Leighton Vander Esch almost made himself public enemy No. 1 with his actions on Tuesday.

During training camp, the Dallas Cowboys linebacker was pictured tackling star running back Ezekiel Elliott in a way that left him twisted up to the point fans thought he might’ve torn his ACL.

That is not healthy.

Vander Esch was ranked No. 74 last year after an impressive rookie season in which he posted 140 tackles. However, he spent much of the 2019 season dealing with injuries, appearing in just nine games and recording 72 tackles.

Elliott rushed for 1,357 yards and 12 touchdowns on a whopping 301 carries in 2019. That was just three rushing attempts less than the previous year and only 21 carries less than his career-high of 322 attempts as a rookie in 2016.
