Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys

Ezekiel Elliott has 274 rushing yards but only on 48 carries as he’s averaging a career-best 5.7 yards per carry. It’s the exact same number of yards the Cowboys star running back had after three games in his rookie season when he ended up leading the league in rushing.But Elliott had 23 more carries at this point his rookie season and seven more carries at this point last season.“I would love to see it more Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys ,” Elliott said. “But I just think the nature of the games we’ve played in the first three games, we’ve been down. We’ve been having to try to come back. It’s hard to come back and try to run the ball. When you’re running out of time in the game, you can’t just be sitting there trying to pound it. You can’t have nine-minute drives when you need to score in three possessions. You know what I mean? You’ve got to conserve that clock and try to score as quick as you can.”The Cowboys never led in losses to the Panthers and Seahawks. They never trailed in a victory over the Giants.Dallas, which ranks 30th in total offense, has run only 165 total plays this season compared to 182 in the first three games last season and 204 in the first three games of 2016.Still, Elliott is tied with 49ers running back Matt Breida for the rushing lead.“It’s early,” said Elliott, who also has 11 catches for 37 yards. “Early in the season. We have a lot more football to play. I mean, just got to keep working, keep pushing, got to keep grinding , and we’ve got to keep executing. We’ve got to get better as a team.”Despite his 127 yards against the Seahawks, Elliott had two plays that cost the Cowboys. He fumbled at the Seattle 13 after a 26-yard fourth-quarter run, and he stepped out of bounds before catching a 31-yard touchdown in the second quarter, negating the score because of an illegal touch.Elliott took responsibility for both miscues.“I just have to have better awareness on both of them,” Elliott said. “I have to know when I’m near the sideline and give myself more room where if anything happens, if the play broke down, I need to extend the play. It’s just poor awareness by me and something I have to be more locked in on.”Detroit Lions G T.J. Lang injury update: ‘It’s nothing serious going on’ As Detroit Lions starting right guard T.J. Lang continues to miss practice, concern is growing that the veteran offensive lineman could be dealing with a serious injury. Lang had an injury-riddled season last year, and at 30 years old, his body isn’t getting any fresher.But Lang met with the media briefly on Tuesday and tried to put the concerns to rest. “All I can really say is that it’s nothing serious going on,” Lang said. “Just kind of being cautious right now with the training staff Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , trainers, doctors. My plan this year, right now, is take it day-by-day, be healthy and do my best to be out there for Week 1.”Lang added, “If it were the regular season right now, I’d be out there.”Last year, Lang was a regular on the Lions’ injury report as he struggled through injuries to the back, foot and a concussion. He was also coming off hip surgery entering the 2017 season, causing him to miss OTAs and minicamp. But back in April, Lang was pumped about entering 2018 surgery-free for the first time in three years.“I’m not making any big predictions here Womens Taylor Decker Jersey , but this is the first time I’ve done an offseason workout in three years, so I’m definitely excited about that,” Lang said at the time.But now that he’s been sidelined for over a week now, Lang admits it’s been a little frustrating not being out there with the guys yet again.“Anytime the plans kind of change, I think there’s obviously a little bit of frustration,” Lang said. One possible source of that frustration is missing out on time to build chemistry within the unit. Though Lang has played between Rick Wagner and Graham Glasgow before, Glasgow spent most of his 2017 season at left guard, not center. Still, Lang isn’t worried about it.“I’ve played a lot of football with Rick and Graham. So I do my best to simulate what we do on the field in the meetings in the locker room,” Lang said. “So we do a good job of communicating, even when I’m not out there.”As for missing out on preseason games? Lang isn’t sweating that , either. “Mentally, it goes a long ways [to be out there] for preparation for the season, but at the same time, I’ve been doing this for a long time,” Lang said. “I can find ways to simulate that, even if I don’t play this week or next week. I don’t think I’ll have any trouble getting off to a good start.”
