Jason Garrett’s message to the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, their first day without Ezekiel Elliott: Life goes on.

As Elliott seeks legal avenues to delay his six-game suspension, the Cowboys held their first full-padded practice without their leading rusher. During the portion of practice open to the media, Alfred Morris took the first handoff from Dak Prescott. Garrett said the Cowboys will use Morris, Darren McFadden and Rod Smith in Elliott’s absence.
