Cowboys rookies seek roles behind star RB Ezekiel Elliott

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Tony Pollard returned kicks and caught passes while growing up admiring Reggie Bush, making it easy to believe the former Memphis running back would be a change-of-pace option behind two-time NFL rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott for the Dallas Cowboys.

The rookie fourth-round pick is also 6-foot, 210 pounds, with plans to put on a little more weight. So running between the tackles isn't something Pollard fears as the Cowboys look to ease the load on a star with 1,003 touches in his first three seasons.

"I know people think he's going to be this gadget guy," running backs coach Gary Brown said. "He's more than that. He's bigger than what you think he is and he runs powerful for a guy you think is a gadget guy. I think he can do all our runs and more, too."
