Jerry Jones Doesn’t Want Ezekiel Elliott’s Carries to Dip


After investing their fourth overall pick in former Ohio State Buckeyes product Ezekiel Elliott, it’s safe to say Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has got his money worth. Not only is Elliott the clear favorite to win offensive Rookie of the Year honors, he’s in the hunt for the MVP award as well.

Through 11 games, Elliott has carried the ball 243 times for 1,199 yards to go along with 11 rushing touchdowns. When asked if Dallas should limit his touches moving forward, Jones quickly refrained from the notion.

At the age of 21, Elliott has plenty of miles to go before he breaks down.
