Pro Bowl recap: Ezekiel Elliott, pass rusher?
Pro Bowl week is complete.
The Cowboys-centric NFC squad – coached by the Cowboys’ staff with six participating Dallas players – wrapped up their week in Orlando with a 26-7 loss to the AFC in Sunday’s all-star game.
Some Cowboys highlights from a rainy Camping World Stadium:
-Ezekiel Elliott got involved in ‘all three phases,’ as Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett might say. In addition to his normal offensive duties (the league’s rushing champ had three carries for a game-best 33 yards and two catches for 14 yards) Elliott ran a 22-yard fake punt for a first down and entered the game as a third-down pass rusher in the third quarter, drawing big smiles from Garrett on the sideline. Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Saints running back Alvin Kamara also got a little work as situational pass rushers. Elliott also took snap at quarterback on a read-option handoff in the first quarter.
