads the Cowboys with 988 yards rushing, needs 12 yards to reach 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career. He would become the ninth 토토사이트 Cowboys running back to reach 1,000 rushing yards in a season.
And the Cowboys badly want him to reach that milestone, especially fellow running back and two-time NFL rushing champ Ezekiel Elliott.
Elliott will not lead the rushing for the first time in his career but he is Pollard’s biggest cheerleader and supporter.
“It mean a lot to get Tony to 1,000,” Elliott said. “He need what (12). I mean, he’s going to get it.”
Elliott has 866 yards rushing. He and Pollard are already the first tandem in Cowboys history to both top more than 800 yards. With 34 yards, they would become the first tandem to top 900 yards.
But he has loftier goals. He’s looking for a 1,000 also.
“Yeah, I’m shooting for it too,” Elliott said. “I’m about like what 140 yards. We’ve talked about it. There’s still light for it to happen. It would be cool.”
It would take Elliott’s best game of the season for it to happen. He has not had 100 yards in any game in 2022 and if doesn’t get it against Washington it would make the first time in his career that he has topped 100 yards in a game.
