Status of Ezekiel Elliott, Damien Harris For Cowboys-Patriots Match Revealed

The status of Ezekiel Elliot and Damien Harris has been revealed ahead of the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys match up today. The Patriots are coming off of a big win against the Houston Texans which was much needed. The offense has been stagnant recently and is being led by a rookie QB Mac Jones. There have been a few questions on the running backs going into the game on both sides.

It sounds like both Ezekiel Elliot and Damien Harris will both be starting on their respective teams. Elliot recently talked about it before their game with the New England Patriots.

“I fell on the pylon,” said the Cowboys RB. “That thing is kinda hard. Maybe we should find a new spot for it. … I think it is foamy, but it’s hard. The base of it is hard too. It’s definitely not soft. It definitely hurt. It kinda stabbed me. I lost my wind.”

Other than the running backs, the Patriots need to focus on the QB position, which has been less than stellar. Belichick recently talked about his time with Mac Jones.

“It wasn’t perfect,” Belichick acknowledged, “but we battled and played better situational football than we have in some of the other games.”

“Got to give a lot of credit to Josh [McDaniels], offensive coaches, offensive line,” said Belichick. “Those guys did a really good job of hanging in there. I thought they really went about the challenge this week of replacing some good players in that group. I thought they played hard. We got some runs to balance off the game there.”

“I thought the blocked punt was a key play in the game for us, even though we only got a field goal out of it,” Belichick explained.

“Mac gave it to us all day,” noted Belichick. “He moved the ball. I thought he made a lot of good decisions. There were some checks that he had to make that he made throughout the day.”

“Mac’s been good for us all year in terms of his leadership, his resilience, and kind of counting on him to do the right thing,” added Belichick. “He really does it at a high level, so it’s been impressive.”
