Ezekiel Elliott

The Ezekiel Elliott the Dallas Cowboys will feature in Week 16 will be remarkably more fit than the Ezekiel Elliott we saw before he left for his six-game suspension.

On Tuesday, Dez Bryant told reporters Elliott looks slimmer now that he’s back with the team.

Based on the pictures shared on the NBC broadcast Sunday night by Michele Tafoya, it’s clear Elliott is ripped.

Elliott has been spending most of his time at a resort near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, doing extensive training. Jane Slater of NFL Network detailed his time in Cabo, noting he only left for two days during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Ian Rapoport added there is a full-length documentary about his time away from the Cowboys that is currently in the works.

Last year’s leading rusher has already set quite the goal for himself in a bet with Eric Dickerson for his first game back, which will be against the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday.

Before he was suspended, Elliott had 783 yards and seven touchdowns rushing this season, appearing in eight games.
