Running back Ezekiel Elliott received a huge ovation, along with a loud chorus of “Zeeeeke” the first time he touched the ball Sunday night for the Dallas Cowboys.

It was the Cowboys’ second play of the night against the New York Giants after taking the opening kickoff. He gained three yards on the play.

Elliott also got a big cheer from the AT&T Stadium crowd when he was introduced along with the starting offense before the game.

Elliott was suspended six games by the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, but that suspension has been put on hold after a federal court granted a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction on the case.

The Cowboys beat the Giants 19-3 Sunday night.
