Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will play in Saturday night's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett made the announcement at a news conference Thursday morning.
Garrett said Elliott would have a similar workload to last year's third preseason game, when he had seven carries for 48 yards against the Seattle Seahawks.
Elliott faces a six-game suspension to start the 2017 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. Elliott has appealed the suspension.
