Ezekiel Elliott's return to the Dallas Cowboys seems to be right around the corner.

Elliott has missed Dallas' last two games with a sprained MCL. There was originally some hope he could have played last weekend against Green Bay, but the Cowboys held him out to be cautious. 

Addressing reporters on Thursday, Elliott said he is "very optimistic" about playing against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He will wear a brace if he does.

"Barring any setbacks the next couple of days, I’m feeling good…I think I’m in a good spot," Elliott said, via ESPN's Ed Werder.

In seven games this season, Elliott has rushed for 443 yards and four touchdowns on 109 carries. 

Tony Pollard has filled in tremendously in Elliott's absence, posting back-to-back 100-yard efforts and scoring four touchdowns. However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made it clear that Elliott will be the RB1 when he returns.

Most likely, that will be this weekend.
