Update: Pollard’s x-rays showed that he suffered a fractured left fibula, per Todd Archer. He should have around a three-month recovery time. Pollard will be a free agent this offseason, but the Cowboys could franchise tag or sign him to a new contract.
Update: As we expected, Tony Pollard has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a high-ankle sprain.

Update: Tony Pollard is being carted to the locker room for further evaluation, per Jon Machota. This is not a good development and his chances to return to this game appear to be getting smaller.
Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard had his leg rolled up on a tackle by Jimmie Ward. He was able to get to his feet, but is being helped off the field and is headed to the injury tent. Ezekiel Elliott will take over as the lead back while he is out.

Pollard has been the more explosive running back for Dallas this season, while Elliott has been a plodder of late. If Pollard can’t return, the Cowboys will have lost one of their two explosive offensive playmakers.
