Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a car accident just a few days before the Cowboys divisional round matchup against the Green Bay Packers. The Rookie of the Year and MVP candidate was on his way to the team facility when he got into a minor two-car accident.

Following from NFL.com writer Kevin Patra.

The Dallas Cowboys rookie running back was involved in a minor, two-car crash at 7:05 a.m. CST in Frisco, Texas, Frisco Police Dept. spokesman Benito Valdez confirmed to NFL.com.

No injuries were reported, and both parties involved in the crash went on their way a short time later, Valdez said. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett later told reporters that the minor fender-bender occurred about a mile away from the team’s facility, per NFL Network’s Jane Slater.

Elliott tweeted the following after the incident.

Well fortunately for Elliott this accident probably won’t be the hardest hit he takes this week given that Packers All-Pro linebacker Clay Matthews seems like a man on a mission after last week’s victory over the New York Giants.

Elliott and the Cowboys host the Packers this Sunday afternoon at 4:40 PM ET on Fox.
