Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott back at practice

As expected, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott returned to the practice field Tuesday.

NFL Media's Jane Slater reported that the rookie is participating in individual drills after dealing with a hamstring tweak.

The No. 4 overall pick had tweaked his hamstring two weeks ago. The Cowboys planned to take it slowly with their stud rookie runner.

Elliott took part in some walk-throughs, but after missing the team's first preseason game, getting him back on the practice field in pads is a positive step.

Fantasy Impact: 

Expect the Cowboys to play it safe with their top pick, especially given that hamstrings can be a nagging, persistent injury if not fully healed.
