If Jerry Jones is worried about Ezekiel Elliott's holdout from the Dallas Cowboys, he's certainly not showing it.

The Cowboys owner has continued to pull no punches while talking with the media about his star running back's holdout.

Jones has, for weeks, been hyping up the Cowboys' other running back, rookie Tony Pollard.

The Cowboys' owner sent a not-so-subtle message to Elliott following Pollard's first preseason game.

Jones continued to send messages to Elliott on Saturday night. When asked about Pollard's role in the Cowboys' negotiations with Elliott, Dallas' owner responded: "Zeke who?"

Pollard had five carries for 42 yards and one touchdown in the Week 2 preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night.

Obviously, Pollard is no Ezekiel Elliott, but it's clear that Jones is confident enough in him to use him so publicly when it comes to this negotiating.
