On Saturday night, Dallas will play in its home stadium for the first time this year. That means everybody watching the nationally televised Week 3 preseason game will be monitoring the crowd’s reaction to whatever Tony Pollard does against the Texans.
Pollard, of course, has been the lead back during Ezekiel Elliott’s holdout from the Cowboys, and he has played well enough through training camp and two preseason games for team owner Jerry Jones to feel comfortable cracking jokes about Zeke’s absence. Saturday night will surely spin this saga forward in some way.
As for the Texans, fans will be watching their running back situation, too. Chances are Duke Johnson will get his first playing time in a Houston uniform after a trade brought him to the Texans from the Browns. And, as always, the offensive line in front of Deshaun Watson will be monitored.
