    Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott (center, left) is surrounded by cameras and reporters following afternoon practice at training camp in Oxnard, California, Sunday, July 31, 2016. Elliott politely declined answering any questions about his off the field accusations during his first camp interview.

    Fans looking to see rookie Ezekiel Elliott Friday night in Arlington are going to be bummed out because he is not going to be playing.

    The fourth overall pick from Ohio State told the media in Oxnard, California, this when asked if he will play against the Dolphins in preseason, "I don't think so." He only did individual work in practice Tuesday. 

    Smart move by the Cowboys since the rookie just got back to practice Tuesday afternoon after a mild hamstring issue.  He's been sidelined since August 2nd.

    The Cowboys travel to Seattle to play the important "dress rehearsal" game next week so I expect him to make his debut then saying, "I think I'll be back full speed next week."
