Ezekial Elliott is dealing with some early injury issues in training camp.
A sore right hamstring has given the Dallas Cowboys' rookie running back an uncertain status early on. Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told ESPN's Todd Archer on Wednesday that the rookie running back will miss "some time" as a result of the injury that kept him from finishing Tuesday's practice.
Jones' timeline doesn't provide much information, but a report from ESPN's Ed Werder suggests Elliott could be sidelined for about a week.
Elliott, selected No. 4 overall, entered his debut training camp with every opportunity to earn the featured role behind a dominant Cowboys offensive line.
Free-agent addition Alfred Morris will temporarily take on the bulk of the first-team snaps as the summer practice schedule moves forward. Darren McFadden, meanwhile, remains sidelined as he recovers from a broken elbow suffered at home this offseason.
