Ezekiel Elliott’s knee injury doesn’t appear to concern Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who said as much during an interview on 1053.3 The Fan on Friday.
The owner recalled all-time great backs Emmitt Smith — who led the Cowboys to three Super Bowl triumphs under Jones — and Jim Brown in an attempt to get his point across.
“I can remember Jimmy Brown, I can remember Emmitt Smith, every time they got up after a run, you’d think they weren’t going to make it to the huddle,” Jones said, per The Dallas Morning News’ Jon Machota.
Jerry Jones on @1053thefan: Ezekiel Elliott has not been compromised by his knee issue. "I can remember Jimmy Brown, I can remember Emmitt Smith, every time they got up after a run, you'd think they weren't going to make it to the huddle." Basically he thinks Zeke will be fine
