Cowboys RB Tony Pollard will get shot at 1,000 yards vs. Commanders

Micah Parsons won’t wear a club over his left hand against Washington.

FRISCO — If you wondered how the Cowboys’ running back duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard would do, well check the numbers. Pollard has 988 rushing yards and Elliott has 866. Pollard, who missed the last game against Tennessee with a thigh injury, is expected to play Sunday and the objective is to get him 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

“I think there’s definitely some common sense to a player going over 1,000 yards for a first time,” McCarthy said of whether the team will try to help Pollard reach that goal. “I definitely will be engaged in that.”

Elliott has rushed for over 1,000 yards four times, including last season where he gained 1,002 yards. Elliott needs just 42 yards from scrimmage to reach 1,000. It would be the seventh consecutive season where he’s done that and second-longest streak in franchise history, behind Emmitt Smith’s mark of 11.

Yet in a contract year, this has become about Pollard and what he’s done.

“Man, it means a lot to get Tony to 1,000,” Elliott said. “He need what (12)? I mean, he’s going to get it.”

Parsons playing with a cut hand

So Micah Parsons revealed he won’t be wearing a club over his left hand for the Washington game. While he won’t say how he suffered a laceration on his hand, the Cowboys’ best pass rusher will now have two free hands to make plays. In the Titans game, last week, Parsons recovered a fumble with his right hand.

“It was pretty challenging,” he said.

When asked how he suffered the cut, Parsons refused to say. However, when asked if he had burned his hand making soup, he quipped, “No. I’m a pretty good cook.”

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Fan (KRLD-FM) the hand is healed.
