“I do think Zeke playing in the game last year against Seattle (in Week 3 of the preseason ) was good for him and good for our team.

Will it be in the preseason or will they have to wait until October 29 against the Redskins when his suspension is finished?

Coach Jason Garrett apparently hasn't made that decision yet, and is quoted as saying "I just haven't had those discussions with him." The fact Elliott is healthy and practicing but isn't being told if he will play leads many to believe that Garrett is leaning towards not playing the star running back.

In his daily press conference, Garrett gave his reasons on why Elliott doesn't need to play, stating "There are plenty of running backs in the league that don't play that much in the preseason… Those guys just seem to have a feel, they can get a feel for what they need to do in practice if the practice is competitive and they practice in the right environment, which we believe we do."

Garrett did go on to say if Elliott were to play against the Raiders it would be similar to the eight to twelve-play workload he got against the Seahawks in preseason last year.
