    Star Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott returned from his six-game suspension on Sunday as the Cowboys take on Seattle. Elliott had 97 rushing yards during the game, with 73 in the first half alone.

    Last week, during his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said they won't be easing running back Ezekiel Elliott into a heavy workload -- he's going to jump right in with 20-25 carries.

    Last week, Elliott agreed that if he did not get 200 yards in the game, he would turn over his game jersey to Seahawks Running Back Eric Dickerson. Dickerson holds the NFL's single season rushing record with 2,105 yards.

    Elliott rejoined the Cowboys last week after serving a six-game suspension for allegations of domestic violence.
