A lot can happen between now and six weeks from now. It will be week 15, two games before the end of the 2017 NFL season. That’s how long Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension is expected to last with the final week of that suspension being the week the Cowboys face the Raiders.
When I say a lot can happen, primarily I’m talking about with regard to the Raiders. By then, the Raiders could be out of playoff contention altogether, at which point Elliott’s participation wouldn’t mean much from the Raiders’ point of view. But should the Raiders still be holding out hope of securing a spot in the playoffs, it could be pretty substantial.
As a rookie last season Elliott led the NFL in rushing by a WIDE margin. His 1631 rushing yards was 318 yards more than the next highest rushing total. He hasn’t slowed down this season as he leads the league with 97.
