It hasn’t been a banner season for the Dallas Cowboys but Ezekiel Elliott continues to make the case as one of the best running backs in the NFL.

Elliott now has 50 receptions in a season for a third straight year, tying a franchise mark with the great Herschel Walker, one of the most dominant running backs of the 1980s.

The former Ohio State running back entered the season finale with a calf injury and has been seen on the FOX broadcast on the sidelines, being checked by the Cowboys medical personnel. There is a fairly good chance that he may not finish the game.

He came into the game with 937 yards on 20 carries with five touchdowns. A season ago, Elliott had 1,357 rushing yards with 12 touchdowns.

The former first-round pick is in his fifth season in the NFL, having topped 1,000 rushing yards in three of those seasons.
