Ezekiel Elliott He knows it will be strange to return as a runner so soon. New England to the place where he starred in big games alongside quarterback Dak Prescott during seven seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.
The two-time rushing champion also knows that he has always controlled his emotions, a trait that will be put to the test assuming there is a massive roar of over 90 thousand fans who used to shout “Zeeeeeeeeke.”
Elliott He returns to the Cowboys’ home on Sunday, confident he can focus on football, but knowing he’s never been in a scene like this before.
“There are emotions,” Elliott said Wednesday in a conference call with reporters who cover the Cowboys. “I may do a good job of hiding them, but there will be some emotions. But I have to go out there and help my team win that football game.”
Elliott wasn’t too interested in repeating his offseason release in a cost-cutting move by the Cowboys. “Business is business“, he claimed.
Elliot hasn’t had the best start with New England
A slow start with the Patriots after a short training camp is turning around. Elliott rushed for a season-high 80 yards in a 15-10 win against the Jets. And the Cowboys They just gave up 222 yards on the ground.
The former Ohio State star is once again wearing his college No. 15 after choosing No. 21 with the Cowboys, who selected him fourth overall in 2016.
Elliott will ride the team bus to the visiting locker room on the other side of AT&T Stadium. After the game, he won’t have to wait for reporters at the home team, as was routine during his 52 games there.
“I don’t know what I’m expecting necessarily,” Elliott said. “It’s definitely going to be strange being in a different uniform, being in the away locker room. “But I think it will be a good experience to see the fans again.”
