Ezekiel Elliott's pro debut was worth the wait for Dallas Cowboys fans. After missing the team's first two preseason games with a hamstring injury, the rookie running back proved he could hold his own against the Seahawks on Thursday.

Though Elliott had just one quarter of action, he made the most of his time on the field. He had seven carries for 48 yards and even got the better of Pro Bowl safety Kam Chancellor on one play.

Needless to say, the debut was a big hit on Twitter.
