Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is no mere mortal.

But it appears the NFL’s leading rusher might have found his kryptonite.

While in Orlando for the Pro Bowl, Elliott was enjoying some of the off-the-field-activities that are included when the NFL’s best players meet.

And having a good time during the Pro Bowl week is apparently what Zeke likes to do.

He wasn’t hesitant to jump on an inflatable, mechanical shark during one of the pre-game parties.

As you’ll see in the tweet below, the shark was a little more successful getting Zeke to the ground than most of the NFL’s defenders have been.

And fortunately for Cowboys fans, Elliott dusted himself off and kept being Zeke.

Which included rushing for 14 yards on two carries and team-high totals of 33 yards and three receptions in Sunday’s game.

Unfortunately, more of his teammates didn’t play up to Elliott’s efforts in the NFC’s 26-7 loss to the AFC.
