Ezekiel Elliott’s car accident didn’t keep him down long.
The Cowboys running back returned to the practice field Tuesday as the team began its second week of organized team activities. The NFL’s leading rusher missed all three practices last week after his involvement in a minor accident.
Elliott was hit as he returned from a charity event on May 21. Unlike an accident in January of this year, when Elliott was driving, he was a passenger in this collision.
Head coach Jason Garrett said last week that Elliott experienced some body and neck stiffness due to the accident. He was held out of practice as a precaution.
“We felt like it was the right thing to do to keep him out,” Garrett said last week.
Elliott was cleared for Tuesday’s practice at The Star and is expected to take part for the remainder of the week.
