Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is among the most imposing runners in the NFL, but a six-game suspension afforded him the time to take his fitness to another level.
Elliott went to Cabo while serving his six-game sentence after the NFL concluded that he’d abused his then-girlfriend in the summer of 2016. While he was there, he focused on transforming his body, and the results were amazing.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweeted a photo of Elliott’s new look on Sunday morning, and it’s got Cowboys fans champing at the bit to get him back into the lineup in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. If Dallas can pull off the win without him against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, he will have a chance to spearhead a last-ditch effort to make the postseason.
Elliott won the rushing title as a rookie in 2016 and had run for 783 yards in eight games in the 2017 season before he lost his final chance to delay the suspension in the courts and was forced to serve the suspension beginning in November. Dallas has gone 2-3 in his absence but managed to win back-to-back games to keep its playoff hopes alive.
