Jerry Jones expects Ezekiel Elliott to miss start of Cowboys' season

Jerry Jones expects Ezekiel Elliott to miss start of Cowboys' season”

Jerry Jones has apparently come to grips with this development: His star running back is going to miss some regular season games.

Elliott, 24, has two years and $12.8 million left on his contract, with him set to earn $3.8 million this season if he reports and $9 million next season.

Bryant also addressed some of the frequent criticisms that fans and analysts have used against Elliott, and said that if the Cowboys are concerned about Elliott's off-field issues, they should part ways with him instead of using the concern against him in contract negotiations.

The Cowboys face division rival the New York Giants on September 8. "The agent said Jones" reaction was disrespectful. When asked about signing Zeke long-term, Jones said one of his concerns would be that Elliott could just hold out again next year since "we're not gonna honor contracts".

Jones' realization that the Cowboys are planning to begin a defense of their NFC East title sans Elliott - and therefore likely starting rookie Tony Pollard at running back - could offer credence that the two parties are still far apart.

"Let me be real clear about something: I don't negotiate with players", Jones said.

And therein, Jones looked back upon pleasant memories of Elliott after he admitted to looking forward to a future without Elliott - at least temporarily. "We're a better team with Zeke". "I share with players my thoughts about our team and about why I have the position I have and to give them information as they're assessing their decision". So I'm trying to get any player to understand why I'm making the decision I am.
