Pollard doesn't have the usage that Elliott had at this age.Ignoring the injury, Pollard is at an age when many RB's have a drop-off anyway. Look at Zeke in years 5+. True, Pollard has fewer carries than he might have up until now. But combine his age with the fact that he's a speed pack coming off a significant injury, and you better be concerned.
Dallas has handled this correctly by covering their bases with a vet, and certainly will draft a RB too.
At 25 years old Pollard has had 510 carries and 121 receptions.
At 25 years old Elliott had 1413 carries and 241 catches.
It's a significant difference in usage. I worry little about age or usage hurting Pollard or that he will drop off starting this year. If anything stunts him it will be the injury only.
