Additionally, Elliott and the Cowboys have not made any progress in contract talks and have had little communication over the last couple of weeks, according to a source.

Asked if rookie Tony Pollard's impressive play was helping him with the Elliott negotiations, Jones quipped, "Zeke who?" to roaring laughter. Pollard still has work to do, too, which Jones said was evident after a crucial missed block on Saturday night. "It is, he goes out there and he plays to that level".

Otherwise, it's going to be hard to watch Los Angeles perform during their final two games of preseason, although it's tough to imagine things being more painful than the last two weeks.

One source consulted on the issue, who asked not to be identified, said MLB's move would affect minor league players as well. Until then, Major League Baseball and the MLBPA can only wait to see the consequences of the potential action.

"If [Pollard] continues this through the next several weeks, that'll really complement what we're doing with Zeke", Jones said.

There's no indication whether things have gotten hostile between Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys as the star running back holds out for a raise, but Jerry Jones on Saturday found a reason to laugh about the matter. Not replace that, and nobody be getting cute here.

Plus, as reliable as the regular starters tend to be, the Rams still need to make sure they have the right depth at certain positions on offense to make sure they're in the best shape possible, meaning the final two games will be extremely important. "I can picture those guys in the same sets at the same time and really giving the defense fits".
