The Dallas Cowboys had to practice without one of their top playmakers on Thursday. Fans speculated about running back Tony Pollard’s status for Week 4 after he was not seen on the practice field. Pollard’s absence isn’t due to an injury, according to ESPN reporter Todd Archer. Right now, all we know is that he’s dealing with a personal matter.
“Tony Pollard did not practice on Thursday due to personal reasons,” Archer tweeted. “It has nothing to do with an injury.” There is no need to be concerned.
As long as Pollard’s personal issues are resolved before Sunday, he should be fine to face the Carolina Panthers.
Tony Pollard was not at Thursday’s practice because of personal reasons. It’s not injury related at all. No worries there.

Pollard has rushed for 183 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries this season. He’s also caught eight passes for 65 yards. The Cowboys have finally figured out how to use both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard on offense.
As a result, they now have a ground game to go along with their explosive passing attack. Pollard’s ability to keep the team out of third-and-long situations is what makes him such an important playmaker for Dallas. With 7, he is currently ranked second in the NFL. On first down this season, we’ve averaged 4 yards per carry. If Pollard plays against the Panthers on Sunday, he could have another good game. Nokia News
