There's concerns, he's never been the primary or featured back until the SF playoffs game and he got hurt.https://www.dallascowboys.com/news/updates-may-2023
If there's any major concern regarding Tony Pollard's health this year, especially after suffering the two injuries in the playoff loss to the 49ers, the running back looks to be on his way to a full recovery.
If not, he wouldn't have been out on the field Thursday in the OTA practice, running with the first-team offense in team drills. Pollard will likely be limited at times this offseason as he manages the broken fibula and high-ankle sprain that ended his season in mid-January in the playoffs.
Pollard, who is playing on the franchise tag for 2023, is expected to be the featured running back this year after the Cowboys have moved on from Ezekiel Elliott. Other running backs on the field include Malik Davis, Rico Dowdle and recently-drafted Deuce Vaughn.
Pollard is coming off his best season of his career, rushing for 1,007 yards and his first Pro Bowl selection.
It's not just coming back from injury that's a concern, it's handling the starter role without being hurt again.
