Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard has proven himself as one of the most efficient running backs in the league. In fact, if Jerry Jones didn’t have a man crush on Ezekiel Elliott, he would be the feature back for one of the league’s best offenses.

Pollard was fantastic this year. He had 193 carries for 1,007 yards and 39 catches for 371 yards. But, for some reason, Dallas decided to give Ezekiel Elliott 231 carries even though Pollard was much more efficient.

And, he was supposed to be a big part of their Super Bowl push. But, Dallas lost last night to the San Francisco 49ers, 19-12.

But, more importantly for Pollard’s financial future, he suffered a bad injury during the game.

And, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Pollard suffered a broken fibula.

Unfortunately for Pollard, he is a free agent this offseason. And while, he should be ready to go by training camp, teams don’t love having damaged goods at running back. And, fairly or not, the 25-year-old is now seen as damaged goods.
