Cowboys News: Elliott status update, Washington return put on pause, Wisconsin weather warnings

Ezekiel Elliott was back at practice, and he was wearing extra gear.

 We’ve got the latest on his status for Sunday, including why he may not be trying to rush back this week in Green Bay.

 Elliott also shared his thoughts on the locker room’s growing campaign to bring Odell Beckham Jr. to Dallas.

Elsewhere, find out why the Cowboys’ schedule will force James Washington to wait another week to get into the mix in practice,

hear which run play had Zack Martin begging the sideline to keep sending it in,

and look ahead to how non-freezing weather might be a bigger factor than you realize at Lambeau this Sunday.

 Also, we’ll get into why Tarell Basham is coming back to the defense at just the right time,

 we’ll crunch the numbers on how many wins Dallas ends up with,

and we’ll say farewell to a former player who occupies a unique footnote in Cowboys history. That and more in this edition of News and Notes.

Jerry Jones said he expected his star back to suit up Sunday,

but Elliott himself is backing off that prediction. “I’m not sure if I’m ready to go,” he said Wednesday. “

I just need to get some more reps to see where I’m at.” The two-time rushing champ acknowledged that him being

 “as healthy as possible down the run” to the postseason is a higher priority than

hurrying back for Week 10 versus Green Bay and risking further injury to his sprained knee.
