Zeke Comin': Elliott Tweets He's Cleared After Recovering from Wrist Surgery

You know Ezekiel Elliott, the guy who was five yards away from eclipsing the 700-yard plateau during Ohio State 2014 postseason run against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon.

You know Ezekiel Elliott, the guy honored with the AAU James E. Sullivan Award in April, given to the nation's top amateur athlete.

You also know Ezekiel Elliott, the guy who did all that and finished with 1,878 yards and 18 touchdowns without the use of his left wrist. Wednesday, that changed.

Elliott said April 2 after getting his cast removed that he was still six weeks out from being full-go. We're nearly eight weeks removed from that, so Elliott made it known he's officially back in action. He first broke his wrist in fall camp in August, undergoing minor surgery in order to play this season.

"I was just out there basically playing with one hand. I was one-handed," Elliott said in April. "I couldn't carry the ball in my left hand, I couldn't punch with it. I couldn't do much with it. I was pretty handicapped."

The second surgery after the season kept him out of spring drills as he recovered, but it appears he is now.

America's in for a rude awakening if Elliott is in fact able to fully utilize both his wrists in 2015.
