Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott is expected to make his preseason debut and get quite the initial test against one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Most of the attention will be on Elliott and another rookie, promising young quarterback Dak Prescott. While Elliott is the presumed starter at running back in Dallas, he has veteran help in Alfred Morris, who is having a strong preseason. Prescott could wind up as Tony Romo’s backup for the regular season.

The Cowboys will be minus wide receiver Dez Bryant due to a concussion suffered in practice.

Seattle’s focus will be on the offensive line and trying to settle on a group of five up front heading into the season. Game 3 of the preseason schedule always is the most significant dress rehearsal for the real stuff.

So the Cowboys game will also be the most extensive playing time of the preseason for Russell Wilson.

However, the Seahawks will hold out running back Thomas Rawls for another week as he recovers from last year’s broken ankle.
