Rush­ing record in reach for El­liott

Calgary Sun - - SPORTS -

While the nFL and reps for dal­las run­ning back Ezekiel El­liott

con­tinue to duke it out in court over his six-game sus­pen­sion for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, he’s still al­lowed to play.

and if “Zeke” should rush for at least 80 yards in den­ver on Sun­day, he’ll have done that in 16 con­sec­u­tive games, dat­ing back to his rookie sea­son.

ac­cord­ing to Cow­boys broad­caster and ex-nFL quar­ter­back babe Laufen­berg, via proFoot­, that would be an nFL record. el­liott cur­rently is tied with mar­cus allen, who ran for 80plus in 15 straight games be­tween the 1985 and 1986 sea­sons with the Los angeles raiders.

VIK­INGS BRING IN AN­OTHER QB: With start­ing quar­ter­back Sam Brad­ford listed as ques­tion­able for Sun­day’s game with a knee in­jury, the min­nesota Vik­ings have signed quar­ter­back Kyle Sloter from their prac­tice squad. backup quar­ter­back Case Keenum would start in pitts­burgh if brad­ford can­not play.

CHIEFS CUT SPILLER, AGAIN: the Kansas City Chiefs have again re­leased vet­eran C.J. Spiller, clear­ing room on the ros­ter to pro­mote fel­low run­ning back akeem Hunt be­fore Sun­day’s home opener against philadel­phia. Spiller signed with the Chiefs in the off-sea­son in an at­tempt to res­ur­rect his ca­reer, which had been de­railed by in­juries.
