Cardale Jones is keeping a close eye on his former Ohio State teammate and current Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott. Yes, their ties to the Buckeyes are an obvious reason, but Jones, a rookie QB for the Bills, tweeted that he wants to see Elliott break every Cowboys rushing record to stick it to Emmitt Smith.
Jones is referring to Smith’s tweet before the 2015 Sugar Bowl in which the Cowboys icon said that the only two running backs to focus on in that game played for the Crimson Tide — Derrick Henry and T.J. Yeldon. One problem, Elliott’s Buckeyes also were playing.
We will have a chance to see two other Very good backs tonight #ALAvsOSU both for Bama.
