Ahead of Ezekiel Elliott’s first team practice since June, I’m told the plan right now is about 20-25 reps on Sunday, rookie Tony Pollard behind him and FB Jamize Olawale as your best blitz pickup guy on 3rd downs. Things can always change but this is the plan heading into today.
The plan might be to hold Ezekiel Elliott to 20-25 snaps, but much will depend on his conditioning. If Elliott truly is near game shape, his time on the field could easily rise. This number is likely Elliott's floor this week, but also puts Tony Pollard into play as a flex option on the surface.
