Cowboys holding Ezekiel Elliott out of OTA practices after car accident

Ezekiel Elliott will not participate in Dallas Cowboys offseason workouts again on Wednesday, the second straight day he’s missed.

Via ESPN’s Todd Archer and Adam Schefter, Elliott was involved in a car accident on Sunday; he was a passenger in the car.

The pair further reported that Elliott “did not suffer any significant injuries” but the Cowboys are being cautious with the running back, who led the NFL in carries and rushing yards last year as a rookie and was named All-Pro and a Pro Bowler in the process.

Cowboys’ in-house reporter Nick Eatman confirmed the accident, adding that Elliott suffered a head injury in Sunday night’s crash.

Head coach Jason Garrett spoke with reporters on Wednesday afternoon and gave a brief update on Elliott. Garrett said Elliott will be held out of practice on Thursday as well due to his “body soreness, neck soreness.” But Garrett added that the team expects the running back to take part in OTAs next week.

It hasn’t been a good year for Elliott and cars: in January, he was involved in a “fender bender” on his way to the Dallas team facility in the days leading up to the Cowboys’ first playoff game.
