Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard expects to play against New York Giants despite foot injury

The Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard, who is considered doubtful for Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium against the New York Giants with a foot injury, is expected to play, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Saturday.

That said, Dallas could be a little more careful with him because of the injury, a source told Schefter.

Pollard is Ezekiel Elliott’s backup and the Cowboys’ second greatest rusher. He played in 12 games this season, racking up 602 yards on 107 carries and two touchdowns.

A change of pace back often sought for yardage in third place, Pollard is also the leading receiver from Dallas running backs with 259 yards.

The Dallas backfield will play a big part on Sunday, if the rivalry’s first game is any indication. In a 44-20 win over the Giants on October 10, Elliott ran 110 yards and a score, while Pollard collected 75 yards. Pollard also had four catches for 28 yards in that win.

The Cowboys have won two in a row and have comfortably controlled the NFC East at 9-4. The Giants are 4-9 and have only one win within the division.
