Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a minor car crash on Wednesday morning, according to TMZ.
Ezekiel Elliott is a few days away from his first NFL playoff game, but it seems that he now has another issue to deal with beforehand. Elliott, according to TMZ, was involved in a car crash near the team’s practice facility in Frisco, Texas on Wednesday morning. Elliott reportedly rear-ended another driver. Luckily, it doesn’t appear that anyone was hurt. Here’s more, via TMZ:
A witness tells us … Elliott was driving a “huge black GMC truck” which rear-ended a black BMW. Cops and Cowboys security responded to the scene. We’re told Zeke “looked frustrated” but was “extremely nice and polite” to everyone who stopped to check in on him.
The Frisco PD confirmed the crash and tells us, “Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a minor vehicle crash this morning in the area of Dallas Parkway and Gaylord Parkway.”
“There were no injuries sustained as a result of the minor crash.”
Elliott’s status for Sunday’s game against the Packers is not expected to be affected.
Elliott, who was drafted fourth overall by the Cowboys in last year’s NFL Draft, led the league in rushing during his rookie year. Elliott ran for 1,631 yards on 322 carries – scoring 15 touchdowns in the process. He’ll need to be right if the Cowboys want to take down the red-hot Packers on Sunday.
Update: Elliott took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to let his fans know that he’s okay.
I'm good. I've been in bigger collisions. Lol
