Ezekiel Elliott Is Used To Playing On Teams With Multiple Capable QBs

The Cowboys have two quarterbacks capable of winning games. Ezekiel Elliott is used to situations like this.

Ezekiel Elliott, like every other Dallas Cowboys player, has to deal with the Dak Prescott-Tony Romo questions. The Pro Bowl quarterback was a full participant at practice today and could be active on Sunday at Pittsburgh, but Prescott remains the likely starter - for now, at least.

Playing on a team with multiple quarterbacks capable of winning games is nothing new for Elliott.

At Ohio State in 2014, Elliott played on a team that used three different quarterbacks over the course of the preseason/regular season - Braxton Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones - and that team won a national title. With the Buckeyes in 2015, Elliott played on a team that used both Barrett and Jones. That team went 12-1.

Elliott said the Cowboys' current situation reminds him of being at Ohio State. "That's nothing but a plus," he said.

Here's his full quote, via David Helman of DallasCowboys.com.

Basically, if you have Elliott in the background, and a good offensive line in front of him, you can play a lot of different quarterbacks and win.

The Cowboys and the Steelers are set to kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T. on FOX Sunday.
