Friday update: Pollard is officially questionable for Week 14. The team gave Pollard the whole week to rest his foot injury and will likely test him out this weekend to see if he can go.

Thursday update: Pollard tore his plantar fascia on his long touchdown run last week, but still has a shot to play this week.

The Dallas Cowboys are heading into one of the most important games of their season in Week 14, when they meet the Washington Football Team in a contest with huge division implications. Running back Tony Pollard missed Wednesday’s practice due a foot injury, which was his first missed practice of the season.

Fantasy football implications

With Ezekiel Elliott and Pollard essentially splitting touches at this point, this is a notable absence for the change-of-pace running back. Elliott’s knee issue is still lingering, with the Ohio State product saying he’s still 3-4 weeks from being 100 percent. Pollard has seen tremendous usage in this offense this season and has become a viable flex play in fantasy lineups. If he’s active, Pollard is worth starting in Week 14 against a Washington defense that has not lived up to expectations this season. It’s a big week for Dallas, which means Pollard and the offense will be desperate to put on a big performance.
