The Dallas Cowboys were without Ezekiel Elliott last week, but owner Jerry Jones expects that to change this Sunday.

Appearing on 105.3 "The Fan," Jones was asked if the three-time Pro Bowl RB will be back in the lineup for this weekend's game against the Packers.

Jerry's response: "It's anticipated he'll be ready to go."

Tony Pollard ran wild when given the chance to be the lone man in the backfield in Dallas' 20-point win over the Bears.

The fourth-year man out of Memphis made the most of all 14 of his carries, rushing for 131 yards and three touchdowns on his way to a career day.

Jones has maintained that he believes the Cowboys are at their best when utilizing a two-back system. But many in Big D have salivated at the idea of Tony Pollard being the lead RB in Dallas.

In seven games, Elliott has gained 443 yards and four touchdowns on a modest 4.1 YPC.
