Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was not on the field for the team’s first preseason game.
However, Elliott did take a snap for the second half, scoring on a 4-yard run to give Dallas a 14-13 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
The game was Elliott’s first since the Cowboys won the NFC West title with a win over the New Orleans Saints.
Elliott did not practice for the first three weeks of the season, but it is unknown whether the team will use him on special teams.
Elliott rushed for 78 yards and scored on a 23-yard touchdown run.
The Cowboys (2-2) did not get any help from the offense, but Elliott did have a season-high seven carries for 32 yards, including a 5-yard burst.
The rookie also had two receptions for 16 yards.
Elliott is the only player with more than 100 carries for the Cowboys this season.
