The Dallas Cowboys have been hit by injuries in training camp this month.
Backup quarterback Kellen Moore broke his ankle earlier in the week, and now rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott is out with a hamstring injury.
Elliott was the No. 4 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft after a stellar season at Ohio State.
With Elliott sidelined, Dallas likely will lean more on veterans Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris. The Cowboys’ passing attack also should see improvement with starting quarterback Tony Romo healthy again.
