Ezekiel Elliott involved in minor car accident, says he’s ‘been in bigger collisions’
The Dallas Cowboys got a bit of a scare Wednesday morning when star running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a minor car accident. It occurred near the team’s practice facility in Frisco, Texas.
Frisco police confirmed the incident and issued this statement:
“We can confirm that Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a minor vehicle crash this morning in the area of Dallas Parkway and Gaylord Parkway. There were no injuries sustained as a result of the minor crash. There is no further information to release.”
Elliott downplayed the accident with a well-played line.
I'm good. I've been in bigger collisions. Lol

It’s obviously great that no one was injured in the crash, but there’s no doubt this news made the hearts of Cowboys executives skip a beat.
Elliott is gearing up for the first playoff game of his career, with the Cowboys hosting the Packers on Sunday afternoon.
