Rookie running back Ezekiel "Zeke" Elliott hasn't played a snap for the Dallas Cowboys, but the hype over the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft is picking up. 

The Cowboys have been taking it slow with Zeke, who hasn't done much during the last couple of weeks due to a hamstring injury.

He didn't play in the first preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams and he will not play Friday night against the Miami Dolphins.
