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.
