    Tony Pollard hopes Ezekiel Elliott returns soon. Until the star running back ends his holdout Leighton Vander Esch Jersey White , though, Pollard is the team’s starter at the position.The rookie insists he’s ready for “whatever,” including Elliott remaining away from the team for the start of the season.“I 100 percent believe in myself,” Pollard said, via Jon Machota of Dak Prescott Jersey White , “so I feel like if that’s the case, if that happens, then I’ll be ready for it. I’m ready for whatever.”Pollard carried five times for 42 yards in last week’s preseason game against the Rams, including a 14-yard touchdown run. He made owner Jerry Jones briefly (and only jokingly) forget who Elliott is. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett cited Pollard’s poise and his “maturity beyond his years.”The Cowboys, though Womens Emmitt Smith Jersey , would rather have Elliott in their backfield with Pollard spelling him. Until then, it’s the Tony Pollard Show.“I see it being hard to beat us, especially when he comes back, and we get everything going,” Pollard said of the Cowboys’ backfield. Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee wants to play in 2019 Emmitt Smith Jersey , Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.That doesn’t mean Lee, who pondered retirement after the season, will play for the Cowboys.Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said last month that there is “no one we would have to have back more” than Lee. But Lee is scheduled to make $7 million in base salary and count $10.1 million against the salary cap.That’s expensive for a now-backup linebacker who missed nine games last season and has missed 51 in his nine-year career.The Cowboys can save $7 million against their cap by cutting Lee.The Cowboys drafted Jaylon Smith in the second round in 2016 and Leighton Vander Esch in the first round in 2018, and they have become among the best pair of young linebackers in the NFL. Lee helped Smith and Vander Esch this season in the meeting room, the locker room and on the field with his veteran leadership.
