There are at least two people who didn't find Jerry Jones' joke about Ezekiel Elliott amusing on Saturday night.

League sources told ESPN and the Dallas Morning News on Monday that Elliott felt disrespected by Jones' jest. "We actually thought it was disrespectful". Down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where Elliott is training during his contract holdout, the two-time Pro Bowl player apparently was miffed.

Jones made the joke Saturday after the Cowboys' preseason victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Hawaii.

Earlier this year, the president lashed out at a three anchors for the network, suggesting they work at CNN instead. "I'm very. California Senator Harris would also apparently win against Trump, ousting him from the presidency with a score of 45%.

The long-time Cowboys owner later said that he sees Pollard as a compliment and not a replacement for Elliott, but that part of the press conference didn't seem to get back to the running back.

Jones had been asked if running back Tony Pollard, who is having a strong training camp, was the best negotiating ploy the Cowboys have in talks with Elliott, which drew his response. Jones has praised his work throughout training camp, which might partially be to minimize any concerns about Elliott's absence, but reporters also have been impressed with his performances during practice. The star tailback is subject to fines totaling about $900,000. The fourth-round pick out of Memphis took five carries for 42 yards and a touchdown against the Rams Saturday in Honolulu, taking advantage of reps as Elliott sits out. Not replace that. And I mean that, not replace that.
