Cowboys RB Tony Pollard returns to practice field


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Just a few months after his season ended with a lower leg injury, Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard is back on the practice field for OTAs.

That said, the Cowboys are going at a slow 'walk-through' style pace with their initial workouts, which is allowing for the still recovering Pollard to participate.

According to reports, Pollard exited practice after 20 minutes, after jogging through the workouts. The 20 minute time frame was pre determined by team medical staff.

This comes as good news for the Cowboys, with Pollard emerging as the team's No. 1 running threat last season, and arguably their most versatile player.

Before his injury, Pollard had rushed 193 times for 1,007 yards and nine scores, with 39 catches for 371 yards and three more touchdowns.

Heading into 2023, Pollard will, barring another big move by the Cowboys, be the team's lead back, signing a $10.091 million franchise tag this offseason.
